The right hand of the LORD is exalted:
the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
I shall not die, but live,
and declare the works of the LORD.
Psalm 118, 17f.
Yes, the right hand of the LORD is lifted up and He works with power! Otherwise I would have died long ago. But I am alive, I am still alive! And why? What for? What is my goal, what is the reason for which I live?
I want to praise Him and thank Him. That is a purpose in life. And the other: How can other people learn about the grace and love of God in Jesus if I do not tell and show them?
I must announce the great deeds of the Lord, that is the reason of my life.
For this I do not need to become cramped or fanatical. I can enjoy all the beautiful things in life here. But I must not become an egoist. So according to the motto: The main thing is that I am well! – No, God cannot use such people in His Kingdom.
Because I proclaim Jesus’ love, because I proclaim Him, therefore the Lord of the world is quite evil. He wants to destroy me if he could. But Jesus Himself holds me in His strong hand. The right hand of the Lord is exalted, it works with power! – The enemy rages and rages, and many things are broken, but he cannot win. He scatters many bad rumors and people speak badly of me. I cannot defend myself, but in Him I find security. The right hand of the Lord works with power!
Even if I have become old and frail, I will not die. For He wants to keep me alive so that I may proclaim His name. The right hand of the LORD works with power!
I could quickly escape everything if I could forget Jesus. Then the enemy would give rest. But how could I forget the one who loves me so much?
Oh my child, come and salvage yourself in the heart of the Lord Jesus! He has comfort and wound balm for the aching heart. He has words of love, affection, share. HE, our Lord, is love in person. Entrust yourself to Him.
Thank You Jesus that I have found You! I am well with You, for Your comfort refreshes my soul! Even if everything falls into pieces, You are still there and hold me tight. Yes, with You I am safe and secure. Thank You!
