He Will Carry You

Just the last Sunday, I heard the song “He will carry you”. And this tune stays in my heart, and I have decided in my heart to share this song with some folks tomorrow. As I was pondering on this song, my mind flew back to many years ago (not too many…), when I was in Secondary school. Then, I did not really know Jesus, though now I know I was very much on His heart then even as of now. A dear friend of mine wrote in my autography, the entire story of “Footprints in the sand”. Ever since then this story has occupied a place in my heart, and even at this moment, when I think about this story, it still warms my heart, knowing that my Saviour is ever with me, carrying me through every challenge that comes.

It was about a man who had a dream, of him walking with the Lord. And before him flashed scenes of his life, and they were always represented by 2 sets of footprints. However, he noticed that during his lowest and saddest times, there was only 1 set of footprints. And he was very upset and questioned the Lord, why when he needed Him most, there was only 1 set of footprints. The Lord said to him, during those times, it was Him who was carrying him through and there is therefore only 1 set of footprints.

Remembering the story of Jacob, like what Pastor was sharing, many a times while we are going through difficulties and challenges, especially when people around us seem more blessed and some are not even in covenant with our beloved God, we have a cry in our heart, why are all things coming against me? Why am I not receiving the blessings? Forgetting that Jesus never leaves us nor forsake us. Yet we are not aware that God has already gone ahead of us to prepare the way for us. Even when the storm seems huge, ever ready to capsize the boat we are in, and Jesus seems asleep, not doing anything, the fact that He is in our boat, how can my boat ever go under, so long as He is in it? We can rest assured in His promise towards us, He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Therefore let us all, having already arrive in this new year, keeping our eyes steadfast on Jesus, knowing that He is always with us, He never leaves us nor forsake us, ever present to help us, our joy and peace are wrapped up in Him and Him alone. With Him, all things are more than sufficient.
