Don’t give up….I know that today you are on the verge…you are at the brink….the place where you feel you have nowhere to go…..but do not give up…..Because He knows the Plans He has for you…..So when you feel like your hope is gone….
Say the name of Jesus…
There is no other name I know, that can calm your fears, and dry your tears, and wipe away your pain. When you don’t know what else to pray, when you can’t find the words to say, Say the name of Jesus….
There are times when words cannot express the fear, despair and discomfort you feel. When you try to pray, your pain is so strong that you cannot even put your words together. At those times, just Say the Name of Jesus. There is something about that name. There is healing and deliverance in His name. He is your Saviour and Friend. He sticks closer than a brother. He is going to make a way, when you say the Name of Jesus.
Make a commitment today, that no matter how bad it gets, no matter how the circumstances may stack against you – that you will always worship Him. Give Him the Glory. Only He knows our deepest pain and fear, and only He can deliver Him. Remember He does not respond to your pain, but He will respond to your Pursuit of Him.
“We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20)
But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, ‘You are my God’. My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, O LORD for I have cried out to you;” (Psalm 31:14-17a)
“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD” (Psalm 31:24)
So today, lay down your burdens at His feet, and say the Name of Jesus. Worship Him, although you are weak. He will hear you….He will break the yoke, and lift the heavy burden. He will respond when you reach for Him.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I feel your presence as I write this morning. I know you know what my friend is going through this morning. They are on the verge of a breakthrough, but they have become weak and weary. I ask that you RESTORE them this morning. Give them the hope they need to face today, to NOT GIVE UP. I know that their heart is breaking and yearning for peace and comfort. You are the peacegiver and the only who can comfort them. Please reveal yourself today, and let them be encouraged by your Word. Please use me to convey your words to those who are weak and heavy laden. I know you know the Plans you have for them. A plan for a good future…. I thank you for your goodness and mercy and that you remain a strong foundation. I thank you for the deliverance you have provided. Thou art a MIGHTY God. In the precious name of Jesus I pray….Amen
