He gently clears the way

Through waves, and clouds, and storms
He gently clears the way.

Jesus led me all the way

This my song through endless ages,
Jesus led me all the way.

All Your Journey Through

The Lord who "thus far" has helped you
Will help you all your journey through.

Thus far has the LORD helped us

Thus far has the LORD helped us. (1 Samuel 7:12)

Jesus Is Not a Pharisee

God desires to heal His people from past hurts caused by rejection. He wants you to know He will never reject you. He says in Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (NKJV). This is referring to those who are laboring at trying to be perfect and then beating themselves down with guilty feelings when they fail.

Jesus was talking to the people who were trying to live under the laws of the Pharisees. It takes a lot to please a Pharisee, and they're still around today. I'm sure you know one, someone who conveys to you the message, "I'll accept you if you perform perfectly and please me. I'll reject you and withhold my love if you don't."

Jesus isn't a Pharisee. He says in John 3:18 that he who believes in Him will never be rejected. Believe in Him, love Him, cling to Him, rely on Him and trust Him. Then you can truly enter in to the joy of the abundant life He offers you.

Prayer Starter: God, thank You for loving me and always accepting me. I believe in You, love You, trust You and rely on You with all that is within me.

Pray for Connecticut

Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief. ~Psalm 31:9 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. ~Psalm 32:7 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. ~Psalm 34:18 May your unfailing love be my comfort ~Psalm 119:76 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. ~Psalm 147:3 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted ~Matthew 5:9 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. ~Romans 8:26 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8:38-39 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. ~Revelation 21:4

Trust In Him

Trust in him. (Psalm 37:5)
