Jesus is Better

Jesus is better

A lot of the time when we get around to the new year we try to better ourselves. We seek the desires of the world trying to get skinnier, get richer, or get happier. But the question we need to ask ourselves in this coming year is how can we strengthen our relationship with Jesus?

In a world that is constantly letting us down we need to know that we can find our strength and hope in a Savior. We have gone through pandemics, protests, and a countless number of different things that show how fallen our world is. We can find peace in knowing the One who really knows. We may see things fall and break and disappoint us but just like Job says “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.” Job 19:25

Just like Asaph writes in Psalm 73:26, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Even though we may get let down and the world fails we find strength in God our redeemer. When we put our focus and trust in Him the world letting us down doesn’t worry us because we know that He has us in His hands.

I know that we can get caught up in trying to please ourselves and trying to impress others, and we can forget what our true purpose is. There’s no amount of money we can save, no amount of weight we can lose in this new year that will ever compare to the joy and peace we can get from a close relationship with our creator. Our Jesus is better than anything the world could ever try to give us or we could try to give ourselves.
