My thoughts and ideas have no meaning to others until they find full expression in clearly articulated words – written or spoken. I can respond to my thoughts but others cannot. Sometimes I find it difficult to express those thoughts with a clarity that others can understand – ask my family. Simple clarity is a beautiful thing.

The intent of God’s heart is for me to know Him. So God with unparalleled lucidity reveals Himself.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us… (John 1:14 NIV)

No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side [Jesus], has made him known.  (John 1:18 NIV)

God's self-revelation encompassed creation, history and Scripture.  But the greatest clarity is found in His Son, Jesus – the Word becoming flesh. Knowing Jesus and walking with Him—committed to following Him—enhances my understanding of ABBA, God the Father. What a joy, what an opportunity!

My problem is not God’s clarity of expression. He did that well!  Will you join me in taking what He has revealed about Himself and planting those truths deep in our hearts?


Sharing the journey with you,
