Jesus is Near, He wants to Help!

I will lift up my eyes to the hills — from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made Heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.Psalm 121:1-3

Who is your helper? When you turn on the television and you listen to the news, what do you see and hear? There is a meltdown taking place in the world today — economically, environmentally, politically. You start to wonder if there is a future for your children. What hope is there left for the world?

I am just a simple farmer, but I want to tell you that the Lord Jesus Christ, the greatest Friend who has ever lived, has been with me in my darkest times. Today He is saying to you,

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you… I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10


Jesus Christ has never let me down. He is more than my Helper; He is my Protector. He is the one who looks after my wife when I am away overseas preaching. I know that she is safe because He stations His angels around our home.

I want to encourage you today to start concentrating on what Jesus says about you and not on what is going on in a world gone mad.

Let’s pray and refocus. I am so excited to be alive, because the best is yet to come — the Master is coming in all His glory. So, take heart, be of good cheer, because the Lord has promised never to abandon us.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I know there has been discord on this earth every day since the Fall in the garden. Help me to look forward to a day, help me look for and recognize the “New and better choices” that God sends my way, help me not only just look for and recognize the new choices that God sends my way, help me act on them, work on them and develop them to become reality so that I can begin to have the abundant life you spoke of in John 10:10, it is in your name I ask and pray,  Amen.
