No More Futility: a Reflection on Psalm 98, Psalm 135, 1 Kings 19:9-18, Ephesians 4:17-32 and John 6

Jesus consistently told his followers not to be afraid. Whether he walked on water or calmed storms, Jesus consistently was operating outside the box. I want to do such; but I often get burned. But so did Jesus. I am not the Judge. God will judge and he will do so with righteousness and equity. He is above all gods and can do none other than what is right, just and good. Recall the life of Elijah. He was often alone, misunderstood and persecuted. But, God promised to protect him and use him mightily. I want to live more consistently like Elijah, no matter the cost. He lived and spoke the Truth. Elijah did not live in the futility of his mind. Free me Father from futility.
