Happy Monday to you all! I hope you enjoyed your holiday break. I know I did.
Today’s phrase: I must tell Jesus
Matthew 6:6 (New King James Version)
6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
The song writer says, “I must tell Jesus, All of my trials, I cannot bear these burdens alone” Raise your hand if you feel like you MUST tell JESUS. As long as we live on this earth we will face trials and tribulations, persecution and judgement, disappointment and failure and so much more. We can’t control what we may face, but we can control how we react to the challenges of life.
Stop running to everybody under the sun and making Jesus last. When life throws you a curve ball, say “I MUST TELL JESUS”. When people try to give you unsolicited advice on your situation tell them thank you, but I MUST TELL JESUS. When people inquire about things that you are dealing with tell them that you MUST TELL JESUS.
Sometimes we cause ourselves undue stress when we get other people involved in our situations and circumstances. The first problem is we tell people with no power or authority all of our business without first consulting with God. When you go to God in prayer He will direct you to the appropriate people (if necessary) to listen to you here on earth. But when you go to people first you will end up going to people who do not have your best interest at heart.
When problems come and they will come say, I MUST TELL JESUS. When people disappoint you, instead of complaining say, I MUST TELL JESUS. When you become overwhelmed say, I MUST TELL JESUS. Tell Jesus all of your desires and problems. Tell Jesus all of your failures and disappointments. Tell Jesus everything and tell Him FIRST. Talk to Jesus more often and see how things will change in your life. He may tell you to change something personally and He may even tell you to change some people you hang around. No matter what He tells you, just TELL HIM FIRST! Make God a priority in your prayer life.
GET IN THE HABIT OF TELLING JESUS! HE HAS THE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO CHANGE THINGS AROUND.
I don’t know about you, but I MUST TELL JESUS!
Have a blessed evening.
