My Savior is always there for me!!!

But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3 : 3


Good morning.



In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel sent his young son, Armand, off to school. Samuel told his son,“Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you.” He hugged and the boy ran off to school. Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the area. Samuel then grabbed his coat and headed for the schoolyard. When he reached the area, what he saw brought tears to his eyes. Armand’s school was a pile of debris. Other parents were standing around crying. Samuel found the place where Armand’s classroom used to be and began pulling a broken beam off the pile of rubble. He then grabbed a rock and put it to the side, and then grabbed another one. One of the parents looking on asked, “What are you doing?” “Digging for my son,” Samuel answered. The man then said, “You’re just going to make things worse! The building is unstable,” and tried to pull Samuel away from his work.Samuel set his jaw and kept working. As time wore on, one by one, the other parents left. Then a firefighter tried to pull Samuel away from the rubble. Samuel looked at him and said, “Won’t you help me?” The firefighter left and Samuel kept digging. All through the night and into the next day, Samuel continued digging. Suddenly he heard a faint cry. “Help! Help!” Then he heard a muffled voice, “Papa?” Samuel began to dig furiously. Finally he could see his son. “Come on out, son!” he said with relief. Samuel took him in his arms and Armand said, “papa, I did not worry because you told me that you’d always be there for me!”


How great the little boy's trust is! Remember the Lord who carves you in His palms knows all your pains, struggles, pleasures, desires and everything that even you couldn't know. I read "Jesus never attended a funeral service, instead He gave life to the dead" in 'The fourth dimension' book by Dr. Cho. That's true. There is nowhere in the Bible you could see Jesus didn't bring the dead back to live. Instead, for all our sins He Himself gave His own life and everything on the cross. We can trust Him all the time. Are you afraid of anything today? Your job, your family, your health, etc,... are more important for Him too. When Israelites turned their back to Him, the Lord was so compassionate and He Himself was not able to see His people suffering. Isaiah 59 : 1 says, "Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save." When troubles knock your door the next time, just speak out, "Hey, my Savior is always there for me. His hand is not too short to deliver me." When I listened to a video of Joyce Meyer I heard her saying, "It is much easier for me to cast everything to Him and to take rest, rather than carrying the tons of burden with me and holding on to them, seeking help from others and finally when everything drops, going to Him." He is the Alpha and Omega. He is the First and the Last. He is the Beginning and the Ending. Is it not easy for us to run to the one who has the key to all our problems, rather than running here and there in vain?
