As he was saying these things, a woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the one who nursed you!” He said, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it.”
LUKE 11:27-28 (CSB)

Our family has elevated status with a particular hotel brand by virtue of years of traveling and using their credit card to earn points. The same is true for our hometown airline. These statuses have not done us much good the last year or so. Status is nice; experience is better.

Jesus’ mother Mary has a pretty unique status, wouldn’t you say? It is a status none of us will ever attain. However, we can do what she did. She heard God’s word of invitation and humbly accepted his mission for her life. She said Yes to God. 

You and I can hear God’s words of truth and life and respond like her. We can know and experience God. This kind of life does not bring much status in the world we live in today, but it does guarantee ultimate status in heaven. A credit card company may give you a gold card. In heaven, streets are made out of gold. 

Knowing and experiencing God ourselves is ever so much better than wishing we walked in Mary’s shoes. 

This offer is open to all who apply. You and I can stop reading about other people’s experiences with God and experience our own. 

Know God’s words of truth and life. Do what they say. Live a life of God’s dreams for you. 

There is no higher status we can receive than Child of God.

I will know and experience God.

Our Father, thank you for giving us the privilege of ultimate status, of knowing and experiencing you as our Father in heaven. Teach us your words of truth and life. Align our lives with your truth. Attune our hearts to your grace. May we know you and experience you in the rhythms and routines of this day. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
