Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Friday to you all! I sure hope that you are doing well today…and if you aren't; just know that Jesus is there for you…and all you have to do is call out His precious name…and He will be there to help you in your hour of need…Amen!!
As we begin our time together today, let me start out by asking you a question…"Are you feeling as though the weight of this world…or even the circumstances within your own life, are making it easy to want to give up?" If so…let me tell you that I do understand; because I have been there. In fact…there was a time in my life, when I could barely get out of bed or even accomplish the simple things that needed to be done around my home, due to depression and the things that I had been dealing with from the past; but a time did come, when I learned one thing…and it was how the name of "Jesus" alone could make a difference. There is a Bible verse that speaks on this in Romans 10:13, and we read… "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." I know that this verse mainly pertains to salvation; but after further study…I have also come to see that anyone who calls out for the Lord's help; will receive His help. At the time, it may not be a complete answer to prayer; but I have come to see that His name alone can calm the raging storm within…and make it easier to cope with what is happening at the time.
Last night, as I was thinking on this some more; my thoughts were taken back to some moments in my life, when I began to just speak the words "Lord Jesus," while either feeling overwhelmed by life…or by the thoughts of the past; that Satan seemed to be implanting within my mind. The thing that really stopped me in my tracks, after speaking His name; is how everything that had been weighing me down, was instantly removed from me, as peace began to take its place.
You know…we all experience moments in this imperfect world, where we just can't pray or talk with God in a personal way; because we are hurting so deeply. Times such as these can make us definitely feel, as though we have reached the end of the rope…that we once held so tightly too; but if we could speak a word that holds more power, than any other word; then in these darkened moments we're facing, we would truly come to see how this powerful name could enlighten our path and lift us back to our feet.
Today, maybe you have experienced one thing after another in your life…or even in this world, until you just can't take it anymore. Maybe there are no more words to speak…and maybe all you are feeling today, are the problems that seem to be haunting you…every moment and second of your day. May I encourage you to get alone and just speak one word…the name of "Jesus;" for I have come to personally see that this is enough, when there are no more words to say…and how can I tell you this today; because of a Bible verse in Acts 17:27, which says… "That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:" In other words…Jesus is already there with you…just waiting for your heart to connect with His…and when you speak His name alone; that is where a connection begins…a connection that can allow His powerful presence to enter you and calm the raging storm within; so that you can continue on your way.
Have a very blessed day…and always know that Jesus is there for you!
God bless…and I will hope to see you again on Monday!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
*If you haven't yet accepted Jesus into your heart…and have found the hope that can rescue your heart and save you from evil, I would encourage you to check out… "Come to Jesus."
