The Lord is close to the brokenhearted,
and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
– Psalm 34
|April 8, 2011 Bible Reading and Gospel|
The decision to follow Jesus must go hand and hand with a firm resolve. Because loving Jesus means hating his enemy – Satan. And never underestimate Satan, he will do everything to stop us from seeking the light. He will try to envelop us in his darkness. So we need to be strong and determined if we will take the difficult journey with Jesus.
But let us not forget that our Father in heaven is Almighty. He will never forsake us. The more the devil breaks our heart, crushes our spirit, the more we get closer to Him. All we need to do is to fix our eyes on Jesus, our Savior. In time of distress, suffering, trials and temptations, let us never forget to call on the Lord to help us, to give us strength and guidance. Jesus is our beacon of light in a stormy sea. Jesus is our cool breeze in the desert. Jesus is our soothing voice in times of despair. Jesus is our way, our truth and our lives.
Lord, I know you will always be there when I need you.
