BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS

WHO do you need today? WHAT do you need today? There is NOTHING He can't do! No problem too large for Him to handle, no need too small for Him to take care of, no cup too big for Him to fill. Have confidence in Him and have confidence, God-confidence, that you can do anything with Him according to His purpose for you!


Without Him, we are nothing. With Him, we are in need of nothing.
John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

Have you tabernacled with Him today?
James 4:8 "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."

Have you surrendered your desires for the treasures He has waiting for you?
Mark 10:21 "Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, 'One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.'


Have you asked Him for help lately or are you trying to do this thing on your own?
John 15:7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you."

Does it seem that what you are facing is just too difficult to bear?
2 Corinthians 4:17 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory...,"

1 Corinthians 10:13
"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."

James 1:12
"Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."


Do you believe Him and His promises?
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Do you doubt His love for you?
John 14:23
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

1 Timothy 1:14
And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.


Whatever it is that is distancing you from Him, whatever it is that is weighing heavily upon your mind and heart, whatever you think you are incapable of doing.... Christ Jesus is the bridge. Give it all to Him. Leave it at His feet. He sees all things from the end to the beginning. He is your strength. He has the answers.


Matthew 14:27
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”



Will you put Him in the drivers' seat? You won't regret it!
