He is the Way

"And you know the way to where I am going.”
“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. 
“We have no idea where you are going, 
so how can we know the way?”
Jesus replied, "I am the Way..."
John 14:4-5
The disciples were always looking toward
what they didn't know or couldn't see.
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father...”
Jesus replied, "Don’t you believe 
that I am in the Father and 
the Father is in me?"
John 14:8,10

Jesus was right there with them,
 trying to prepare them for His departure,
and they didn't get what He was telling them.
But Jesus wasn't trying to give them answers.
He was trying to get them to look at Him.
"You don't need to worry about the way.
I AM the way.
You don't need to look for the Father.
I AM in the Father.
I AM the answer to every question."
And so it remains true today.
Jesus gives me Himself and says,
“Don’t let your heart be troubled. 
Trust Me."
He knows my every question.
Every answer I need is found in Him.
Jesus, You want to remind me that You are
the way through every circumstance,
the truth for every lie
and the life in every dry place.
I take all the questions I have
about things I can't figure out
and lay them at Your feet.
You are enough for Me.

I am leaving you with a gift—
peace of mind and heart.
Come on, let's be going."
John 14:27,31
