RUN TO JESUS
therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh
to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners, and
purify your hearts, ye double minded.Ē
A friend called me on the phone this afternoon and cried her heart out
about some things she is going through. She is facing very difficult
decisions and circumstances. We talked for almost an hour. I
listened to her and then I read her one of my writings that she said
She said that she trusted God, but she just felt overwhelmed. I told
her to get out of the way and stop trying to solve her problems and let
God solve them. When it comes right down to it, He is the only One
Who can fix what is wrong in our lives. Our feeble efforts are
nothing compared to His Works.
I donít know about you, but I am tired of satan coming against us. I
can honestly say that I may get down and upset about something I am going
through for an hour or so, but I have learned to immediately run to Jesus
for help. We are instructed to resist the devil.
One of the best ways to resist the devil is not to give him any respect
and when we capitalize his name (I used to do that), then we are giving
him the impression that he is important to us. We need to realize
that he may win a battle, but he can never defeat us as our Victory was
won by the shed Blood of Jesus on the Cross.
When you fully comprehend in your heart that if you will run to Jesus when
something is wrong, then you will always get the victory and be at Peace
even in the midst of the most difficult situations. I know this from
personal experience. I urge you to immediately run to Jesus and let
Him give you Peace and the Victory. Jesus is an Expert at defeating
Jesus Loves you and desires to see you happy. However, He canít help
you unless you go to Him and get out of the way and let Him fill your
heart with His Peace, Understanding, and Love.
