It is Written.

Today’s revelation came from the beginning of the gospel of John chapter 1:1-3
How true is it that we sometimes draw personal and even corporate stability from what we see before us in the natural. The trouble is, if what we see doesn't make sense, if what we see we don't like, if what we see is something we don't want to be seing, we become unstable, we find ourselves battling insecurity and even doubt. Alternatively however, what we see can be good, causing us in that moment to be emotionally stable and mentally reasured. I began to wonder what went through the minds and the emotion of the people of Israel when the announcement of the birth of Jesus was made. Perhas they though... 'this is it, the beginning of our good news', and rightly so. However, here's the revelation;
'The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in Isaiah the prophet: ... (John 1:1-2a)
What they perceived to be the beginning what not the beginning. The answer to their lack of security was not only before them in the natural, but He was, before the heavens and he earth! The beginning (and in fact the end) of everything they would ever need came not only well over 400 years earlier, but berfore the existense of the world. The beginning of my good news, the beginning of your good news, the beginning and the end of the answer that any of us are looking for in our own lives, is and was, before our problem even arose. Praise The Lord that faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Heb 11:1). Why? because 'It is written...' (John 1:2a)
