Mark 11:9-10 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: Blessed be the kingdom of our Father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest. ~ Without a revelation of who Jesus was, they could not have cried out Hosanna. Hosanna is the Hebrew word meaning save now, we pray. Without them having the understanding that Jesus was salvation, they would have not been able to cry out Hosanna.
We can only live in the depth of our understanding and revelation of who God is. If we only know him as salvation, that’s the deepest we will ever be able to go. But as we begin to see him as he truly is, it opens our eyes and our understanding and it causes faith to be quickened resulting in a release, a response, a manifestation in our lives. Ignorance of not knowing who he is leaves us in places of frustration, lack, and below the life that’s been made available. If we don’t discover him as our healer, we will remain in sickness, disease, and broken. If we don’t know him as the lover of our souls and the only one who can satisfy, we will always be lonely, empty, and broken. If we don’t discover him as our provision and the one who maintains our lot, we will always live in lack. We need encounters with Him. We desperately need to see who he is. We cannot live off of someone else’s revelation. We must discover him for ourselves if we ever want to have the benefit of his life impacting and changing ours.
Matthew 5:6 says that if we hunger and thirst, we will be filled. Let’s use our faith today to hunger and thirst after him. Let’s use our faith to discover him and see him in his glory. When we do, we will be changed forever.
