The best part about the foreman of a building project is that he is the go to guy for all your problems and questions.  If you have a concern about one of your requests, he’ll get it answered for you one way or another. 

Psalm 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."

We were blessed in our recent church and school remodel to have a couple of good foremen who responded to our needs.  However, not all foremen are created equal, are they.?.  The same can be said about the various “gods” of this sin filled world.  If you have studied any of the ancient Egyptian gods (many of which are mentioned in the Bible), or the Roman mythological gods, or the thousands of Hindu gods still worshipped today, you’ll find they are all very limited and very specific in what they can do.  They were certainly not all created equal, because they all were built or created by man. 

Jehovah, the one and only true God is the Triune God of the Bible. He sets Himself apart from the rest of “gods” of this world.  He is eternal, not created. He displays and demonstrates more love than any other god in His sacrifice of Himself (Jesus Christ) for the sins of the whole world.  And He continues to show His answers to our daily prayers.  Our Lord gives us every reason to trust in Him for salvation and when we call on Him for any of our problems or questions. He says, “I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me.”

Like the foreman of a building project, Jesus Christ is our Foreman.  He is Lord and Master over all.  He is our Savior from sin and our rebellion against God’s commandments.  He is the only one who can literally fix anything.  Our problems, our worries, our fears, our struggles, our daily needs, our guilt, our anxiety, our depression, and even our facing off with death.  Jesus is the one who teaches us through His raising of the dead (like Lazarus in John 11 and others), or when He Himself rose from the dead (as Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15), that He has power over all things, even death itself!  And this Jesus, our Lord God, is the one who works and lives to serve you.

Remember Psalm 50:15.  Call upon Jesus for anything.  Trust in His good and gracious will and that He’ll answer your prayers in His own perfect time and perfect way.  Think of Jesus as your Foreman who works to serve you.  Because He’s even more than that, Jesus is your Friend.  He is your brother.  He is your Savior!  And He loves you more than anything else!
