12/23/16 Walking Through Life
“Come to Me! It doesn’t matter how small your concern is or how large the challenge before you presents. Come to Me! I have decided to always be there for you. Jesus made the way. When your life becomes a heavy weight, I am there. When you rejoice, I am there. I can’t see the size of your mountain. I only see the joy of being on the other side of it, whether you must go over it or I move it aside. Come to Me! I have chosen to walk with you through your life. I am now the center of your life. I love you!”
Hebrews 13:5b AMP
…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
Hebrews 13:6 AMP
So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?
Since the cross, when the veil before the Holy of Holies was ripped in two, puny mankind - who previous to this time was truly on the outside looking in - has the kind of access to God that the angelic creation will never have. We can now come directly into the presence of God anytime we desire to go there and are accepted as if Jesus Himself entered.
Stop and ponder that, and then ask yourself why in the world we don’t spend the majority of our time in His presence. That is how limited and puny our thinking is! Of course, the Lord did say that His thoughts and ours are two different things, and this example certainly proves it. We settle for so little, and it must grieve the heart of God how often we miss what He’s made available.
“Thank You” and “forgive me” don’t even begin to cover it, Lord!
