21 At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 22 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” 23 Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
God wants to turn things upside down because He values all of us not just the powerful. He speaks to those who are willing to listen. How cool that the disciples got to see and hear Jesus. They got to ask questions, they got to hear the answers. How do you think they felt? Do you think they realised and appreciated the special position they were in? I am sure if I had been there I would have potentially missed how amazing the situation was.
Jesus speaks to each of us today too – if we are willing to listen and want His help. Do we understand how amazing that is? That the creator of the universe wants to help us live life well. I know there are lots of times I forget. I want to get better each day at appreciating the opportunity of interacting with Jesus.
Thank you Lord that you are available to all of us and help me to really engage in that relationship more each day.
