Faith? Yep! Committed? For sure! Trust Jesus to save? Oh Yeah! Goal of life to submit to Jesus as Lord? Absolutely! But what about when we hit those big, bad bumps in the road of life that rock our entire world and we discover we’re not as strong as we thought we were? Then what’s a Christian going to do? Answer: Cry out to Jesus. Jesus knows what it’s like to suffer. He knows what it’s like to be betrayed. He knows what it’s like to have everyone desert Him. He even knows what it’s like to die. But Jesus rose from the dead and is alive, seated at the right hand of God interceding for us.
Cry out to Jesus. Don’t be ashamed to be weak before Jesus as you cling to Him for survival. He will make you strong. And Jesus will give us peace and will always act in our lives according to the Father’s will in agape love.
