Look Up. We are a Blessed People.
1st Peter 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior are truly a Blessed people. We have a living hope in Jesus.
Psalm 46: 1 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
Our God is always available; He is our Rock, not only in times of trouble but also in the good times. He is there for us and we have the privilege as His children to talk with Him at any time.
There are times when we may feel overwhelmed with sorrows but we do not need to fear. Jesus is able to support us through all the chaos. We can hear His voice directing us and giving us His wisdom.
Luke 8:24 "Jesus rebuked the wind and the surging waves and they stopped, and it became calm."
Jesus brings stability to our lives when we stop and take the time to ask Him for help. Our help comes from the Lord, so look up for that is where our help comes from.
Another Blessing we have is that Jesus will build up our confidence for He will sustain us and He will comfort us. The Lord sees all and nothing gets past Him. Just as the disciples thought they were going to drown in the boat and woke Jesus up and asked Him for help, so also we can do the same thing today.
Our God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Put your trust in Him for He knows what is best for you.
Let us encourage each other in the Lord; Jesus keeps all His promises to us. Amen.
