Sunday Devotional: Matthew 11:1-6

“When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.  Now when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?”  And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see:  the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.  And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”  Matthew 11:1-6

We all get discouraged.  Doesn’t matter who we are or where we are in our walk with Christ, we get discouraged.  Even John the Baptist got discouraged.  While sitting in prison for preaching the coming kingdom of God, he wondered if the Messiah had truly come.  So he sends some of his followers to Jesus to ask if He was the Messiah.  And Jesus’ response is simple, tell John what you see.  Jesus’ actions speak about Him being the Messiah.

When we get discouraged and beat down, pray to God, talk to Him.  Remember the work that He has done in you.  Be encouraged that He is there, that He listens and He understands.
