A Flickering Flame

Isaiah said about the coming Messiah in 42 v 3

He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle.

This scripture is mentioned again in Matthew 12 v 20.
There are many times one can feel despondent, sick, disappointed, hopeless and depressed. One may feel like the candle just burning so little it is about to go out.


Or one may have just received bad news that leaves one crushed. Or life has thrown difficulties at you that you feel overwhelmed. Perhaps you have a sickness that does not improve with medical help and you don’t know what to do. You feel like the crushed reed.


Take heart. You are a good candidate for Jesus to heal and restore. Matt 12 v 15 says that Jesus healed all the sick among them and delivered the demon possessed.


Call upon Jesus like the blind man who called to Jesus as he passed by. He knows how weak you feel. He will come to you and strengthen you and help your flame to burn again. He will turn around your fortunes. J

Jesus said he is the truth. He does not lie. He will help you and heal you. Jesus healed me many times when I was like that brushed reed or that flickering flame . I felt like giving up many times but Jesus lifted me up again. He is faithful. Hope again, put your trust In God.
