Permit Even This

“When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, ‘Lord, shall we strike with the sword?'” Luke 22:49
“And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.” Luke 22:50
“But Jesus answered and said, ‘Permit even this.’ And He touched his ear and healed him.” Luke 22:51

When we receive a driving permit, there are restrictions and limitations with it . . .for the good of all.

Thank You, Father, for all You permitted Your Son to go through, for the good of all. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus Did

Permit even this
– unseemly situation
– act of indiscretion
– lack of respect
– feelings to be mishandled
– pride to be pulverized
– stares to occur
For the greater good
because Jesus would
– and did.

A Holy Permit

“But Jesus answered, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.”  Matthew 3:15

John didn’t want to baptize Jesus.  It just didn’t seem right.

Jesus, thank You for all You “permitted to be so”, in order to fulfill the prophecy and promise of being our Savior and King.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

With His Permission

I can’t see the good
in what is happening
only the pain
misery and suffering
then You whisper to me
“permit it to be so”
and I can go on
knowing that You know.
