“The Lord satisfies us each morning with His unfailing love so that we may sing for joy to the end of our lives” (Psalm 90:14)
When we rise in the morning, “Give me Jesus.”
As we go through the day, exciting or mundane, “Give me Jesus.”
At the end of our days on earth, we can sing for joy with a feeble voice, “Give me Jesus.”
Jesus’ love never fails, and we will never regret living our days for Him–He always satisfies!
We do not have to fear or feel anxious when we trust the Lord.
Isaiah 41:13 states, “For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand saying unto thee, Fear not, I will help thee.”
We can trust that He will guide and help us. Like a child holding the hand of her Daddy, we can trust that He won’t lead us down the wrong path. Even if that path looks unfamiliar, untraveled, rugged, and filled with obstacles – Jesus is there to hold our hand and promises to help us!
We have amazing promises from God’s Word in Isaiah, chapters 40-41:
- He promises to make the crooked places straight and bring the mountains low.
- In the same chapter, the Lord said He would “thresh the mountains and beat them small and make the hills as chaff” (Isaiah 41:15).
- He will open rivers in high places and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
- He will make a wilderness a pool of water, and the dry lands springs of water” (Isaiah 41:18).
I always thought these passages were lovely and poetic, but I have recently imagined what that would look like and why that is such a blessing. When the Lord takes out all of the crooked, jaggedy turns and makes the path straight, it will be easier to traverse and take less time. When the mountain is brought low, and Isaiah even describes how God will do it, the path takes less energy and exertion to accomplish the same goal—getting to the other side.
When we follow Jesus, and He orders our steps, not us, the blessings abound!
Making rivers high up in the mountains, where there are usually only small streams and fountains of water in a desert? Now, that’s miraculous! When we follow Jesus, He promises to perform the miraculous in our lives.
Give me Jesus!
