The name that is above every name.
The name every knee will bow to and every tongue will confess is Lord. No matter what you believe on earth ... one day your tongue will confess He is Lord.
When I think of Jesus, there are so many words I could use to describe Him. He is every one of these things: He is ...
- And so much more...
I'm sure you, like me, know many folks who are suffering. If you don't know them personally, you certainly have heard of the suffering. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed at what people are facing, don't you?
My biggest prayer is they would feel the Presence of Jesus with them. I know that when this prayer is answered, they will be able to cope with whatever they are currently facing because His Presence brings peace and strength beyond our human capacity.
Jesus is hope. Hope beyond our wildest imagination. Hope that lasts to eternity. Hope that never dies. Hope that endures the ugliest of what life hands out.
When I think of all the beautiful, faithful, loving people on my prayer list, I fight the temptation to be discouraged. It would be easy to wonder why there is so much suffering, especially for God's people, in this world. I could spend time asking God about this, but it would be time wasted in my humble opinion. My time is better spent asking Jesus to go make Himself known to each one, touching their spirits in a way that makes them sure they are not alone.
Jesus. He is all we need. He is all we will ever need. Today, tomorrow, forever. He is enough for the people on your prayer list and mine. Never stop bringing them before His throne.
