Daily Fountain 2017 - Jesus Our Confidant






Tuesday January 10th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 4: 14 - 5: 1 - 6

Topic:         Jesus Our Confidant

Can you imagine the fate of a ship on the ocean without a compass?

When we set our journey to an unknown destination, it is usually surrounded by fears, apprehension and uncertainties.

If we embark on the same  journey with a guide, however we are more confident.

This was the case with Abram (Heb. 11: 8 - 10; Gen. 12: 1 - 4)

In this life, we are like a VOYAGER. Our journey can be broken into stages. The year 2017 is a segment of this our life's journey.

The good news for us is this: in Jesus the revealed Messiah we have a sure Guide, a Guide that can never fail because in Him all things consist - the Past, the Present and the Future (Jn. 1: 3; Col. 1: 16 - 18). He is our Great High Priest Who has passed through all, hence we can journey on with great confidence because He understands our ignorance and human frailties (Phil. 2: 8)

However rough the path of our journey may be, we will OVERCOME every OBSTACLE as we place our TRUST in His ABILITIES.

Faith in the Great High Priest has the matchless potential of dispelling all fears.

Therefore make Him your Confidant and you will have a good story to tell at the end of every segment of your life's journey

Prayer:
Oh Lord Jesus, I confess that You are my Great High Priest. In You O Lord I place my confidence as I move on my life's journey even in this year 2017. Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah and land me safe on Canaan's side
Amen

Memory verse: "For we have not an High Priest Which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin" Heb. 4: 15
