'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10


Dear Lord,


It is so sweet to trust in Jesus. Help me to take You at Your Word and rest upon Your promise of eternal life as I go about my day today. Help me to remember the amazing news of the Gospel throughout my day. Help me to set my mind on things above where Christ is seated, not on earthly things (Col 3:1-2). Help me to keep an eternal perspective as I do my daily tasks, work heartily for You, and fix my eyes on heaven. When I fix my eyes on heaven, I am fixing my eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith (Hebrews 12:2). Help me to live more fully in the moment, as I carry out my day in the light of eternity. Help me to press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:14) and to not get so caught up in the worldly cares that can so easily entangle me. Help me to see my sins, confess them and repent of them, and trust in Jesus. Help me to bring You glory in all that I do, say, and think. Give me the grace to be humble, gentle, and loving, like Jesus.

I praise You for my faith in Jesus. He is precious. He is my Supreme Treasure, my Savior, Lord, and Friend. He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The LORD is good to all, and His mercy is over all that He has made (Psalm 145:8-9). I have nothing to fear, past, present, or future because Jesus will be with me to the end and throughout all eternity. God loved me so much that He sent His beloved Son Jesus to die on the cross and save me from my sins and the eternal wrath to come. In three days, Jesus Christ rose again from the grave so that by grace through faith in Him, I may live forever in Him. AMEN! What a joy that truly is!


Give me the grace to love Jesus more. Give me the grace to share Jesus more. Give me the grace to praise Jesus more. Give me the grace to rejoice in Jesus more. Give me the grace to trust in Jesus more. Lord, in all things, I need Your grace.


All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

This I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

 

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

Just to take Him at His Word

Just to rest upon His promise

Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord"

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him

How I've proved Him o'er and o'er

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus

Oh, for grace to trust Him more

I'm so glad I learned to trust Him

Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend

And I know that He is with me

Will be with me to the end

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him

How I've proved Him o'er and o'er

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus

Oh, for grace to trust Him more – Louisa M.R. Stead
