Help Us, Lord Jesus

Whenever I hear somebody who testifies about how God changed their life, it just never fails to stir my heart. To know that in this day and age, there are people who are actually interested in giving their lives to Christ, that there are people who still respond to God. I truly believe it as a miracle. Deep calleth unto the deep. I know that we easily get discouraged, sometimes even before we begin our journey we already feel like a failure...BUT go on, friend.

Don't give up, don't let go of your faith. God has promised to those who believe- that nothing could separate us from the love of Christ ( Romans 8:35 ) and nothing will, friend, nothing will. I, myself have tried countless times to just forget about it, you know ? I have backslid plenty of times because it can be tough every now and then...the battle is never ending.

BUT I forget that it isn't my battle that I am fighting- it is HIS, it isn't my righteousness that would bring me to heaven, it is HIS blood and HIS righteousness, it isn't my strenght- it is God's strenght. How easily do I forget ! And these testimonies that we hear about God's goodness in peoples lives and how He changes them is such an encouragement to me. It reminds me of His goodness in mine- it reminds me of how gracious and merciful He was to me, it reminded me that being a christian is an honour, that it is the greatest privelege any man could have- is to serve the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. To be a friend to our Creator, to be a servant, to be God's child. What an honour !

And it's sad when we forget. I believe God can get hurt and heartbrocken too, don't you think ? makes sense really because He is the author of emotions, He placed it in us when He created us. The desire in my heart is to have a closer walk with Jesus. To not just be a professing christian BUT a genuine child of God, manifesting His attributes in this world, to shine His light so others may see.

Jesus, Do not let me be satisfied with the rubbish of the world, don't let them take me away from you Lord Jesus. I only want to belong to You. At the end of my life Lord, it's you I want to see, it's you I want to embrace and spend eternity with. Grant it Lord. Lord Jesus, help us, help my friends who read this and who desire to serve you. Restore those who backslid Lord. Help us fight this battle, help us finish this race. Help us to be worthy of your name. Amen.
