Daughters of Promise


Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.  John 6:26

I’m often only perceived as Someone who could stretch five loaves and two fishes into a meal for 5,000, or as One who could calm the seas and end a churning and angry storm.  I’m more than that!  It’s painful to be desired only for what you can give.  Am I just an avenue to a miracle and nothing more?  You know what it feels like to be valued only because you’re useful somehow.  People hear of your compassion and know they can call on you but once they get what they want, your value often diminishes.

What you need most is not what I can do for you, it’s who I am.  If the storm roars, that is not the point.  What matters most is whether or not I’m in your boat.  Your greatest need is to love Me.  Gifts won’t change you. Only worshipping Me brings the transformation you seek.
