Last night, as I got around for my evening, I found myself singing an old hymn that goes like this… “I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord. No tender voice like thine, can peace afford. I need Thee, oh I need Thee…every hour I need Thee! Oh, bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee!”
You know…there’s nothing like the calming feeling, of a tender voice; that can enter our spirits and bring peace after a difficult day. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in everything that takes place in a day; but why suffer needlessly, when we can walk into the arms of God…a God who can hold us close and comfort and bring peace…a peace that can calm any troubled moment.
I don’t know about you; but I need God’s peaceful presence in my day…all day! I remember a time, when I didn’t see it this way. In fact, I would get upset very easily and let the cares of the day emotionally abuse me; but now that I have come to know Jesus and I truly know that He is always there and will be there, when I need His comforting peace.
In Psalm 119:165, we read…"Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble." You know…there’s something about having a true connection with God…one that automatically makes a person feel not only connected to God; but to His peace and every benefit He offers us. I know in my heart that if I’m having a difficult time…or if something in my day seems hopeless…or even when pain makes me feel discouraged; that God is there to run to…One that no other can compare to.
No matter what you’re facing today, just know that God is there for you…and He longs so much to have a connection with you; that will fill you with His peace. You know…we don’t have to suffer through difficult moments alone, when there is a God…whose true purpose is to love and care for us. Take hold of Him today and I promise you…He will NEVER let you go; but will ALWAYS be there for you!!
