“For in him we live, and move, and have our being…”
In Christ, we are never alone because GOD is with us. Our LORD and our GOD tells us we can come to Him anytime, that eloquent words are not needed to come to Him. He welcomes us to come to Him and talk with Him anytime, that we are not bothering Him, “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden,” and to “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness” because in Him, we have all that we need. He tells us to trust Him. We cannot do this life on our own. For certain, we cannot keep ourselves alive because He is the One who gives us every breath we take, and “In Him we live and move and have our being.”
This life and everything in it is fleeting. There is only ONE thing that is certain and sure. ONE that is eternal as everything else is frail and temporal. That ONE is Jesus Christ, the only Sure Foundation. While there are mere mortals who try to rise up and take claim to be messiah, there is ONLY one Messiah. His name is Jesus Christ.
He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Sure Foundation, the True and Faithful Witness. He is the Lamb Slain Before the Foundation of the World. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Bright Morning Star; He is the Source of Life, the Root of Jesse, the Offspring of David, and the One Who Sits at the Right Hand of the Father. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the Eternal One, the Fourth Man in the Furnace, The Son of the Living GOD, The Firstborn of All Creation, and He is the Living GOD. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Anointed One, The Messiah, The Ancient of Days, The Savior, and The Soon Coming Lion of Judah.
He is truly the All In All who defines His own children. His children are not defined by any man. His children are accepted into the beloved, bought with His precious shed blood, and they belong to Him. And if He be for them, who can be against them? Absolutely no one. Our LORD and SAVIOR is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. He is the Everlasting GOD, Emmanuel, and He is The Wonderful Counselor. He is altogether lovely, the Sweet Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, and His love is better than the finest wine. THAT’S THE GOD WE SERVE.
He is the Prince of Peace that breaks down walls of hostility, The Cornerstone, The Lamb of GOD, and He is the Light of the World. He is indescribable, and He is The Discerner of the Hearts of Man. He is Wisdom, Insight, and Understanding. There is none like Him, and there never will be. He is Hope, and He is Healing. He is the Good Shepherd, the Image of the Invisible GOD, and He is awesome, worthy of all glory, honor, and praise. He is glorious and majestic, perfect in all His ways. Our GOD: The Manna From Heaven and the Living Waters. THAT’S THE GOD WE SERVE.
PRAYER: LORD of Glory, You are awesome in might and in power. You, O GOD, deserve all honor and praise because of who You are. You are merciful, and You are the Giver of Life. You hold the waters of the earth in Your hands and Your voice is as of the voice of many waters. Thank You for Your unfailing love and Your compassion that fails not. Sovereign GOD and King, to You may I always lift my voice and sing and glory in Your presence. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
