On the job ….

February 26, 2014

“He’s there from now to eternity to save everyone who comes to God through him, always on the job to speak up for them.” Hebrews 7:25 The Message

There is no one else like Him. There is no one else like Jesus, who has been through everything you’ve ever experienced in your life .. and still .. HE is on the job for your life. HE hasn’t let up one moment when it comes to your life. Everything you are dealing with today .. Jesus is dealing with on your behalf. HE isn’t confused over your circumstances .. which way you should go .. or what you should do next. HE is right there praying for you .. even at this moment. HE isn’t overwhelmed by anyone or anything. There isn’t one moment’s doubt in Jesus’s mind about your life. HE is a restorer .. repairer .. comforter .. convicter .. reconciler .. shield .. defender .. friend .. forgiver .. true-stronghold .. grace-n-truth .. and absolute Lord over everything in your life. There is nothing you can do to make Jesus pray any harder or hear any clearer. Your actions don’t win his attention and your performance doesn’t earn his affection. You’ll find him at the darkest places in your heart .. the loneliest places .. and even in all the crowded parts of your life. He ‘s there with all the time and space you need. He’s there with the one love that mends .. heals .. and brings joy. He’s there for the crucified-risen fact that HE loves you and will never give up on you. HE hears the inaudible words of your heart. HE knows exactly what and how to speak up on your behalf. The Lord of All .. the King of Kings .. has time for you today .. and everything you bring him. HE is the righter of wrongs and the way ahead for your life. His life is the only foundation to begin upon .. build upon .. and believe upon. Whatever else is in front of your life today .. Jesus is already there. It only takes a moment …

“Going through the motions doesn’t please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love don’t for a moment escape God’s notice.” Psalm 51:16-17 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
