    Dandled On The Knees Of God

    "Therefore, since we have been justified
    through faith, we have peace with God
    through our LORD Jesus Christ, through Whom
    we have gained access by faith into this
    grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice
    in the hope of God. Not only so, but we
    rejoice in our sufferings, because we know
    suffering produces perseverance; perseverance,
    character; and character hope." (Romans 5:1-4 NIV)

    Can you honestly say that you are rejoicing
    in your sufferings and in the hope of God?
    For many of us living with chronic illness
    and pain has become a struggle and a day to day
    challenge, yet we are told to hold fast to
    the peace that is ours through our LORD Jesus
    Christ. "Easier said then is done," you may say.
    However, do you forget that our Savior and
    LORD Jesus Christ also struggled? Do you forget
    that He suffered more than any other? Yes, Jesus
    was and is fully God, but he was also fully man.
    Jesus took on the person of a human so we would
    have a Savior to identify with.

    Are you struggling? Do you find your faith in
    God wavering or just hanging on by a thread?
    Know O Precious One that you are not alone. God
    hears your pleas for help and gently says to you,

    "'I will extend peace to (you) like a river and the
    wealth of the nations like a flooding stream; you
    will be nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled
    on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so
    I will comfort you; and you will be comforted over
    Jerusalem.'"(Isaiah 66:12,13 NIV)

    Jesus said, "'Come to me all you who are weary and
    heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my
    yoke and learn from Me for I am gentle and humble
    in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
    For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.'"
    (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV)

    You will find rest for your tired souls, nourish
    your spirit and be refreshed in Jesus. Come and
    find your spirits restored. Find Jesus, He is
    waiting for you with open arms, all you need to
    do is call upon His Name. You will be blessed
    beyond measure as you are dandled on the knees
    of God.
