God is my Life


His grace is what sustains me. I sure am in need of Him every second of every minute; every minute of every hour; every hour of every day; every day of every month and every month of every year. Of a truth, like Jesus said, “we can do nothing without Him. [John 15:5]

It is healthy to still be able to bleed. It keeps ones heart in check. It reminds one he is still human, pliable and reachable. Like we’ve been sharing on our series, “Choose Life,” It is said that during the Roman Triumph, in which a great hero was recognized by a procession through the city, generally for a military victory, a slave was positioned behind them, whispering in their ear:

"Memento mori," roughly speaking 'Remember that thou art a man.'

Just how truly ingenious they were. They knew something we all need to know. They knew something about the human nature. We all can benefit from practicing same, whispering to ourselves,
“Remember thou art a man. You are not sufficient in yourself. You need a power (person) greater than you. You need God in your life, to make sense of it all.”
And, the psalmist so beautifully corroborates this, by telling us,
“If the Lord does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless; if the Lord does not protect the city, it does no good for the sentries to stand guard. It is useless to work so hard for a living, getting up early and going to bed late. For the Lord provides for those he loves, while they are asleep.” (Psalm 127:1-2, GNT)
I know where my help comes from. It does not come from my place of work; my connections; my networks; my bank account; my family ties, etc. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. He will not let me fall. He stands watch over me and my life 24/7. His insurance is complete, all round protection. I need not fear anything, person or authority. The Lord protects me from all danger. He keeps me safe. He protects my coming in and my going out now and forever. [Psalm 121] 

I treasure my time in the word and prayer every day. I treasure building my faith praying in the Holy Spirit. I treasure allowing the Holy Spirit help my infirmity in the place of prayer. I treasure speaking mysteries to God, in the place of prayer. [Jude 1:20; Romans 8:26; 1 Corinthians 14:2] I stay connected to my SOURCE. He is the difference maker in my life. If the story of my life could be said in two words, it will be, “But God.”
