Verse of the Day


"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."

~Psalm 139:7-10

Jesus Will Meet You There

On one of his most recent CDs, Steven Curtis Chapman has a song titled, Jesus Will Meet You There. The lyrics are powerful and I want to share them with you today:

When you think you've hit the bottom
and the bottom gives way
and you fall into a darkness
no words can explain
and you don't know how you'll make it out alive
Jesus will meet you there.

When the doctor says, "I'm sorry,
we don't know what else to do."
and you're looking at your family
wondering how they'll make it through...
Whatever road this life takes you down,
Jesus will meet you there.

He knows the way to wherever you are
He knows the way to the depths of your heart
He knows the way cause he's already been
where you're going
Jesus will meet you there.

What a beautiful picture that has been penned in this song. Oh how I love the thought that Jesus comes to us when we can't seem to find our way to Him. In our moments of despair, Jesus is there. In those moments, where we can't seem to find Him, He finds us. We just have to ask Him to come meet us. He knows the way to where you are today. And, all you have to do is ask Him to come and He will sit beside you and love you through whatever you are going through.

I don't know if you have ever been in a place of utter despair. If you have, then I know you have felt lost, confused, scared and there were probably pieces of the experience that were indescribable to those who were trying to help you. If you are there now, then I urge you to invite Jesus to meet you there. You don't even have to explain to Him where you are because He already knows and He is actually already there. He knows what you are feeling even when you can't explain it. He knows the depths of your heart and He knows how to pull you from that dark place. You only need to hold on and focus on Him as He meets you where you are and pulls you out of that pit.

Whether you have or have not ever experienced deep despair, I pray that everyone would be conscientious and loving of people who are. If you have a friend or loved one who is going through a deep despair, then pray for them and love them as they are letting Jesus heal them. Encourage them to keep their eyes on the Lord and help them cling to the only One who truly knows the depths of their heart and the way to bring them out their pit.

No matter what you are struggling with today, ask Jesus to meet you there!


Memorize this verse today:

"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."
~Psalm 139:7-10
