I could tell you of many times through my life when Jesus has had his hand on me and protected me, even when being unaware.
Our pastor said something this past Lord's Day that should have us all thinking. "Are you any closer to your Lord now than you were a year ago?" Oh, yes.........but it's a daily walk. Because of the outpouring of His love into my life I strive to be more like Him in my everyday walk.
He has definitely filled me to overflowing, even though I am so undeserving. When I'm "being still" and thinking of what He did for me........I mean REALLY thinking of what He did......taking my place on the Cross; dying there in my place for my sins; how do you say "thank you" to an act of love so profound? He went willingly to the Cross.......so that his shed blood applied to my life makes me clean before the Father. And because he did not stay in the grave, but arose, He is still alive today, and sits at the right hand of God the Father.
As I grow older, I care for "religiosity" less and a closer "relationship" with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords more!
I wish this type of relationship for you today. Do I still stumble along the way? YES! Because I am human. And in my weaknesses, He is made strong:
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41: 10
Why not ask Him to be your source of Strength and your Savior today:)
