Just the Two of Us – Bill Withers
Shabbat Shalom = A Peaceful Sabbath
I often say to the Lord, when something looks impossible for me to undertake,
“Just You and me, Lord; we can do it.”
Inevitably I get it done and I marvel afterward how good God is to me!
I was shopping not long ago and a casual shirt caught my eye. I really liked the color and design of it and it had some embroidered words on the front, but I didn’t notice what it said right away, because I liked the design and color so much. I held it in front of me and I admired it, deciding to purchase it. Then I nonchalantly read the message on the front of the shirt. It said,
“All we need is you and me.”
My heart leapt, because I knew, without a doubt, that the Lord God was responding to my frequent comments to Him,
“Just You and me, Lord; we can do it.”
I prayed for a song for Shabbat today, asking the Lord for the right song and perhaps a special message to go with it, which He gives me on occasion. I opened You Tube and instead of looking for gospel songs, which I usually do, I inquisitively scanned the opening page and just a few rows down, I came to a video, which brought me in the path of this great love song by Bill Withers. Most, or all of you, know the song; it was a major hit in 1981. I remember it well, but it never had the significance in my heart then, that it has today. As I listened to this song, I immediately connected it to my one-on-one relationship with Jesus! My heart swelled and I teared up. Listening to this song immediately made me think of my close relationship with Jesus and how I rely on Him for EVERYTHING, how I spend so much of my time in prayers and conversations with Him and He ALWAYS COMES THROUGH FOR ME! I simply tweaked a few words of the song for myself, as I sang along this morning, like, “We can make it if ‘I try,’” not if “we try.” God doesn’t have to try anything; IT IS ALREADY DONE!
The song says, “Good things might come to those who wait, not to those who wait too late.” In my relationship with Christ, “Good things will come to those who wait, but not to those who wait too late!”
If you don’t know the Lord, or you don’t have a close relationship with Him, He is waiting to MAKE YOUR WORLD! Read His Word and place Him in the center of all that you say and do. You will never regret it, not now, or THROUGHOUT ETERNITY!
Are you aware of the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists Accidents (which includes medical errors) as the THIRD leading cause of death in the United States? What that means is a very high number of individuals leave this world suddenly and unexpectedly (no time to pray and get right with God!). Since we are only here for “a moment, compared to eternity,” if you haven’t already done so, shouldn’t you prepare for your future in eternity? What you do during the “moment” of this life means very little, compared with what you do to build treasures in heaven to enjoy forever. I challenge you to take your loved one by the hand and search the Word of God, starting with the Gospel of John, and learn of Him. You will never regret it!
“Do not lay up for yourself treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal” Matthew 6:19-20
Jesus also said,
“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you” John 2:16
Remember, the song says,
“Just the two of us, building castles in the sky, just the two of us, you and I.” How true!
Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
