There is a Credit Card commercial that says: â€œDonâ€™t leave home without it.â€Â I wonder if I couldnâ€™t say the same thing about going anywhere or trying to do anything without Jesus.Â He is all that I need and with Him, I have everything!
I am reminded of the Southern Gospel song that says, â€œI canâ€™t even walk without Him holding my hand.â€ When I try to do something on my own, I really get into trouble.Â
In John 15: 4-5, Jesus tells us : â€œAbide in me, and I in you.Â As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.Â I am the vine, you are the branches.Â He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.â€
When I try to witness or do any good thing for the cause of Christ, I will fail unless I let Jesus guide me and help me.Â When I find myself in a desert in my Spiritual life, I always check my attitude.Â Every time I try to â€œfixâ€ things myself instead of allowing the Holy Spirit to take control, I will come up empty.Â Usually, I have gone off by myself without Jesus.Â Dr. Henry Blackaby wrote in his book, â€œExperiencing God: â€œFind where God is working, then go there.â€Â
Remember, God and you make a majority.Â Please donâ€™t attempt to leave home without Him.
I like this gospel song written by Mylon R. Lefevre:
Without Him I could do nothing,
Without Him, Iâ€™d surely fail,
Without Him, I would be drifting
Like a ship without a sail.
Jesus, O Jesus
Do you know Him today
Do not turn Him away
O Jesus, O Jesus
Without Him, how lost I would be!
