Psalms 73:28: But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.
GOD is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in time of trouble. He is our Lord of lords and our King of kings, our Redeemer and our Savior, our Comforter and our Counselor, our Protector and our Provider, our Healer and our Helper, our Creator and our Father, and JESUS, the Son of GOD, is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, and no one comes to the Father, except through HIM—the Door of Hope—the Hope of Glory.
He is everything we need, more than we can ever dream or imagine, for GOD is Good, GOD is Just, GOD is Love. He is unchanging—all-knowing, all-powerful, all-present, all-faithful, all-in—and JESUS is the same yesterday, today, and forever, for He, equally the Son of GOD and the Son of Man, is the Source of Life, the Bread of Life, the Light of Life, the Well of GOD, from whence we draw and drink living water, and through the work of HOLY SPIRIT, GOD fills us, revives us, sustains us, restores us, and resurrects us, redeeming us, saving us and calling us from the wilderness—the dead, dry, empty places in our lives—to rivers in the desert, the spring of salvation, the road of righteousness, the highway to heaven, the hope of glory, the promise of His Presence, eternal life, the kingdom of GOD—HOME.
We've been adopted into GOD's Royal Family, grafted into the KING's Family Tree, through His only begotten Son--His LIVING BRANCH--JESUS CHRIST.
And from darkness to light is where GOD calls us; in the wilderness is where He equips us and empowers us; on the field of faith is where we’re tested and find favor; on the mission field is where we’re commissioned, commanded, assigned; and on the battle field is where we’re challenged, wounded, scarred, bruised, broken, and hurt almost every day. But we never give up and we never give in, especially in defeat, because we’re more than conquerors through CHRIST who loved us, and we’re overcomers who persevere—VICTORS, not victims—because this is the truth in GOD’s WORD: The nearness of GOD is our good, for GOD is WITH US, and He will never leave us nor forsake us, for He loves us, and He knows the plans He has for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future.
Without GOD, we can do nothing, but we can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens us, for nothing is too hard for GOD.
With Him, all things are possible, for there is no wound He cannot heal, no tear He cannot dry, no heart He cannot mend, no soul He cannot save, no life He cannot change, no person He cannot transform, no family he cannot restore, no bridge He cannot rebuild, no mistake He cannot forgive, no prisoner He cannot free, no dream He cannot fulfill…if we humble ourselves and let Him.
