Although it’s been a great month, with lot’s going on, I’ve found myself struggling.
Mostly with letting go.
Life has taught me when I’m struggling, I need more Jesus.
If I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I need more Jesus.
If I’m weary and burdened, I need more Jesus.
If my asthma is kicked up and my immune system is low, I need more Jesus.
Because it’s through His gentle voice I find wisdom for everything.
Sometimes it’s a matter of rest or diet.
Sometimes it’s a heart issue that needs to be surrendered.
Sometimes I just need more time with my Lord.
As I’ve been seeking God this month through prayer and extra Bible time, I felt led to read A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God.
It’s been wonderful.
Last night’s reading was exactly what I needed to hear.
“All our lives long we might talk of Jesus, and yet we should never come to an end of the sweet things that might be said of Him.” Chapter 3, page 39
“…God is so vastly wonderful, so utterly and completely delightful that He can, without anything other than Himself, meet and overflow the deepest demands of our nature, mysterious and deep as that nature is.” Chapter 3, page 40
There was much more, but these two reminders of Biblical truth were treasure to my heart.
God can and does fulfill all my needs.
Jesus is the most incredible person and there is no end to His goodness, His love, His faithfulness,…
I know these things.
I’ve experienced them to be true.
I just needed a reminder.
I just needed more time with the Lord.
And it has been sweet indeed.
Psalm 104:34 KJV — My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for Your truth. Thank You for being all we ever need. Lord Jesus, You truly are good, righteous, pure, holy, noble, faithful, loving, kind, gracious, and so much more. It is You, Lord who sustains us. Please let our hearts be cleansed before You. Please let us be humble and teachable, not haughty or proud. Lord, when we come across anything, joy or pain, let us look to You. Let our lives be focused upon You. Thank You for everything. Thank You for the good and the trials, for each are an opportunity to draw closer to You. May the knowledge of You fill the whole Earth. Amen.
