Javen’s ‘I’m Alright’ is a beautiful, true portrayal of our lives as believers in Christ. In college, there are many atheists who constantly confront me, and they strive so hard to deny the existence of God. They constantly hold on to theories and they have set their heart hard against any sort of acceptance of the truth behind the real Lord.
I constantly fail to understand why they would complicate the entire idea and take up the burden of the world onto their shoulders when Jesus simply says to lay your entire burden down on Him and just accept Him as your Lord. The Lord just wants to walk with us all the way and help us out of all our troubles so that we may grow stronger in Him. Jesus gives a simpler, logical way out and yet some of us choose rather to question and doubt and take up the weight of the world on our shoulders.
From what I’ve observed, such people who are really smart and capable, lose their peace of mind due to all the questioning and doubting. Due to their constant denial of the existence of God, they strive to find the reason for their existence and constantly lose hope. They try to come up with some rational explanation for everything and strongly deny the supernatural. This also constantly leaves them in a state of depression and hopelessness especially when they think that there is no one who will support them or help them in their times of trouble. They may face a sense of isolation and desertion. Also, their future may appear uncertain to them. They move along with a sense of uncertainty, with no guarantee for their future.
Jesus calls us to become as children, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven. We simply need to accept His wonderful gift of Salvation, live in Him and let Him work in us. If we live without questioning and accept His perfect Will, He has only the best in store for us and everything will become clear to us one day.
Indeed, everyone has a right to difference in opinion. However, it is much simpler to gain acceptance and live simply with no fears or uncertainty. We will always have the Lord to be on our side to guide us in every way and we have a sense of guarantee in Him for He has the best in store for us.
Our walk with Christ is not going to be an easy one, indeed. But when we are in Christ, we have the promise that He will be with us always, no matter what may come our way, we are promised that we will never be alone. When things get too tough and we fall apart, Jesus promises to carry us through. We can always trust in Him to be alright.
This is the promise that we can have in Christ:
“I sought the Lord,
and He heard my cry;
And pitied every, every groan.
As long as I live, and troubles rise,
I’m willing to trust Him,
So I’ll be Alright.”
There will be times when our faith will be shaken to the core, the world may come down on us, and we may feel like there is no way out of our situation. Yet, in these times, the Lord asks us to hold on firmly to Him, because He promises that He will never let us go – no matter how strong things may fall down on us.
I strongly encourage you to listen to Manafest’s ‘Never Let You Go’. This powerful song will give you great comfort and encouragement to hold onto the Lord, no matter what may come your way. If you need the assurance that you will not be left alone, no matter where you are, God promises that He will never let you go. This is a song that will stir your very core.
When you look all around you, it’s really impossible to deny the existence of God. It’s far too obvious. Anyone who denies the existence of a wonderful, loving God is denying a happy life with no uncertainty, doubt or worry. That indeed is a pitiful existence.
’33 Miles’ says it right: “There is a God; This is the proof: That all around the evidence is speaking the truth…”
“Believe it or not, There IS a God.”
The artist Austin Bridge, with his amazing voice, also echoes the same message. There is a God, how much proof do you need??
“Try and put your arms around a hundred year old tree,
Or climb up on a horse, and let it run full speed,
Or take a look down at the world from thirty thousand feet on your next flight.
Go watch a flock of birds, against the morning sun, Close your eyes and listen to the river run,
Or catch a firefly in your hand or a raindrop on your tongue, That’s right:
>> There is a God, how much proof do you need?
Plant a seed and see what comes out of the ground, Or find the heartbeat on your baby’s ultrasound;
Put a few years here, and don’t it sound like a song?
And stop and think about what you don’t understand:
Things like life and love, and how the world began.
And the doctors say they can’t explain this, but the cancer’s gone.
>> There is a God, how much proof do you need?
Science says it’s only circumstance, Like this whole world’s just an accident,
But if you want to shoot that theory down, then look around, just look around…
>> There is a God, how much proof do you need?”
