July 31

We have Jesus! When the world seems to be falling apart, life is hard, and we are no longer comfortable, we have Jesus. He is the light that shines on our path, our salvation, when bitterness takes its toll and breaks our hearts. He is our comfort, our peace, and is gentle to our soul. He knows us better than we know ourselves, our deepest secrets are not secrets to him, and we don’t have to hide. Out of the depths, he rescues us, pulls us out of the muck and mire, and gives us newness of life. Don’t let upheaval define who you are; let it be Jesus. Run to him for protection, when you can no longer tolerate evil, he will not turn you away; he will restore your tranquility, and affirm your reason for living. Jesus is our source, seek him in every situation, when rejoicing, or full of sorrow; he wants you to include him, and be the rock, and firm foundation on which you stand. 

* You will say in that day: “I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me.

* “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”

* With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:1-3
