JESUS IS THE ANSWER
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 KJV
Jesus is the answer to everything. When we walk through dark valleys or are in the middle of a crisis, He is with us. I just recently went through a very dark valley and satan did his best to discourage me so I would stop serving Jesus. Our precious Saviour won the victory over satan when He died on the cross.
Not only is Jesus with us when we go through dark valleys, our Heavenly Father is also with us. What a healing balm it is to know that our Heavenly Father will never hit us, curse us or call us stupid. What a privilege we have to be loved by God and by our Saviour. It should make us shout with joy.
Lynda Tait Randle wrote a beautiful hymn about our loving Heavenly Father “God on the Mountain”. “For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley When things go wrong, he'll make them right And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times The God of the day, is still God in the night.”
I receive a lot of email from people telling me how wonderful it is that I write devotions. I appreciate those emails because all of us need to be encouraged. However, don’t look to me; keep your eyes on Jesus and on Him alone. I am human and I sometimes say and do things that hurt Jesus.
Precious Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your beloved Son to die for our sins. You are a compassionate loving Father. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
