Hello everyone! Well another new day stands before us…one that gives us the greatest opportunity to experience Jesus…and oh how I praise Him for that…Amen!!
The other night, I was sitting here in my office…thinking not only on the difficult times that surround us right now; but also, on how I could have never made it through my own difficult times without Jesus.
You know…life can seem so hard and very difficult to get through at times; but could you ever imagine going through these hard times without Jesus. From my own past experiences, I truly believe that it would be like walking through an endless day of darkness, with no sunshine in sight.
As I was looking for a special Bible verse that would go along with this writing; God kept leading me to one verse and that Bible verse is found in John 14:6, which reads… “Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
One thing God taught me through this Bible verse; is how He is truly the way that leads us away from darkness…and the truth that keeps us free from the deceptive lies that Satan attempts to use against us, while being the life that truly breathes new life within us. Now how are we ever going to escape darkness…deception and a life that is attempting to bring us down to nothing, if we don’t have Jesus to be all we need and more?
After recovering from multiple knee surgeries…counseling for sexual abuse and the loss of many things in my life; these are the words that truly connected me heart to heart with God… “Breathe on me, “Oh Spirit”…to heal every hurting part; to make my life in tune with yours; so You can speak to my heart. So nothing is there but You and me…to have your perfect peace; as the dark places in my heart, pull away in sweet release. Then as Your breath pulls away, the darkness shall with it go; and my heart shall be brand new, with more love than I could ever know.”
Oh how we need Jesus…especially during these troubled times! We need Him to breathe upon us and give us the wisdom that can keep us away from the path that Satan so longs to walk us down; but if we don’t have Him there…life is only going to become a darkened path…that gets darker with time.
When God gave me this poem many years back, I began to see how His presence alone could be like a strong magnet…one that could pull out all the hurt and darkness; that I could never even begin to rid myself of.
We need to realize today that the evil that is rampaging around us; is not as powerful as the power of God…but look at it this way; when we don’t have the power of God in our lives…surrounding us and sustaining us through these troubled times; then we will only experience what we see, as a power like no other…a power that comes from Satan.
Every day of our lives, we need the power of God surrounding us and shielding us, from these evil and deceptive moments that attempt to take us down and have control over our lives…and the only way that’s going to happen; is when we allow God to reign above the powerful forms of evil and darkness…for when we allow God to reign above every other thing in our lives; that is when His breath alone will pull away the darkness from our lives, while allowing us to experience a heart brand new…one with more love than we could ever have known.
As you walk through your day, may I encourage you to shun evil and turn in the direction of Jesus…and allow Him to show you the way that can lead you away from the darkened moments in your life, while speaking truth to you…a truth that can keep you free from deception, while breathing new life within you…a life that can become stronger…and a life that will be able to weather the storms that come your way.
I don’t know about you; but after all I have walked through in this life of mine, I could never imagine walking through the hard times without Jesus. If you are attempting to walk through life alone, may I encourage you to turn to Jesus; for He will be everything you need, during a time of need.
Have a very special day…and I will hope to be with you soon! Take care…and many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
