Jesus be with you

From tired to great joy

I am here: today I am tired.

You are everything. You are holy and good.

Help me recognize Your kingdom.

Matt 18:3 (KJ2000) ” 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. ”

John 1:9 (KJ2000) ” 9 That was the true Light, that lights every man that comes into the world. ”


Heb 4:11-16 (KJ2000) ” 11 Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 12 For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not a high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Heb 4:7 (KJ2000) ” 7 Again, he limits a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said, Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. ”

John 6:37 (KJ2000) ” 37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and he that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. ”

John 6:65-69 (KJ2000) ” 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will you also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Am I being humble enough. I keep thinking that I don’t want to rely on God for drawing me near. I want to know how to do it so I can be in charge of it.
It doesn’t work that way. Jesus is God! ‘Help me have reverence, Jesus.’


[Jesus] Heb 5:7-8 (KJ2000) ” 7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;”


Heb 12:6-11 (KJ2000) ” 6 For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives. 7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not? 8 But if you be without chastisement, of which all are partakers, then are you illegitimate children, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh who corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11 Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them who are trained by it.”

Heb 12:22-29 (KJ2000) ” 22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel. 25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29 For our God is a consuming fire.”

reverence =G127 αἰδώς aidos (ai-doce’) n.
1. bashfulness
2. (towards men), modesty
3. (towards God) awe
[perhaps from G1 (as a negative particle) and G1492 (through the idea of downcast eyes)]
KJV: reverence, shamefacedness
Root(s): G1, G1492 (Mickelson’s Enhanced Strong’s Greek and Hebrew Dictionaries)


1Tim 2:8-9 (KJ2000) ” 8 I desire therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with decency and propriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

decency = aidos

Mark 4:39-41 (KJ2000) ” 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are you so fearful? how is it that you have no faith? 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

Feared = G5399 φοβέω phobeo (fob-eh’-o) v.

Matt 28:5-7 (KJ2000) ” 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not: for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there shall you see him: lo, I have told you.”

Sometimes meeting Jesus happens in the doing of His word.

Doing includes having revernce for Him and allowing His joy to permeate me.
How often I think not showing happiness is a defense. Somewhere I learned that I should not let people see me happy. Or if I am working hard enough I should look sad.

Why can’t I be happy to work hard.

‘Praise you Jesus for rising and conquering everything that leads away from You. I do fear Your awesome power. I am very tiny and weak. You have the power of life and death. You can end my eternal life. This is very scary. Your will be done. I trust you. I have great joy in and about you. Thank you for opening my eyes just a little more to Your nearness.”
