Scripture

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" - Galatians 2:20

by Murray Hewitt.

A bruised reed he will not break, a smoldering flax he will not snuff out. Is. 42:3

If we are like a bruised reed – weak, damaged by life’s circumstances, vulnerable, easily breakable, easy to bend, – Jesus is there to lift us up, heal us, bring life to us, set us free and strengthen us. His plans for us are good, to give us a future and a hope, always to build us up. That doesn’t mean we won’t go through hard times but he is always there, encouraging us to ask him for help to look to Him, trust and believe Him. As we do he will help. In the same way he will never snuff us out or let us be snuffed out. He has promised to finish the work he began and he will do that on the final day, when we see him face to face. Rest assured, it is against God’s nature to start something and not complete it. God is not a quitter. He who has begun a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. Even if we are unfaithful he is faithful to us because he can’t deny his nature, his commitment to us to keep working in us until he sees us, His children face to face. So if your feeling a bit bruised or your light is not burning brightly, Jesus is the one to ask to heal your bruises and fill you with his Spirit (present continuous tense) so that you shine brightly with love joy and peace and others see Jesus in you.

Blessings,

Have a great day,

Murray.
