“Father, Into your care I commit my spirit.” ~ Jesus

At the darkest moment of anguish, bearing the signs of despair, loneliness, and grief… Jesus, by faith, committed what was most precious about Him into the care of our Heavenly Father.

He knew no matter the circumstance, no matter how dark life ‘seemed’ at the moment, Our God is Faithful.

In these moments, words are few. Grief is a silencing entity that takes almost all expression away. The only defense we have against it is our faith in ‘The Sovereign and Holy God who is there.’

As Christ took His final breath and entered death on our behalf, it was His faith in the ‘God who is there’ the sustained Him.

I pray you have this confidence in you that was also in Christ at His moment of crisis. I pray you will turn to Him… The God who is there.

Choose wisely…

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalms 46:10)
