Rant for Jesus-Jesus is There for You, March 2020

It is in our brokenness we will cry out to the Lord. In the deepest pain and darkest nights we realize we need Jesus to help us. When the waves of panic hit you when you least expect it, Jesus is there in the midst of all of it.

Going through the hurt and pain, living in those darkest nights is where I saw Him as He is. Faithful, true, steady as a rock, a shelter and fortress, my shield, refuge and defense, full of grace and mercy. He reminds me I am not alone and will never be alone. He says, fear not for I am with you. I will help you, I will strengthen you, and I will lift you up with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

He says I will deliver you, I am your Deliverer. I will lead and guide you, I am your Shepherd. Let me comfort you and restore what is broken inside of you. I will heal you from all the hurt and pain. I will mend every wound for I am your Great Physician.

Jeremiah 15:21 I will save you from the hands of the wicked and deliver you from the grasp of the cruel.

In reading His Word and all the experiences I have gone through with Him, I know who He is. I know His love for others. He shows His love in the way He treats us even when we mess up. He is my Savior. He is so forgiving, so loving, long suffering, faithful and true, all the time.

Because I know His heart, I can be thankful for the pain because it brought me closer to Jesus. Because of it, He has made me stronger, grew my faith, and increased my confidence and endurance. The pain changed me for the better, all because of Jesus. I will never forget that Jesus is the One who went through the pain with me, always there, never leaving me.

It’s true the Lord will use for your good, what Satan meant to harm you with. Remember this the next time you go through pain, hurt, disappointment, rejection, loss etc. Trust that Jesus will take care of you and will turn all the bad into something good to benefit you with.

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Because of Jesus I walk in victory. I can see what He has done for me. I will tell others about who He is and about all His wonderful deeds He does for those who love Him. I will follow Him all of my days and share His Word as long as I am able.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
