Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying, “John has been raised from the dead”; others were saying, “Elijah has appeared”; still others, “One of the ancient prophets has arisen.” But Herod said, “John I beheaded. Who then is this about whom I hear such things?” And he kept trying to see him.
Do you know who Jesus is? Are you distracted by what others say about Him? Do you honestly seek Him or depend on who others say He is? Keep searching, if you honestly seek Him, you will find Him. Do not listen to others, listen to your heart and hear the words He speaks.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I open my heart to you, earnestly seeking your truth. May I never be distracted by others, by promises made and not kept. You are the way, the truth and the life and my safe refuge. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
