A dear friend, Ken Needham, recently suffered a heart aliment and cancer—at the same time. He’s fine now (bless the Lord) and he received a brilliant insight during his time in hospital…
“…While the surgeons and most of the nursing staff were excellent, there were a couple of exceptions, people who had some knowledge and experience who “knew what was best for me” but were not listening to me. It is MY body. I have inhabited it all my life and I know it well. Their intentions were no doubt good, but listening to them worsened rather than improved the situation. This started me thinking about the Body of Christ, the church. There are those who “know what to do”. They are trained, they have experience, but they are not listening to Him, and we are His body. Are you listening to Jesus? Do you know His will? Are you going to be part of what He is doing as we enter each new day, or are you coasting along thinking that you are in charge and know what to do?”
Listen to Jesus—He knows.
