Cling To Jesus

My soul stays close to you. Your right hand holds me up. (Psalm 63:8)

Hold fast to God’s promises today.

It’s easy to lose sight of what’s truly important when you’re busy or facing difficult circumstances.

We can sometimes be so occupied putting out fires in various areas of our lives that we completely forget about Jesus.

But amazingly, when we look to Jesus and meditate on the goodness of God, our problems seem to melt away.

You can toil all night like Simon Peter and catch nothing. But once you have Jesus on board, you’ll have so much blessings coming in that your nets and boat wouldn’t be able to contain them. (Luke 5:1-10)

So cling to Jesus today, like a branch connects to a vine. For it’s only when you’re connected to the true Vine that His life can flow through you.

Precious child of God. Know that Your dreams and destiny have been laid out before you. Just follow His lead and you’ll be safe.

Rejoice and take refuge under the shelter of His wings. Think of His loving kindness and bless His name with your lips.

Stay close to Jesus, and He’ll stay close to you.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Action Steps:

Keep Jesus and His finished work in your mind and heart as you go about your day.

It helps to make this a habit by using daily events / emotions as triggers.

e.g.


When someone cuts you off in traffic and you can feel your anger rising, think of Jesus and how he forgave the very people who nailed Him to the Cross. In fact, He gave His life for these very people so that they may live eternally in God’s love.

Realize also, that Jesus later rose from the dead. For nothing can keep Him down.

There’s no need to repay evil for evil anymore because God is with you. And He’ll put you as the head and not the tail regardless of how others in the world may try to hold you down.


When your body’s feeling unwell, remember how Jesus was tortured that you may be set free. For by His stripes, we were healed!


When you’re worried about how you’re going to pay the bills this month, remember how Jesus provided for thousands who were hungry with just five loaves and two small fish.

Whatever you’re facing today, Jesus is the answer!

Psalm 63:1-8

God, you are my God.

I will earnestly seek you.

My soul thirsts for you.

My flesh longs for you,

in a dry and weary land, where there is no water.

So I have seen you in the sanctuary,

watching your power and your glory.

Because your loving kindness is better than life,

my lips shall praise you.

So I will bless you while I live.

I will lift up my hands in your name.

My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest food.

My mouth shall praise you with joyful lips,

when I remember you on my bed,

and think about you in the night watches.

For you have been my help.

I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.

My soul stays close to you.

Your right hand holds me up.

 
Luke 5:1-10

Now while the multitude pressed on him and heard the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret. He saw two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets. He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.”

Simon answered him, “Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net.” When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking. They beckoned to their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. They came, and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord.” For he was amazed, and all who were with him, at the catch of fish which they had caught; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.
