A Great Adventure Began With A Mundane Day! For Daisy, it was another mundane Monday. Another day of listening to her teacher lecture to the class; however, something different was beginning to happen on the inside of her. As she listened to her teacher say in Genesis 1:1; 26 - 27; 31 and John 1; 3:16 - 18 God was the creator of heaven, earth and everything in it. He loved us so much that He gave everything He had, in order for us to live with Him for eternity. Just as Jonah and Jesus had peace in the middle of the fiercest storms in Jonah 1:5-6 and Mark 4:38-40; we can too. As Daisy sat in class listening to her teacher lecture about the parallels between the Old and New Testament she began to realize, there was, is and never will be a greater love story than God’s love for His people. This is incredibly awesome! Daisy was consumed with excitement to share her new revelations with her best friend Isabella. Daisy explained, the New Testament confirmed what the Old Testament said about giving authority to God’s word and His plan to be fulfilled here on Earth. Isabella said, “How can that be possible?” Daisy said, “The prophesies in the Old Testament are confirmed through the people, who actually live out the prophesies, when and where God decides.” Isabella said, “I don’t believe it. Give me one example.” Daisy said, “I thought you would never ask.” Daisy explained how Hosea prophesied as God said, ‘1 & 15 Out of Egypt I called My Son,’ in Hosea 11:1, and Matthew confirmed Hosea’s prophecy, when Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus fled to Egypt from Herod in Matthew 2:14-15 (NRSV). Isabella said, “Wow! This is a revelation, I never thought about the scriptures this way before. I bet there isn’t anymore.” Da... ... middle of paper ... ...s word with people, and the fact that He is honestly the same in the Old and New Testament, together with the fact His love for us will never end.” Daisy and Isabella both agreed, once people understand Psalm 37:4-6 and Matthew 7:7, nothing will keep people away from a loving and generous God, who only expects our trust and commitment. In Daniel 3:25-27 and Matthew 14:22-25, Jesus walked with through fire and on water for and with his brothers. In the Old and New Testament, He never abandoned any of us.
