Hymn 85, “The Savior With Me” (1st and last)

 

Numbers 10:29 / Mark 4:35, tells about a journey.  These days our journey is of our heart.  God is concerned about our heart - not our actual heart, but the center of our being for those things that are good for us and for the Kingdom of serving Him.  Uplift Jesus constantly. 

Exodus, God gave a message to Moses and asked Moses to show you his way.  God said, “My presence will go with you.”  Moses said carry us not up hence (if your presence doesn’t go with us, don’t carry us up there).  Wanting for “me, myself and I” is a dangerous road. 

Psalms 23, we cannot go through the valley alone.  The disciples took Jesus in a boat.  He is still the same (yesterday, today and forever).  Paul wrote “Christ in you – the hope of Glory.”  The disciples took Jesus on the water (Jesus remains the same).  They took Him Just as He was. 

Genesis – “Let Us make man in Our Own image.”  This is heart business. 

Psalms 17, last verse…I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness. 

Luke 2, when Mary and Joseph took their son to perform a ceremony, they were on their way home.  Mary and Joseph supposed that Jesus was in the midst of them.  That part was a little dangerous…“supposedly”.  We cannot suppose He is with us.  Either He is or He is not (in our lives).  If we go to a lost eternity, we take the blame.  Could we suppose He is with us and He’s not?  What part does He have in our hearts?  We shouldn’t use Jesus for our “Emergency Exit.”  He needs to be our Lord, King…and our complete all. 

Storms come because the master is not at helm.  We need to get to the source of all our problems.  When He arrives, when we see Him, we will be like Him. 

Revelations, Jesus knocks on the door and He will sleep with us (give us peace).  We are only loaned (for this life).
