Don’t Be Afraid to Ask

Jesus told his disciples he would “be killed, but three days later he would rise from the dead. They didn’t understand what he was saying, however, and they were afraid to ask him what he meant (Mark 9:31-32).”

I’m not sure why they were afraid to ask. But I am sure that we don’t have to be afraid to ask Jesus anything.

He invites us to “come boldly to the throne of our gracious God (Hebrews 4:16).”

Let us Thank the Lord

Some wandered, hungry and thirsty. Others were in prison. Some suffered affliction, near death. Others were in a storm, filled with fear (read their stories in Psalm 107).

All of them cried to the Lord in their trouble. All of them were delivered from their distress. How should they respond? Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men (Psalm 107:8,15,21,31).

Whatever trouble you face, cry out to the Lord. And when he delivers you, say thank you. Happy Thanksgiving.
