The other day I was talking and praying with my friend Taj and the Lord brought to my heart the thought that “It doesn’t get any better than this”.
So often I am caught up into the activities of the day and just trying to get everything done, that I forget that I am walking with Jesus no matter what circumstance I am in.
Remember the two discouraged men who walked with Jesus on the road to Emmaus without knowing it. They were downcast because Jesus had been killed and they didn’t know what was going to happen. Afterwards when they realized that it was Jesus who had encouraged them in their difficult circumstance, they exclaimed “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32)
No matter where we are in life, when we sense the presence of Jesus, we realize that with Jesus with us, “It doesn’t get any better than this”.
