King David was hounded by Saul. The prophet Elijah was threatened by Jezebel. Paul was harmed by Alexander the metalworker. Even Jesus was betrayed by Judas. Has one person ruined your joy? Is there someone’s name that when you hear it, you feel defeated, worried, and ruined?
Can one person ruin our life? Not unless we forget that One Person stands in the gap for us—Jesus Christ. He does not want your life to come to ruin! Praise the Lord.
I am excited, blessed and comforted to know that my Jesus, my Friend, my Saviour stands in the gap on my behalf to keep me from being ruined. We can only be ruined if we give in to the devil and reject the Lord's salvation.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
So, what did God do so that we would not be ruined by the devil?
"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
Jesus wants us to walk in His power and strength here and now. "I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit." (Amos 9:14)
Jesus has a way of entering into our lives with the purpose of rebuilding what has been destroyed. He restores what is ruined. Today, you may feel ruined, defeated and depressed. Friend, please hear me. Jesus wants to keep you from being emotionally ruined now. He wants to restore your emotional heartbreak.
Jesus’ message of restoration, life more abundant, eternal life, is going out right where He wants it to go. Will you allow the Words of Jesus, the love of Jesus, to reach deep into your broken heart?
Dear child of God, you cannot be ruined! You are God's property
Whatever your pain or heartbreak, Jesus will use it to shape you and train you to effectively serve Him in helping others. Now, pick yourself up and in the power and love of Jesus, let's face another day!
When a supernatural force, such as the devil, makes a punching bag out of you, and ruins your day, there is only One who is powerful enough to deliver you—Jesus Christ. Jesus delivers us from an old, tattered punching bag to a child of the King, dressed in royalty.
Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You for holding us up, when we cannot stand. Thank You for picking us up when we are down. In Jesus' name, AMEN!
