“You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands.
6 How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are! 7 I praise the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me.8 I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me.” Psalm 16:5-8
Hello everyone and welcome today, to Sunday Inspiration…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad that you decided to join me today and my prayer for you; is that you will truly come to see how Jesus can be everything…for every little thing you need in life!
You know…how is it that we keep searching for anything in this world; that can bring a smile and a ray of hope back into our lives, when Jesus is all of that and more? Jesus is the One who can listen to us, when others won’t listen. He can bring a peace to us that can sooth and calm the troubled waters…from the storm that is raging within us and He can provide for every need we have. Just think…whatever we lack…He fills it with Himself, while letting us know that there is nothing that He cannot do.
As I have walked through the struggles of life…I have truly experienced Jesus in my life! There were times, when I felt as though I wasn’t going to make it; but yet, Jesus stepped in and did everything within His power, to save me from losing sight of His loving presence. At night, when I prepare to go to sleep…after facing a tough day…I not only pray for His peace but I experience it because I anticipate it…and before I start my day, I pray for His strength…and He always is the One who keeps me standing, when I’m about to fall beneath my weaknesses.
How is it that we look for other resources in life or even try to make a way for ourselves, when Jesus is the only One, who can become everything, for everything we need? Don’t we know that He is the One, who holds all resources within His powerful hands and don’t we know that He would have never created us, unless He knew that He could care for us and be everything we would ever need in life?
I wonder what we truly think of Jesus. You know…it’s so easy to say…I know the Bible and all that Jesus did and I even know that He is a big and powerful God; but the question still remains…do we truly know that He can also be everything we need, while facing the challenges of our lives? Do we know that He can step into the emptiness of a broken heart and make that heart complete; just because He’s there?
You know…for over 15 years, I have not only served God; but I have also signed all of my emails or other messages with…it’s always & only because of Him…and you know what…that about sums it up because I cannot do anything, without my everything. He is the One that breathes new breath into my life each day and causes me to not only follow in His footsteps; but to also walk in His ways.
We could save ourselves so much distress and moments of needless suffering; if we would only look to the One and only source; that can be everything we need for the moment. Turn to Jesus today and let Him show you, how He can truly become everything…for every little thing you need in your life!
Blessings on your Sunday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
