Jesus Is Our Reason For Living!


Jesus Is Our Reason For Living!

Today many are tired and needing refreshing that can only come from our Heavenly Father.  It has snowed outside, and there is a fine powdered snow on the ground and roof tops are slightly covered in our town.  It is cold and we are reminded that there is more yet to come.  Winter is here and grace is needed to go through.  Yet, one can be grateful to Father to be able to be home and somewhat protected from the outside world.  As we are outside at times, we see outdoor workers digging in the street perhaps on a broken water main and I am ever reminded how thankful  I am to be indoors.

That said, there are many suffering in this season due to lack in their life.  Many suffering because of their cold spiritual condition and many suffering because of the cause of Christ. We need Jesus to be our reason for living.  He alone is our help in this time of trouble.

Lord strengthen us today to be all we are called to be in Christ.  Strengthen that which remains.  In this natural winter season strengthen us and refresh us but let us remember that in the Spirit we may not be in a winter season and need to be busy about the work of the Kingdom.  Plainly the Kingdom of God is within us and it cannot get rain, or snowed upon.  Let us abound in the work of the Lord.

Give us wisdom to schedule our lives with time at your feet so that life is worthwhile.  Plainly it is too much to face on our own.  Let our prayer be, "Lord we are your creation and the work of your hands.  Help us today to look past our weaknesses and see your strength for you are a very present help in time of trouble.  Help us to lean heavily on your grace today, in Jesus name".

  22While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22 (AMP)
