“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Jeremiah 33:3 KJV
I watched a family movie and they had a terrible storm with a lot of lightning. The electricity went off and the telephone didn’t work. They had an emergency and needed to call someone for help but they were unable to call because of the storm. We have many storms in our life and we need to call Jesus for help.
There will be times in our life when we need someone and nobody is available to help us. Jesus is always on call twenty four hours a day. He is waiting for us to call Him and we will never get a busy signal or a recording to call back. What a healing balm it is to know we can call Him day or night.
We have storms of hatred, ridicule, sarcasm, and all other things that hurt Jesus and break His heart. If we will love one another as Jesus has commanded us to love, we won’t have as many problems and we won’t hurt Jesus. May God help us to love one another as Jesus wants us to love each other.
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (John 13:34). Do we love each other unconditionally? We need to ask God to help us. My Mother said to me many times “If you don’t have anything good to say, keep your big mouth shut”.
Let’s make a special effort to be kind and loving to each other and encourage one another instead of criticizing and judging each other. A pastor said in a sermon “If you will make sure your heart is in right standing with God, you won’t have time to judge and criticize others”. All of us need to be encouraged.
