A few years ago when I was going through a difficult time in my life, the Lord revealed so much to me. As Christians, we all must come to those places in our our lives where God reveals things to us we’ve never really saw before. God showed me in this time of trial that He was and would always be enough for me. It was like an “Ah-ha” moment! You may be thinking, well, that is so easy – to know He is and will always be enough for us. But, my friend, have you truly come to that place in your life where you KNOW beyond a shadow of any doubt – come what may – you’d rather have Jesus than any person, place or thing in your life?? If you have not, I encourage you to seek God in prayer, seek Him in His word, draw nearer to God so you can truly say, “I’d rather have Jesus than anything!”
“I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I’d rather be His than have riches untold;
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands.
I’d rather be led by His nail pierced hand.
Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin’s dread sway.
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.
I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame.
I’d rather be true to His holy name.
He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He’s sweeter than honey from out the comb;
He’s all that my hungering spirit needs.
I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead.”
