CLING TO JESUS

Joshua 23:8

New American Standard Bible

“But you are to cling to the LORD your God, as you have done to this day.

***

King James Bible

But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.

***

Holman Christian Standard Bible

Instead, remain faithful to the LORD your God, as you have done to this day.”

 ***

 

 Cling:

: to hold onto something or someone very tightly

: to stay very close to someone for emotional support, protection, etc.

: to stick to something or someone

Do not be anxious about anything.

Instead,

in every situation,

through prayer and petition

with thanksgiving,

tell your requests to God. (Phil 4:6)

No anxiety ought to be found in a believer.

Great, many and varied may be our trials,

our afflictions, our difficulties,

and yet there should be no anxiety under any circumstances,

because we have a Father in Heaven who is Almighty,

who loves His children as He loves His only-begotten Son,

and whose very joy and delight it is to succor

and help them at all times and under all circumstances.

We should attend to the Word,

***

Philippians 4:6

“In nothing be anxious,

but in everything by prayer and supplication with

thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

“In everything,”

that is not merely when the house is on fire,

not merely when the beloved wife

and children are on the brink of the grave,

but in the smallest matters of life,

bring everything before God,

the little things,

the very little things,

what the world calls trifling things—everything—living in holy communion with our

Heavenly Father,

and with our precious Lord Jesus

all day long.

And when we awake at night,

by a kind of spiritual instinct again turning to Him,

and speaking to Him,

bringing our various little matters before Him in the sleepless night,

the difficulties in connection with the family,

our trade, our profession.

Whatever tries us in any way,

speak to the Lord about it.

“By prayer and supplication,” …with earnestness,

with perseverance,

going on and waiting,

waiting, waiting on God.

“With thanksgiving.”

We should at all times lay a good foundation with thanksgiving.

If everything else were wanting,

this is always present,

that He has saved us from hell.

Then, that He has given us His Holy Word—His Son, His choicest gift—and the Holy Spirit.

Therefore we have abundant reason for thanksgiving.

O let us aim at this!

 

“And the peace of God

which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts and minds

in Christ Jesus.”

And this is so great a blessing,

so real a blessing,

so precious a blessing,

that it must be known experimentally to be entered into,

for it passeth understanding.

O let us lay these things to heart,

and the result will be,

if we habitually walk in this spirit,

we shall far more abundantly glorify God,

than as yet we have done.

—George Mueller, in Life of Trust

King James Bible

Acts 11:23

Who, when he came,

and had seen the grace of God,

was glad, and exhorted them all,

that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

Twice or thrice a day,

look to see if your heart is not disquieted about something;

and if you find that it is,

take care forthwith to restore it to calm.

—Francis De Sales

Rom 10:9-10

That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,

you shall be saved.

For with the heart man believes unto righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

Rom 10:13

For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved!

A simple prayer from your heart to make Jesus your Savior:

Lord, I know that I’m a sinner-

I believe that Jesus Christ died in my place and paid for all my sins-

Save me now and make me Your child.

Amen.

The day you encounter Jesus

is your last day alone!
