The other morning when I was praying, I had this beautiful vision in my mind. I saw the Lord carrying someone on His back. I couldn’t see the Lord’s face or any details of what He looked like but I knew it was Him. He seemed very tall and He had someone on His back, someone who was in total distress and suffering. That person was hanging on by a thread. That thread was Jesus. Jesus was his last hope, his last rescue, his last chance. The man on the back was tired, overwhelmed and falling apart. However, the Lord was carrying Him. The man might not have been aware of it but Jesus was holding him. I loved that vision and it brought me to tears. The Lord carries us when no one can do anything for us. When we put our lives in His hands, He holds us in the palm of His hand and takes care of us. Today you might be like that man who has nothing left and who is weary and exhausted. You might be feeling depleted and depressed. I am here to tell you that the Lord will carry you. The Lord is hugging you right now with love straight from Heaven. The Lord is holding you and He is not going to let go. The Lord is with you, smiling at you and wiping down your tears. You are in great company. All is not lost. The Lord of all is going to bless you and to get you out of your misery. Hold on to Him. Let Him be your hope and your solution. He will carry you and bless you abundantly.
When hope seems like a foreign concept, you have to remember that Jesus is not a stranger and that He is with you and around you at all times. He never stops looking over you and taking care of you and your life. He is concerned about you and He wants you to have the best life ever. Life without Him is very difficult. He never leaves your life and that is something you might need to be reminded of today. No matter how tough things are, Jesus is tougher and He is present. You are held by the most High. He is carrying you as we speak. He has you on His back and He is taking you from place to place. You might be the lost man in my vision. You might be completely desperate and completely broken but you are cared for more than you know. God is on the move in your life and He is taking you with Him. You are not going to stay in this place of despair and fear. You are going to reach a new destination and a new level of peace, joy and hope. Hold on to the promises of the Lord. Know that He has you in the palm of his hand and He is not letting go. You are going to make it and the Lord will make sure of it. Your pain and suffering today can’t compare to the joy that is coming. You will get there. You are on your way there and Jesus is the One who is facilitating your journey.
You are on a great journey because you have the best companion there is. Sometimes when I am traveling, I pay attention to what’s around me. I see beautiful landscapes and great scenery. Sometimes I see ugly scenes. I witness poverty and lack and I see pain on my journey. I see the good, the bad and the ugly but one thing for sure is that I am with the Lord and my environment and what I see don’t define my destiny and they don’t define how I feel. They could but I work hard to not let them affect me. Jesus is the most important part of what’s around me. His presence is sublime and it matters more than the adversity and the opposition. After the vision during prayer, I told myself that I will keep on fixing my eyes on the One who has me on His back. I will pay more attention to Him and I will celebrate His love and His care for me. He carries me. Even in the valley of the shadow of death He carries me. He carries me and He protects me. I shouldn’t fear what I see. I shouldn’t get scared of what’s in front of me because Jesus carries me. He carries you as well and He will keep you safe. Stay strong and stay in faith. You are blessed. You are loved and you are carried by the One who can do all things. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
