Day 125- Richmond, Virginia: Reaching Out Our Hands
How comforting is it knowing that regardless of what happens in our lives we have Jesus by our side, when we rise with the birds and sleep with the Angels of God protecting us. Who do we fear? Does anyone have the authority or power to hurt us? We are both saved and walking amongst the living Holy Spirit onward. If we fall or start to sink as Peter did outside the boat, all we have to do is cry out to God, “Lord Save Me”! At that moment did not Jesus reach out His hand and say “You of Little Faith” and take him by the hand to save him, from the Apostle Matthew? Amazing!!!!
Life is only as complicated as we decide to make it. Usually the problems that we face are the result of greed, envy, not being patient, or lust. What is it about us that make it so difficult? Having temptation does not help our cause, nor does having thoughts that do not allow God to save us from going down a road that leads us nowhere fast. Basically, the ball is in our court and what will we do?
What we all must do consistently throughout our lives is to stay humble and keep our faith both in times of despair and also in times of prosperity. We times get tough, Jesus gets tougher. There is no obstacle that God cannot see us through in this world. God gives us the strength to not allow past troubles or the fear of what is to come to hold us in chains. How is this all to be? Is this not all very perplexing to us as humans, to trust God unconditionally as we reach out our hands to be saved?
In Psalms God teaches us a valuable lesson: “For though the LORD is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands”. Though we have troubles and are in the midst of danger God knows us and will be there with us as we trust, believe, repent, have faith, and call out to our Lord and Savior so that He can protect us.
