Romans 10:9 if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

You know, it doesn’t take a lot to believe in Jesus. I mean, we have so much given to us so that we can believe. In fact we have everything that we need; we just have to take that step forward.

This verse tells us that we need to declare with our own mouths that Jesus is Lord. I cannot say it for you, you must say it for yourself.

God wants each of us to have a personal relationship with Him and that starts with us taking that first step of saying it with our mouths. God wants to be in our lives, but we must invite Him in by admitting to the truth.

Titus 1:2 in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,

God promised us eternal life right from the beginning. He designed everything for us so that we could know Him and trust in Him. He has given us every reason to believe His promises; promises that have been the same from the beginning.

We have God’s Word.

Our hope is based on faith, trusting that God’s Word is one big promise. So far the promise has stood firm and we have been able to count on it every day. Let us continue to hope in God because He cannot lie…

Psalm 100:5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

Jesus is described as being our Good Shepherd because a good shepherd will continue to look after their flock no matter what happens.

Jesus loves us and wants to take care of us. In order to allow Him to do that we do have to submit to Him so that He can care for us.

We have thousands of years of proof that God continues to care for us and have mercy on us. How much more proof do we need that He is our Lord and Saviour who cares!

Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,

One thing we can learn from the past is who we can trust. If someone is always there for you then you get to trust them and even depend on them.

When we need someone to turn to we will most likely turn to one of those people that have been there for us in the past because we know we can count on them.

God has been here for us from the beginning and will continue to be a refuge and a tower of strength we can count on always.
