Dearly beloved, Those of you who are walking with Jesus are a blessed man/ a blessed woman! How great a joy it is when He is being with us and we are being with Him, isn’t it? There will be problems, struggles, needs, oppressions in the life we are living in. We are living only in such a world. Even though, we pass through them, what is the greatest joy we have? The greatest joy is this: “Jesus is with me”! Look, there is a wonderful verse written in Deuteronomy 4:7, “For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?” “We have God so near to us!” – This is the meaning of the verse! God who created the heaven and the Earth! – Where is He? “He is somewhere high up in the heaven seated on His throne; He is in heaven!” Few think like that. Some think, “He is in church When we go to church every Sunday, we get to worship Him and feel His presence!” Some like that. Do you know, Jesus doesn’t have any Holy place that you must seek Him here or seek Him there? He is the God who is with us; abides in us; the one who is near to us. “What great nation is there that has God so near to it?” None can tell like this! It’s only our blessing! “Jesus is within me. He is with me. He comes with me when I’m going to my school, If I go to work, He comes with me, He comes with me even if I go to a shop! He is with me while I travel! He is near to us! He is always with me!” Do you feel like this? – It is the greatest joy! I travel to many places for the sake of ministry and I’ve never felt lonely. “Jesus is with me; He and I are travelling; He and I are doing this ministry together. He is always with me.” – We’ve God so near to us. Whenever you call upon Him and accept Him saying, “Jesus, You must be with me; You must be with me as a Father, as a Redeemer, as God!” He shall come along with You. He has promised us saying, “I shall not leave you nor forsake you!” So, He is near to us. Jesus is nearer than your breath which is so united with you; Please feel this! Right now, Jesus is with you, isn’t it? Are you thinking that you’re alone? No. Jesus is always with you.
Give Him thanks! “Thank You God for you’re always with me! Thank You for always being near to me! How great a blessing is it, God! I thank You!” Praise Him every minute saying this. You can feel His presence. You can feel that He is being with you always! – This is the greatest joy! Do you have this joy?
Or are you forgetting it often? You should never forget it. When you think about Him and give Him praises every day, try to tell Him, “Thank You for being with me, Father! You’ve taken me as Your son/ Your daughter! You shall not depart from me! You’re always with me! I’ve You near to me! I’m a blessed man/ a blessed woman! Jesus, The King I give You thanks” and there shall be a great joy filling your heart. Will you say? Will you look at God and say? “Father, You’re always with me. You’re abiding in me; I’ve You near to me; You’re within me. You’re always walking with me. I thank You for Your love for me, Father. I praise You for You are always near to me. Thank You for Your presence. I thank You for the joy. You’ll be with me and guide me throughout this day. I give you praise and thank You Father thinking, You’ll be with me, abide in me, I’ll have you near to me and have You within me, guiding me all through my life! Thank You, Father. I thank You Jesus, the King! In Jesus’ name, Amen. Amen.”
