All That We Need, Jesus Is

What is your greatest area of need today?

My heart is hurting deeply for so many who have faced heartbreak and tragedy over the past several weeks. People who have experienced devastating losses or received difficult news or are facing tremendous health challenges. And it is hard because I cannot be physically present with all of these people at once. Nor can I heal their hearts or fix their problems or tell them what they most need to do.

But here is the hope… I know the One who can. Jesus.

He is eternal. Unchanging and unbound by time. Ever-present and the provider of all that we need.

And there is incredible comfort to be found in these truths if we truly allow our souls the time to sit with them. To sit with Him.

Because there isn’t a single day on our timeline that Jesus is not there. He is the One who was and is and is to come. And He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Revelation 1:8; Hebrews 13:8) As we stand in this day, as we look to tomorrow, as we consider eternity, He is there. I AM is there. He is here. (Exodus 3:14; John 8:58; Matthew 28:20)

And He has told us exactly who He is. He has said…

I am the Bread of Life. (John 6:35, 48, 51)

I am the Light of the World. (John 8:12, 9:5)

I am the Door of the Sheep. (John 10:7-9)

I am the Good Shepherd. (John 10:11,14)

I am the Resurrection and the Life. (John 11:25)

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (John 14:6)

I am the True Vine. (John 15:1-17)

And He is all of these things every single day, now and forever.

He is every day our Bread who sustains and nourishes us.

He is every day our Light who outshines the darkness and step-by-step guides us, within us and around us.

He is every day the Door where we find welcome and refuge and the way to eternal life.

He is every day our Good Shepherd who leads us through the valleys and over the mountains and restores our souls. (Psalm 23)

He is every day the Resurrection and the Life. The One who resurrects hearts to new life and can resurrect our hope, peace, and joy.

He is every day the Truth we need to live for Him as we are shaped more and more like Him.

He is every day the Vine we can abide in as we draw strength and produce good fruit.

All that we need, He is. Every day.

What truth about I AM do you need to sit with today? Who do you need to thank Him for being in your life? Jesus didn’t tell us who He was and forever is for us to simply read over His words, maybe memorize them, and then go about our days. His words are LIFE and HOPE and SUSTENANCE.

What do you need today, friend? Look to Him. Sit with Him. I AM is with you.

Love & Prayers,
