With Us In All Things

For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything. 1 Thessalonians 1:8

Do you need the Lord today? According to Paul we don't need anything. Uh, right, did you just read over a couple of little words like I did? Paul told his congregation in Thessaloniki that he did not need to say anything about their faith which had gone out into the region. That flesh is always trying to pull a fast one on us, even to the point of hiding a couple of important words from God's word. When I look to the word it is because I need God always, both the eternal always and the every moment always.

It takes but a moment for the flesh to get in a thought or two of a sinful nature. We can hardly pick up a book or click on a website without some temptation presenting itself as the next thing to do. Every moment of each day we need our Lord Jesus with us in all things. Never do we want to hear our Lord tell us, "I'll just give you a moment alone."

A moment without Jesus is a moment in perdition. He is with us in all things!
