God sent the Judges to rule over His people when the time of darkness, when they did whatever they wanted because they did not have the leader that could lead them to live the life God had planned for them.
They did not have the leader who lived in fear of the LORD. They did whatever they wanted because they did not know who God was, the one who set them free from the salvery. They did not see Him. They worship idols, not God.
We need the godly leader who can lead us to the right path, to God. We need the godly and anointed leader who can lead us in worshiping the one true God.
We need Jesus.
God sent Jesus his only Son, the one He anointed to live on earth, to show us the way to Himself. Through Jesus we can see God,we can know God, we can feel His presence.
But we do not always set our eyes on Him.
But we often take our own way.
But we worship our own “idols” instead of He whom worthy of all worship and praise from us.
That is why we need Jesus every moment in our lives.
That is why we need Jesus to lead us.
That is why we need Jesus to teach us to live godly life.
That is why we need Jesus.
With Jesus we can walk and live in this dark world. His word will be the light to the dark path we walk through every day. His word will be lamp to our feet and will ligth the right path to choose every day.
This life is not easy to live. But with Jesus we have hope and receive grace to continue until the day we see Him face to face.
He is my faith, joy, hope and in His holy name I pray.
The first time I was brought before the judge, no one came with me. Everyone abandoned me. May it not be counted against them. But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength so that I might preach the Good News in its entirety for all the Gentiles to hear. And he rescued me from certain death.* Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.
(2 Timothy 4:16-18, NLT)
The Word of God in 2 Timothy reminds me to keep on rely on the King of kings whom has anointed by the God himself to be with me, to lead me, to teach me, to rebuke me, to change my heart, to direct the course of my life, the core of my faith, the hope in living in obedience to Him and His calling in my life.
Jesus himself reminds us at the End of the Day, this world will hate His followers, many will be sent to justice for what they do for Him, but worry not because though no one won’t be there with us, but He will.
Scary? Yes. But we have hope. We have the King of kings stand with us. We have the One who have defeated death will stand with us.
When I feel hopeless and weak, He is there to give me hope and strengthen me because He stand with me, holding me in His arms.
I am not alone for the KING of kings, my LORD and SAVIOR is with me. Even others leave me, He is still with me.
My prayer for your today that you will make Jesus the King in your life and follow him in obedience to His word.
Today is the last day of the Relentless Study with HelloMornings. We studied the book of Judges together for 6 weeks. I joined one of the Facebook groups where I found my accountability friends. We encourage each other by sharing our thoughts on the reading of God’s word and pray to lift each other up to the Father. You can find more details on HelloMornings and their available groups, if you feel God leads you to join and find accountability that you need to walk in your faith.
God has plans for each of us and He does not want us to walk alone in this faith journey.
Blessings to you on this weekend!
