Jesus Is There!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Cecil Thompson

Hebrews 11:3

"I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Think back to the loneliest time you have ever experienced. It may have been moving into a new community, a new school, a new job, being rejected---or perhaps it was just that the situations of your life had changed and you were all alone. How did you feel? What could have helped relieve the loneliness?


Is your heart filled with anguish longing and care?
Look up dear pilgrim, Jesus is there!

Do life's problems seem more than you can bear?
Take heart dear servant, Jesus is there!

Do friends forsake you and leave you in the air?
Open your eyes dear child, Jesus is there!

Have business ventures left you with debts and doubts?
Look up dear sad one, Jesus is there!

Does the loss of a loved one leave you with grief?
There is One who can comfort, Jesus is there!

The enemy of our souls is eager to bring defeat and doubt. He knows that the more he fills us with loneliness and pain, the less effective witnesses we are for the power of Jesus Christ. This is why we must turn to Jesus in the midst of our trials and praise His dear name.

There is a valid rationale for this action. When we turn to Jesus, we will begin to realize that He endured far more than we will ever endure, and He did it for us. It was His love for us that caused Him to leave the joys of heaven and come into this old sin sick world and bring salvation.

Please listen carefully to what I am going to say: Not only did Jesus suffer and bleed to redeem sinners who come to Him for salvation, but He suffered in order for believers to live in victory. When we walk around with a hang dog expression and complain about all of our problems, we fail to be a witness of His wonderful plan and purpose for our life.

Jesus left us with a fantastic way to deal with everything that comes our way. Read His comforting words in Matthew 11:28-30: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Jesus is always there!

Blessings dear hearts. Walk with God today. Trust Him completely and be a blessing.
