For decades, I felt lonely and all alone. I was miserable. I had many people in my life. But still I felt that way. No more! I have been on the road for Jesus for several years now and have no social and entertainment life as I devote myself to the Lord and ministry 24-7. To top it off, I face regular rejection by numerous people many of whom are Christians because of my total devotion to the Lord, my refusal to compromise the truth of what His Bible teaches us, and my willingness to forsake all for Him. I have every reason to feel all alone and miserable, don’t you think?
I won’t deny that at times the rejection hurts terribly and how on my own I am can be incredibly hard on my flesh, but I have never in my life experienced more love, joy, hope, peace, and fulfillment. How is this possible?
I have learned to look to Him for everything, and He provides it all. And when I forget and start looking elsewhere, He reminds me and leads me right back to Himself! He is my all and all. As the Bible says, He is my “portion forever.”
I haven’t had the easiest life. It’s been pretty challenging in fact. But my everlasting “portion” is Jesus. And I have an indescribably wonderful joyful passionate deep and intimate loving relationship with Him as Lord that will endure FOREVER that far surpasses any earthly pleasures I could possibly have.
Jesus is my first and forever and perfect amazing, amazing LOVE! Is He yours?
Oh God, I pray this beautiful, beautiful relationship you have given me with you would be an inspiration beyond measure to others and that you through this phenomenal testimony you have given me all by your grace and for your glory alone would bring more people into your forever Kingdom and draw those already in it into an unfathomably beautiful and fulfilling personal, ever deeper relationship with you, oh God, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Savior of the world, heavenly Father, YES! Thank you, oh Lord, thank you so much! Amen!
“My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26
