What if you found yourself in a scary situation? What if life as you knew it came crashing down around your feet? Where would you turn? Would you go to someone who could fix it and make it all better? Who would that person be? Who can fix all of our problems and handle all of our scary times? Who can give us comfort when we have none? Who can take it all away and make it all better? Is there such a person? Is there someone in your life who can, with the wave of a magic wand, make all the “bad” disappear? Wow, wouldn’t they be worth their weight in gold?
BUT, there is someone who has that kind of power. His name is Jesus. When we accept Him into our hearts and become children of the ONE TRUE KING, He comes to our aide. He stands with us, He fights with us, He calms the storms of life, He gives us strength to endure. And when we can’t endure, He carries us through. He always, always comes. He is always, always on time. And, He never leaves us or forsakes us. And, He brings us out stronger on the other side!!
“He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” ~Isaiah 40:29-31
ONLY God can do that!!! There isn’t another person in this whole wide world who can do that for you, NOBODY!!
Sure, there are those who you can confide in, there are those who will try and help you through the tough times, and it helps to have them there, but can they comfort you like Jesus can? Will they stay with you every single second until it’s over? No matter how long it takes? Can they cover you with love and surround you with peace? Will they stick with you even when their life is calling them back? Can they carry you when you
cannot walk? Will they carry you out through it all to the other side? Nobody can give you 100% of themselves, because they don’t have it to give. They can try, but they just can’t do it. They have their own life and their own struggles and their own problems. It’s a nice thought, but it just can’t happen.
BUT, Jesus can!! He can, and HE WILL!! You will not walk one single second alone. You will not be left afraid and un-prayed for. Did you know that He prays for you? Jesus, in heaven, prays for you!! Wow, isn’t that a wonderfully, sweet, humbling thought? He loves you, He wants you, He gave His life for you, and He prays for you!!
He never gets tired, He never needs to go check the mail, He never needs to go home to cook dinner, He never needs to check the kids, or the dogs, or the laundry. He never needs to leave you to go to the store, or to work, or to the bank. He never needs to go mow the grass. He NEVER leaves!! He will be right there with you in your trenches until He pulls you out. ONLY GOD CAN DO THAT!!!
So, if you don’t know Jesus, if you don’t have a personal relationship with Him today….. Don’t ya think it’s time?
The ONLY person that you’re hurting by not knowing HIM……. is you!!
