Strength in Jesus!

The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Psalm 18:2

Jesus is many things to many people. To some He was just a man. To others he was a remarkable man in history, and an effective teacher. Friend, Jesus is Lord. He is my rock, my fortress, my joy, my peace, my healer, my defender, my best friend, my constant companion, my one true love. Jesus is my all in all.

Jesus is the only constant presence in my life. He has proven to be my healer, my fortress, my peace, my joy, my confidant, my strength and my all at different times of my life. I can tell you that everyone in my life, at one point or another has left me down. I know that my family and friends have have my best interest's at heart but they have other responsibilities. To be completely honest, my family and yours along with our friends were not created to be everything to us. I have heard people saying "my spouse is my everything". Nothing can be further from the truth. Despite best intentions, people will fail us. They are not equipped to fulfill the tasks we put on them. They cannot rescue us every time we need them. There is only one person in all history that willingly took on the world and that the Lord Jesus Christ.

The name Jesus means “Jehovah saves”, and the word salvation means to rescue. So Jesus’ mission and purpose of coming to Earth was to save us. He should be our all. He is the One who made it possible to us to have a new life. He the One who save us from eternal damnation. He is indeed our all in all.

If you are discouraged,lonely and have been rejected many times and you are desperately looking for a friend who will welcome you with open arms, allow me to present you Jesus Christ. He is the only One who would put himself on the line for you. He cares about you. I do not know where you find yourself today. Maybe you are alone and your telephone is not rigging. You maybe without a job and resources but you are not alone. Reach out to Christ and He will hear you. He will place you under His wings and He will be your fortress, your peace, your salvation. He is all that you need.

Let us pray.
Father, we thank you for sending Jesus your son to save us. Thank you for your word that is forever sealed in our hearts. Amen.

Praise the Lord!
