Those two words — “But Jesus” — are the ones that give comfort in every painful circumstance we can’t control in our lives. Those words give us peace in every unwise decision we make that cannot be undone, and in every situation we cannot heal.
Jesus knows the gifts He stored in us and the plans He has for us. Jesus knows our fears, worries and insecurities. Jesus knows the mistakes we try to hide and the shame that festers as a result. Jesus knows what tomorrow holds, and He isn’t surprised by our sin … or sanctification. Jesus knows the potholes we’ll fall into, and He knows the stories we’ll tell about His grace that pulled pulled us out. Jesus won’t forsake us. In fact, nobody is fighting harder for us than Him!
I don’t know what you’re walking through. At times it might feel hopeless. It might feel overwhelming. It might feel discouraging, and your heart might be breaking. I understand all of that. So many mornings, as I step into my day, I crank up the worship music and pray for real things that will either draw us into deeper dependence on Jesus or tempt us to take advantage of His grace.
This practice of high praise and prayer of our heavenly Father helps free me from the burdens of this world. We are invited to bring all of our worries, fears, burdens, and pressures to our all-knowing and all-loving Father, who loves to help.
When the weight of what we are walking through feels too heavy and hard, let us do as the psalmist did:
“Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:5-6)
Like the psalmist, when we call on the Lord, He will answer and set us free. He is on our side He’s entrusted to us. So, in all situations, call out to Him.
Our prayers are unimaginably significant. Through prayer, we get to partner with God in the work He is doing in our lives, and the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors.
