No One Else.

As I awoke this morning, thoughts of many disappointments and discouragements started to fill my head. But God, being rich in mercy helped me turn once again to His goodness and His Word. He reminded me to turn to Him and His truth, THE Truth!

We all have our moments of weariness, but, then His truth comes through like a fresh wind and clears the fog that fills our minds sometimes, the fog that the enemy and our own wrong thinking that we allow to take hold.

As I sought Him this morning, He also brought this song to my heart and mind and I lifted up to Him:

Fernando Ortega’s “No One Else” that you can listen to here:

Ultimately, there is no one else besides Him that we should turn to and reply on that will always be there for us.

This doesn’t mean we don’t or shouldn’t seek wise counsel and encouragement from others, rather, it means, He’s the only one that is our constant and perfect source of counsel, refuge, strength, and more! He is the only one that will never leave or forsake us.

He helps us grow in the wisdom and knowledge of Him and provides the tools we need to live for Him, for His Kingdom and Glory, as we wrestle with the ups and downs of life.
So, in our times when the "fog" roles in, we need to turn once again to Him, turn to Him right away, as there is no one else besides Him Who will see us through any storm or good time in life.

A Prayer To The Lord:

Lord, I thank you that there is no one else besides you. You are my rock and fortress. You are my deliverer and strength. You are my fog lifter and the lifter of my head. You are my provider. You are the light unto my path and lamp unto my feet and I turn to you. Please help me by Your Holy Spirit turn to you as a first response instead of an afterthought, as I know the truth of Your Word no matter what the enemy or my own thinking tries to convince me of…I need to turn to you. Thank you for Who You are. Thank you for Your Word. Thank You for your love and care. Thank you for your provision and protection. Thank you for your new mercies today and every morning. Thank you for your Holy Spirit’s guidance and wisdom in my life! May You receive all the glory due your name! In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen.

Friend, as you wake up in the morning, may you remember and proclaim that there is no one else but you Lord. And, as you lie down to rest at night, may you remember and proclaim that there is no one else but you Lord.

In the valleys and mountain tops of life, turn to Him.

He is your all in all. May you be lifted up today by this remembrance.

You’re in my prayers and please keep me in yours.

In Christ Alone,

Your Brother and Servant in Christ,
