Cling to Him

“Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me” (Luke 7:23).  It was a hard moment for John the Baptist.  In prison.  Confused.  Life had taken an unexpected turn.  He sent his questions to Jesus.  Jesus sent back this encouragement, “do not fall away because what I do is not what you expected”.  Hard times often take us by suprise.  In them, we either turn away from God or turn toward Him.  Part of the equation for prayer is a deep trust in God’s goodness and wisdom.  This morning in worship, I will teach that Jesus is the light of the world (John 8).  A guiding light.  When we pray, “Thy will be done”, we are surrendering our dreams and clinging to Him with faith-born confidence that God knows the right path for us.  Even when it is painful or difficult.  “Blessed is the man/woman who does not fall away.”
