Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me. » Psalm 50:15
As I bowed my head in prayer today, I was reminded of a song by Shirley Caesar. A song that I first heard many years ago. A song that I have cherished over and over again, down through the years. A song that affirms the direct prayer line connected straight to Jesus, where He will immediately hear and favorably answer, those who call upon His name.
It’s a song of comfort. A song that brings order to the chaos of daily struggles and challenges. A song that covers a multitude of concerns. As I listened to the song, I began to meditated on Scripture that affirmed the benefits of calling on Jesus. I am so thankful for the presence of Jesus in the Old and New Testament. I give praise to God, hallelujah, for Jesus Christ’s saving grace in the New Testament.
May these Bible verses comfort and inspire all who read them. May this song, help to empower all who need a word of encouragement and hope on this today.
