Defender and Friend

In John 17:15, Jesus prays for us.  “I do not ask you to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.”  Some temptation/trial is an unavoidable part of life, but that being lead into temptation, into it’s power, into it’s captivity is not!  When difficult moments come (and they do), we need Him more than ever.  We need Him to FIGHT for us!  Jesus BELIEVED that the God of the Universe was willing to come and give protection and fire power in our weakest moments.  He knew also that we have to ask! Even when we do not deserve His help (we Never do)  “Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, in Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail: Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end, our Maker, DEFENDER, Redeemer and FRIEND.” (Robert Grant)  Today I hope you will ask Him (really ask Him) to Deliver us!
