    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you' N...

Lean On Me

  • He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.' 2 Corinthians 12:9 WEB

    So many times in my life, I have had to face problems that I did not understand, or know the answer to. It seemed that God would arrange situations where there was no one else to turn to for the answer but Him. It was just me once again facing some complex problem with one to ask about it. This was before the Internet became available, and people called me for answers, that I sometimes did not have.

    Of course, there would always be pressure to fix the problem and sometimes when I had exhausted all of my abilities and ran out of ideas, panic would start rising inside me. Finally I would take a break, calm down, walk outside and pray for a few minutes. Then the answer would come and the problem was resolved. Jobs where I spent some time in prayer first, often came off without a hitch, but men hate asking for directions, and it was the times that I began growing cocky and felt like I could handle it that always got me into trouble. Paul said that when he was weak, he was actually strong.

    I can see now that God was saying: 'Lean on Me.' He intentionally put me in high pressure situations with no one to turn to but Him, and He always had the answer. We never walk alone as a Christian. We are to be dependent on the Lord every step of the way.

    God lives inside of us and wants to be a part of our lives, but often we get too busy to inquire of Him though He is right there. Jesus said: 'But when they deliver you up, don't be anxious how or what you will say, for it will be given you in that hour what you will say. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you' (Matthew 10:19).

    This verse reveals a few things:

    1) The Spirit of our Father lives inside of us.

    2) 'It will be given you in that hour' is the answer that we need.

    3) We should not be anxious. It actually can cause us to be spiritually deaf. We must calm ourselves and get quiet to hear that still, small, voice.

    Lean on God for the answer, He has it. Include Him in your day. While you look everywhere else and exhaust all of your ideas, He is there patiently waiting for you to ask. The Holy Spirit that helped create the universe is available and can help you with this if you will only take the time to ask.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I lean on You! Teach me Lord what I don't know. Help me to see the bigger picture. Walk with me and talk with me today. I want more of Your presence in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

When I walk with you Lord, it's such a wonderful feeling.  I thank you for your compassion and kindness but most of all for the sacrifice you have done to save me from sin; without you in my life, it would mean nothing.  I am blessed and thanful for everything!  To the Glory of God the Father, Amen!

Lord Thank you for giving Pastor Dion this message today. I have to have a very serious and life changing talk with my son on Monday. Im waiting until after Easter because I know his usual negative and verbal actions when have tried to have conversations with him. I refuse to let him hinder this very special weekend for me and my grandson. I will be referring to the verse and message today so that it isn't my words but Gods. My words don't work with him. I will be praying until then. Im giving this to God. May the good Lord bless and keep you all today. Rebecca

Praying for you and your family, Rebecca! That sounds like a good idea to wait until after Easter and perhaps somewhere away from your grandson if your son is going to possibly react negatively. May the Holy Spirit work on his heart to truly hear your words.
