Dear child of God,
As I look upward to our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who sits enthroned in sovereignty and majesty,
Ruling over all things,
My spirit cries, “Abba, Father.”
My hope and trust is in Him.
At the same time my heart is aching for, and with you.
“This is my (our) affliction,
yet we will remember the days of the Most High.”
All of this life is sandwiched between God’s promises revealed,
and His power to fulfill—
His presence always with us to make it palatable.
How well Paul knew the promise of the Father, that “everything works together for good, to those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose—that we might be conformed to the image of Christ, His Son.” Romans 8:28-29.
Christ while here on earth looked to the Father in His sovereignty for all things. Knowing His promises, presence and power, His heart was, is, and has always been with us. As one of us He knows, feels, and cares for us in all our heartaches. As He reigns in heaven today His heart still bleeds for us, and bids us to come to Him. He bears the yoke of this life and all its adversity with us. Music: Whispering Hope
Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, make us to know your presence with us today. Open our eyes to see you in the midst of all this life. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
