Today Reminder - 17 May 2012 (The answer)

The answer is Jesus. Do you feel tired today? Are you struggling with difficult issues? Are you alone? Do you stand before a difficult decision? Are you hurt? Life certainly is not a breeze. Life is a difficult process of standing up and falling down. Each day and each moment we are faced with so many possibilities and in so many ways it can go wrong. I have found myself so many times carrying the burden of wrong decisions and being reminded of them constantly when things don’t seem to go my way. I think what hurts the most is not only the bad choices we make but the people that is supposed to stand with us and then does not. It is in our weak moments that the storms of life crashes over us with continuous waves of sorrow. It is in these moments when we feel so alone that we must stand up and call His name, reach out and seek His presence and finally humbling ourselves on our knees and pray. There is no problem too big or too difficult for Him, and even of it does not go away, He will carry us through it, because there is purpose in God’s way and a reason for everything He does. When Jesus asked God to take this cup away if there is another way to save us, He did not, because this was the only way. Maybe our suffering is to save someone else or even ourselves. 

When you call His name and ask Him for help, you are not calling 911, you are calling God and what He does is His will and it might not make sense now, but it will eventually. The Son radiates God's own glory and expresses the very character of God, and He sustains everything by the mighty power of His command. When He had cleansed us from our sins, He sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. (Hebrews 1:3) Jesus sustains everything by the power of His command, what an awesome God.  Therefore you can know that He is with you sustaining you in every way and even carrying you when you are too weak to walk.

Therefore, it was necessary for Him to be made in every respect like us, His brothers and sisters, so that He could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then He could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since He Himself has gone through suffering and testing, He is able to help us when we are being tested. (Hebrews 2:17-18)

So now I conclude, the answer is Jesus and I carry you in my prayer today as I ask the Lord to be with you and carry you through your difficult times, to help you when you are tested and to guide you when you feel lost, to give you wisdom when you have difficult choices and to strengthen you when you are weak, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
