Have you ever experienced a bad dream that you just couldn’t seem to wake from? You toss and turn but the dream hangs on,just when it appears the worse is about to happen you find yourself calling on the Name of Jesus. Isn’t it amazing how even when your conscience mind is turned off there is something within us that still cry out to Jesus in time of uncertain danger.
When Jesus is not in control of your life it is like that kind of dream. We stumble from one bad situation to another thinking we know what to do too solve the problem and change the situation. Yet, things go from bad to worse nothing changes. The night of confusion and bewilderment seem to hold us captive in the darkness of uncertainty.
However, when trouble abounds our hope lies in the name above all names, the name of Jesus. When we call on his name chains are broken. When we surrender our lives to him our direction becomes clear and when we make him the center of our lives, they are filled with love and joy.
He is ever present to intercede on our behalf. we have his assurance he will never leave or forsake us. He stands ready to fight our battles and nothing we do can separate us from the love he has for us. He gave the ultimate sacrifice that we might be covered under the umbrella of his love by shedding his blood for our sake.
He died the death we should have died to remove the stain of sin from our lives. Giving us the opportunity to wake up from the darkness in our lives and step into the marvelous light of his love and forgiveness. We do not have to remain tangled in the web of darkness that surrounds a Christ less life. “Behold I stand at the door and knock if any man open the door I will come in and supp with him”.
Allow the love of Christ to shake you and wake you to new life in the brightness of his Glory. Without Jesus in your life the darkness could lead to eternal consequences. Do you really want to keep sleeping?
