No, Never Alone!

9 Apr

God’s Word:  Matthew 7:26, 27,  Jesus said, “But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach.  When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”

Jesus’ Message to Me: (My interpretation of what Jesus is saying to me through these verses)

These words of Mine, in what you call the “Sermon on the Mount,” are given as a “prescription” for living a joyful life now and forever.  The purpose of this “prescription” is that you would take My words into your heart and put them into practice in your daily life. Only then will you realize the benefit of these action words I have given you.

Words are a vehicle to communicate from one heart to another.  I have shared My heart with you through these action words.  I chose My action words carefully to be sure and give you just the right “prescription” to help you live victorious.  But now it is up to you.  There is a big difference between reading My action words and actually taking the advice and making life-changes—putting them into action.

And to be sure the “prescription” is for you and only you—I have left you with more than mere action words. My Spirit dwells with the one who turns to Me in obedience and takes these action words to heart.  I will help you understand and put My teaching into practice in your life.  Oh no, I will never leave you alone. I’m there with you each step of the way. 

Jesus’ Question for Me: Will you take My “prescription” and let it bless both your daily life and your eternal life?

Jesus’ Promise to Me: You are not alone!  I am with you as your constant companion.

My Song to Jesus:   No, Never Alone   by Ludie D Pickett  1897

I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll,
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of my Savior,
Telling me still to fight on,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

The world’s fierce winds are blowing,
Temptation’s sharp and keen,
I have a peace in knowing
My Savior stands between—
He stands to shield me from danger,
When earthly friends are gone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

When in affliction’s valley
I’m treading the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
My cross when heavy to bear,
Though all around me is darkness,
Earthly joys all flown;
My Savior whispers His promise,
“I never will leave thee alone.”

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

He died for me on the mountain,
For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened the fountain,
The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He’s waiting in glory,
Seated upon His throne,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.
