Like a bridge over troubled water,,,
Can you see where your headed? The end of your journey? Can we be sure? It is all a matter of faith. Or believing in something presented to us. The Lord Jesus, has rightfully been referred to as our bridge. A bridge allows access to cross over from one area, or plain to another. So He fills that bill, so to speak. The thief on the cross, next to Jesus said, “Remember me Lord, when You come into Your kingdom”. Jesus replied to him “This day you will be with Me in paradise.” Notice He did not say, after you have done this, and this, and this. The thief’s belief and acceptance, that Jesus was, Who He said He was, and his request was enough. His faith and response was his access to the ” Bridge”. I believe that day that thief, who did not deserve it any more than any of us, danced with the Lord, in paradise, just as the Lord had said.
This is such a scary time to most people, and clarity or the ability to see a little ways down the road is what is causing so much of the fear. The bible has this to say about, FEAR, ‘Perfect love casts out fear.’ 1John4:18 Perfect=’s matured, established, love, casts out and over rides fear, settles us down in the protective loving arms of the Lord. That whole chapter of John is so excellent on love. Just proof reading it, to write it down brought tears to my eyes. Verse 10 says not that we first loved Him, but that He loved us. If He did, then He does. I’m so grateful for that love and mercy.
Take this time to become, or be re-established in His keeping love. You will receive the light or clarity needed to go forward, in these troubled times.
Father, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, I pray for a great outpouring of Your love, that sweeps us up and carry’s us through the alarming times we are living in. I pray for great revelation of You , Your will, and Your ways, to be deposited upon and into, all those asking this day, that we not only be able to see clearly for our journey, but to also be able, to help those we come across, in our daily walks, that we sow peace and Your love every where we go. Thank You Lord for the tender grace and mercy You shed upon us, and for answered prayer. In the precious name of Your Son Jesus, we pray amen.
