-THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.(He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him–not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake. Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me-
I usually keep a notebook at my nightstand, because the Holy Spirit likes to talk to me…while I’m asleep!! Lol
So anyway…I was going through one of my old Notebooks and I found this Lifeguard analogy that I had written about Jesus. It was during the latter part of 2013…and I felt as if I was going under…’BUT GOD’ was right beside me, preserving me and leading me to still waters!!
Here’s My Analogy…
When We go swimming, it is important to know if the lifeguard is on duty and where he is seated…BUT Jesus is our LifeGuard and He is always on duty!! It is So important for Us to know His location, before We step out into the waters of Life. We need to know that Jesus is seated at the Right Hand of God, the Father…with His watchful eye on Us, as He intercedes for Us.
Satan is also watching and lurking about…trying to lure Us out into the deep waters, where We are no longer able to sense Our footing. There, he can stir up the wind and the waves of life and attempt to pull Us under…but if We keep Our eyes on Our Lifeguard…We’ll see that He’s right there beside Us, because He is concerned about Our safety and Our survival. He swims alongside of Us…even when We’ve wandered too far out!!
He will never leave Us nor forsake Us!!
So when the strong currents of life’s waters attempt to overwhelm You and You are left flailing Your arms…gasping for air…and trying to keep Your head above the water, Remember that YOUR LifeGuard is an excellent swimmer…And He adores You…You have special favor with Jesus, So You can just throw Your arms around Him…and You can lean into Him…knowing that He WILL preserve Your Life.
Get to KNOW Your LifeGuard on a first-name basis…Call on Him!!
His Name is Jesus!!
When We know Him…and have an intimate, personal relationship with Him…We learn to trust Him and We believe His Word when He says that He is Our Firm foundation…and if We will become ‘sure-footed’…in Him…We can Make it to the Shores of Heaven!!
Because Jesus is Our Salvation…We know that all the devil’s wicked schemes and evil plots that he has set-up against Us…in order to destroy Our Lives…They are ALL…already under Jesus’ feet.
He will Command the Winds and The Waves and make them behave and He will put that roaring lion (Satan) back in his cage.
Until Tomorrow…Get ready for another ‘Brain Teaser.’
God Loves You and So Do I!!
Don’t forget to Be a Blessing…
