challenged…

I find myself challenged…
by the One who calls things that are not…
as though they were…

…the God who gives life to the dead
and calls things that are not as though they were.
Romans 4:17
Challenged… to do the same…
Challenged to see… in others… in me…
what He sees…
when it’s all said and done…
when it’s all restored…
He sees the beginning from the end…
that’s how He can call things that are not…
as though they were…
That’s how He called… Simon… Peter… a rock…
Simon… fully restored… is a solid rock… therefore He calls Him Peter…
even though he stepped out of the boat… and sank…
when He asked him to pray in the garden… he slept…
followed Jesus… but denied knowing Him… not once… but three times…
He sees… what is… or will be… when it’s done…
He names it… calls it… now…
The challenge for me…
to see restored…
hear… what He calls… me… loved ones… difficult ones…
so I can name them too…
speak that truth… into their lives…
help them to see…
and believe…
with… peace…
knowing…
He cannot lie…
Challenged to speak truth… in love…
Challenged to see… what He sees…
Challenged to name… as He names…
…speaking the truth in love,
we are to grow up in every way 
into him who is the head, into Christ…
Ephesians 4:15 ESV
Father God… teach me to see like You… all things restored…
Open my ears to hear… what You call what…
Bless me with trust and peace…
that what You see… will be…
restored…
