WHAT A FRIEND, WE HAVE IN JESUS
What do you cling to when the winds and rains are raging in your life? These are times when you need a reliable source to keep you afloat. A source that responds to your cry, understands your need, knows your spirit, and gives you the victory.
Jesus is the link that represents you to God. He holds you close to His Father through good times and through rough times. Jesus ministers to your spirit as He provides unbroken communication between you and God. God gave Him power when He directed you to pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus, His precious Son.
If you live long enough, you will face mortality, a situation where you come so close, but death snatches its hand away. That is when Jesus quickly stands up to the Father on your behalf. You avoid fate and live to see another day.
Include Jesus in your prayers, He never waivers. Just as an anchor keeps a boat in place, Jesus is the anchor for your soul, a solid rock in the middle of sinking sands. Jesus has wrapped you in His care, and because of Him, you will have smooth sailing to the Father.
What an awesome Friend, we have in Jesus.
Life is called a journey because there is always more. Just as we never get to experience all of it, we never will reach a level where there is no more growth or maturity. Learning never ends and spiritual development never ends.
When you were born into living, there were stages that you journeyed through. No one is born talking, walking and knowing about living. Living life, developing the spirit are taught behavior. Once you step into awareness of what it is all about, you take it upon yourself to further your growth in these areas.
Think of living as a process. You are forever being taught. As you are being taught, you are teaching others.
Think of spirituality as a process. The more you learn, the more you need to learn. The closer you are to God, the process of living throws you more curve balls and you need to seek God on a new level. This process is never ending, that is why your “well of faith,” must constantly be replenished.
Our relationship with Our Lord and Savior can always be close, but life requires that we subtract from our spiritual tank, and like a car that you fill with gas, if you continue to drive... you must replenish.
