Our Rock Solid Savior—Jesus Christ!
Last night at a prayer meeting, we went into a time of soaking/worship and I got up to walk/pray around my apartment. And then I saw them—Jesus’s legs. Not in great detail, but just the sense that wherever I walked, wherever I was—there they were. Jesus’s rock solid legs.
And I felt he wanted to remind me, ‘Hello, child! :) I’m always here. In this time of city and global and life uncertainty, don’t forget for a moment what you already have. I am with you. My love, power, might is yours—if you come and get it. Rest in me, child. I love to lead you. Pray you see how strong you are, how much you can handle, if you do life with me. The world needs a Savior. Point them to me.’
Then this morning, I continued with my chronological Bible reading and got to Acts 2, where we read Peter’s first speech in Acts where he exhorts the crowd saying:
King David said this about him:
“I see that the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and my tongue shouts his praises! My body rests in hope … You have shown me the way of life and you will fill me with the joy of your presence.”
(Acts 2: 25-26, 28)
Maybe we often start our days with a ‘Hello, God!’ posture, ready to seek him and obey! Then throughout the day, we start to get weary–physically, mentally, emotionally. And then at the end of the day, we feel exhausted—ready to collapse into food, TV, sleep, and looking forward to our next quiet time session when we can fill up again. May we remember that wherever we go, the Lord is with us. We can get refreshment throughout the day! And what an incredible privilege it is.
This season, I feel God reminding me of the great pleasure of just resting with him. Lying still and letting him reveal and teach and prune and show me how perfectly he knows and loves me. As we go into today, shall we pray for more of these moments? That throughout the day, maybe even just a few minutes where we play a worship song, or go for a coffee, we forget worldly pressures and sink back into our Lord and wait on him? Believing he will give us refreshment like nothing else. 🙏
