“Jesus Sustains Me”
Houston…. we have a problem! No one would deny that experiencing serious problems high up in the air, millions of miles away from the surface of the earth, is never a good thing. So it feels when trouble reaches the skies of our own lives. Everything seems to be going fine – when all of a sudden, circumstances come that seem like they will cause us to crash and burn.
In times like these, we must be reminded that a little turbulence does NOT mean we won’t make it to our destination. It simply means that we have an opportunity to pause and calmly think on the One who is the lifter of our heads – the One who can lift us high above the turbulence of life and cause us to be at rest in the midst of trouble. No one understood this better than David when he faced, what seemed like, insurmountable trouble in his own household. In Psalm 3:5, David reflected on how he laid down, slept, and awakened again in the midst of trouble, because God sustained him. David’s experience teaches us that resting in God, is not taking a blind eye to what’s going on around you, but a posture that says “I see what’s going on around me, yet I’m gonna be OK!”
Houston, we have a problem – may be what you speak, but do you know the One who sustains you even in the midst of trouble? His name is JESUS – he is your motivator and turbulence regulator!!
