Day 226: Finding Jesus (August 14)

In the still of the morning, I find Jesus.  I can hear His voice in the early morning air.                              When I rise, He is with me.  His strong arm is always there.

In the busy of the day, I find Jesus.  I can always feel Him drawing me to peace.                                     When all around me swirls the busyness of day, I can feel that gentle tug to steal away and walk in Thee.

In the evening He is near me, I feel His tender touch upon my face.                                                           When I unravel all emotions of the day, He pulls me close in a sweet embrace.

He is my best Friend.  He is my Brother.  There is no one like Him.                                                                  My pillar of Strength.  My gentle Savior, where would I be without Him?

In every pain and sorrow, I feel His promise I’ll get through.  In every success and joy I feel encouraged to celebrate without fear of tomorrow.                                                                                                                 Oh Jesus, my sweet Jesus, I need You every hour.  Keep pulling me into Your heart, and I will continue to follow.

Lord, today I ask that You would be found by every reader of this devotional.  Some of us are feeling distant and filled with fear and doubt, but I know a secret…..You are the only answer.  Some reading this may be facing their life’s biggest challenge so far, I know the answer is You.  Lord be found by every person who reads these words.  Fill their heart with the assurance of Your presence.  Let them feel You as You pour over them, in Jesus name.  Write songs of praise upon their hearts and give them the courage to open their mouths and sing it loud.  Anoint my friends to write and speak the words You’ve placed on their hearts today.  Let them set aside a chronicle of their walk with You so they can reflect on Your great faithfulness in times of need.  Yes, Lord come.  I trust You are already stirring the wind around them.

Friend, come dance with the Father this morning.  Instead of searching, be found.  Let Him come and reside with you.  He said He will be found by you.  Let your heart believe it.  Seek Him with all your heart and see what happens.  Turn off the sound of fear, and let the promises pour over you.  Take time today to acknowledge all of Who God is.  Acknowledge His great power and love.  Like waves crashing on the shore, let your praise pour into Heaven.  Let no rocks need to cry out around you.  Be a conduit of praise and worship.

“Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!  “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”  Some of the pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”  “I tell you,” He replied, “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”  Luke 19:38-40

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise the Lord.  Psalm 150:6

He is your constant source of stability; He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him.  Isaiah 33:6
