I wonder if I pulled out that old Bible Storybook, would the picture be as I remember? Maybe that picture of Pharaoh wouldn’t be as handsome as I recall. Maybe those frogs would not look so slimy in that glossy picture. The difference: Growing up! Aren’t you excited that as we grow we will know Jesus and His Word more and more? I am sure it has happened to you, too. A familiar verse all of a sudden is new because you are reading with adult eyes. And that picture you have of who Jesus is? Well, you just saw Him, the real HIM, not the Jesus you made up in your head long ago! It is exciting to see things in a grown-up perspective but there is only one way to see differently – continue to be in the Word and get to know Jesus!
What’s going on in your world this morning? I pray that you will see Jesus today in the midst of it all. Don’t just rely on your memory but get a fresh glimpse of Him today.
