If you’re finding yourself at a crossroads today, don’t fret. Don’t panic. Don’t question the road. Instead, look up. Hang on to God’s promises and wait for his next direction.
In Christ we’ve been given the Holy Spirit who is always at our side. Paul writes that he dwells in us. The promise of the paraclete is that we have God’s spirit to guide us and comfort us every moment of this day.
We have become so accustomed to the story of Jesus that we barely even flinch at the goodness of God. Have you become jaded about Jesus? Do you hear the good news of the gospel and simply move on? I wonder how our world would change if we went back to a place of awe and wonder at the goodness of the Lord!
Hallelujah. It is a word uttered in worship as an expression of rejoicing. It means God be praised. Hallelujah! God be praised. It’s a wonder followers of Jesus don’t walk around saying it all day long. Hallelujah!
The reason you and I can overcome anxiety is that we have a loving father who cares for every need in our lives. We don’t have to carry our burdens anymore, because we have a Savior who cares for us. He lovingly makes himself available for us every moment of every day.
Most of us walk around with wounds we don’t deserve, injuries we didn’t ask for, and it hurts. We feel victimized even by those we love the most. Yet as awful as our pain is, it’s not unnoticed. God sees. He knows.
We have a Savior who intercedes for us. We have Christ who stands on our behalf making intercession for us. Because he died, we get mercy. Because he bore the price for our sin, we are justified. Have you received Jesus in your heart? Are you confident that the price for your sin has been paid?
