Message from the Pastor “Does Anyone Know I Exist?”

Staff Writer
Gonzales Weekly Citizen

When you’re going through a challenging time (and we all do), it can be one of the loneliest feelings in the world.  Whether it’s a threat in your marriage, a struggle in your finances, or the pressure of day-to-day living, when you’re the one going through it, you begin to wonder; “Does anyone know I exist?” and if they do; “Does anybody care?   

Have you ever felt like God has forgotten your address?  Satan has a way of making you feel absolutely hopeless.  He’ll tell you that nobody cares, nobody is praying for you, and your circumstances will never change.  He is a liar.  He is incapable of telling the truth.

God hasn’t forgotten you.  In fact, He is mindful of you.  Not only that, but the Bible tells us that Jesus of Nazareth ever lives to make intercession for us (Hebrews 7:25).  That means His mind is on you.  If Jesus is praying for you, then you can count on it.  His prayers are heard in heaven, and if anyone gets their prayers answered, it has to be Jesus.

Read what the psalmist David had to say about how much God cares about us.

“O Israel trust thou in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.  O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.  Ye that fear the Lord trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.  The Lord hath been mindful of us; He will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.  He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.  The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children (Psalm 115: 9-14).

Have you ever gone to someone in hard times and said, “I need help” and they said, “I’d love to help you but I can’t…”  Let me tell you right now that you will never hear God say that to you.  Not one time will you approach the throne of God and say, “God, I need help financially” only to have Him say, “I’d love to help you but you don’t understand... we’ve got a depression going on up here.  “I had to lay Jesus off this morning, and the angels are on strike.  I’m going to have to sell the Pearly Gates to pay the note on the throne room.  I’d love to help you but you don’t understand, we’re a little short up here today.”

No!  He said that He would supply all you need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus! (Philippians 4:19) 

God could walk in your house right now and supernaturally bless you beyond your wildest dreams financially and it would not put a dent in His capital reserves. 

Remember this, where you are right now, is not where you are going to stay if you put your full trust in JESUS.  Stop what you are doing right now and call out on the name of Jesus and He will answer.
