Daily Devotional – 2/5/13 “Let me reintroduce you …”

On your daily journey, the road gets a little bumpy; there’s twist where there shouldn’t be any and curves that pop up out of nowhere that makes you sometimes doubt your purpose. Yea, I know about those restless nights and tear filled mornings; so I thought it necessary for me to reintroduce you to somebody who can help. No, He is not a lawyer who will charge you by the hour. He is not a doctor that will charge you an office visit. He is not a shrink that will charge you to listen to you talk and neither is He a gossiping friend who will tell all of your business. BUT, NEVERTHELESS, HOWEVER & STILL; He is the Man who will wait by the wayside until you call Him; hear you call His name even when you’re whispering, bless you with a gift when the world say you’re not worthy of it; increase that same gift when folks say you’ll fail and intensify the same gift when they wish bad over your life. When you have pain in your body, He’s better than ibuprofen. When folk break your heart, He’s a heart fixer. When the job lays you off, He’s a provider. When momma is gone, He’s a comforter. When daddy isn’t around, He’ll send someone to fill the void. When the stress gets to be too much, he’s a burden bearer. When you want to give up, He’s a lifter of your spirit. When you can’t see where you’re going, He’s a light. When you’re hanging over your cliff of despair, He’s the rope. When you fall, He’s there to catch you. When friends won’t answer, He says call me. When folks let you down, He says count on me. When you’re tired, He says lean on me.

Who is this man? The bible says in Revelation 1:8 He is, “the Alpha and the Omega–the beginning and the end, the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come–the Almighty One.” But I say He is my first, my last, my beginning, my end, my all and all, the dryer of my tears, the mender of my heart and the finish to my start. He puts burning on the inside of me I never want to burn out. He makes me feel like running when no one is chasing me. He makes me feel like crying even when I happy. He makes me want to shout will I have no problems to report. He heals me when I’m sick, covers me when I feel like I’ve been left in the cold and protects me when the storms are raging. He never makes me worry about him coming home late because he is always there. I don’t have to worry about him being unfaithful because faith is in His name. Even when I am mean to him, he doesn’t leave. When I don’t speak to him for a while, he comes running when I say his name. He doesn’t even mind that I don’t talk to him before I go to sleep because he said He’ll be there when I wake up. Oh, this Man is just what I need when I feel like I’m at my breaking point. When I feel like I’ve fallen too far for him to reach me, He can still pull me up. He doesn’t judge me when I make mistakes because He said He’ll forgive me.

Ladies and Gentleman, I am pleased to introduce you to this Man. Many of you may know him and some of you may have even read His book because it is a best seller. No, he hasn’t been on any book tours because the book can speak for itself. No, he doesn’t give autographs, but He’ll write your name in His book if you believe in Him. No, He doesn’t answer questions, but He does answer prayers. No, he doesn’t have an email address, Facebook account, Twitter, or text but he is only a call away. No, he doesn’t have a limited supply of minutes to use for the month so you’ll never receive a busy signal. This Man! God, our Heavenly Father. Will you promise to love, honor, cherish and obey Him through sickness and in health for all the days of your life until death do you part?
