Fret-Free Friday: Either
Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Even if everyone else is a liar, God is true. As the Scriptures say about him, "You will be proved right in what You say" (Romans 3:4 NLT).
Either God is all-powerful or He is not. If He is not, we are sunk. If He is, we have nothing to fear.
Either God is all-knowing or He is not. If He is not, we'd better figure out what is best for us. If He is, we can be confident He will not make mistakes with our lives.
Either God is all-present or He is not. If He is not, we need to find a way to protect and take care of ourselves. If He is, we can be assured His eye is watching us, His hand is upon us, and His covering is over us.
Either God is the Father of mercies or He is not. If He is not, we should work hard to find a way to appease His wrath. If He is, we can, by faith, receive the forgiveness He's provided for us through the shed blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Upon His Shoulders, Close to His Heart
Jesus, your High Priest, carries you on the strength of His shoulders to bear you up in all your trials. He keeps you close to His heart with the deepest attention and affection. He represents you before the Father with compassionate and sympathetic understanding.
Jesus, your High Priest, strengthens you and helps you; upholds you and undergirds you; carries you and cares for you; represents you and remembers you. He is praying that you will be fruitful in everything by remaining within the will of God.
