LORD, NOT JUST SAVIOUR
LORD, NOT JUST SAVIOUR
If we call ourselves Christians, then we must ask ourselves, have I truly accepted Jesus as my Lord…..not just my Saviour….not just repeating a prayer so I can get to heaven, but have I TRULY given my life to Him, fully wanting HIS will in my life and that of loved ones….. not my own… no matter what that may mean? Have I been making time with Him my main priority….not because I think I should, but because I truly WANT TO, because I love Him so much, and yearn to be with Him?
Have you asked those questions? Are you living this way, if not, don’t despair. He is always there to help us to be what He wants us to be. Just ask Him to help you grow to that point in your relationship with Him. Then spend time with Him—-talking to Him from your heart, repenting of your sins and failures, and asking for the strength to please Him. It is His great desire to change us from within, and that is how our relationship with Him is established. When He is everything to us, then we can rest in the beauty and soothing Truth of Ps 91.
“He who dwells in The Shelter of The Most High, who abides in The Shadow of The Almighty, will say to The Lord, “My Refuge and my Fortress; my GOD, in whom I Trust.
For He will Deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; He will Cover you with His Pinions, and under His Wings you will find Refuge; His Faithfulness is a Shield and a Buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilent that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made The Lord your Refuge, The Most High you’re Habitation, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.
For He will give His Angels Charge over you to Guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, least you dash your foot against a stone.
You will tread on lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot. Because he cleaves to Me in Love, I will Deliver him; I will Protect him, because He knows My Name.
When he calls to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will Rescue him and Honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My Salvation.”
