God knows where you are and what you’re going through! There are times when we feel all alone. Times when we feel as though even our best friend has forsaken us, left us to deal with our problems or difficulties all by ourselves. These moments can be overwhelming to say the least. However, we must understand and know that there is always someone to turn to when we find ourselves in circumstances or situations that seem to be beyond our control. We can turn to Jesus!

God sent His Son, Jesus, to this earth to provide Salvation for us from our sins. His desire for each and every person on this planet is that they be saved and cleansed by the blood of Jesus. Once we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus, we become His people, His children. In that relationship, we now have the opportunity and privilege of receiving all that He has for us. His healing, His deliverance and His provision are ours as needed. All He asks is that we love and serve Him with all our hearts, our minds, our souls and our strength. Whereas He came to this earth and died for us, is this not a most reasonable request from Him? If you and I have received such a wonderful gift as the Salvation of God through the blood of His only Son, then shouldn’t we be willing to love, trust and serve Him all the days of our lives.

Jesus said in Luke 12, verses 27 through 31 . . . “Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will He clothe you? O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be given you as well.”

Once again, the Lord God is totally aware of where you are and what you’re going through right at this very moment. I would encourage you today, if you are struggling, if you feel all alone; I want you to know that Jesus loves you and He is with you at this very moment. Regardless of the difficulty you may be experiencing, He wants you to know that He is there for you. All you need to do is call out His name, reach out to Him and He will touch you, He will minister to you. The Lord promised His people: “And surely I am with always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20b

May the Blessings of the Lord be yours as you reach out to Him with all your heart!
