GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US
Today’s devotion caused me to think about how many times God has been with me. When I was not even aware of His presence, He was there. When I look back over my life, I see some dark days, but God was there right by my side. When I was fearful and unsure, God was there preparing a way. I know I’m not alone. Take the time to think about how God has been there for you in those troubling times and thank Him! Even though I knew that He would always be there, after hearing so many times that He will never leave you nor forsake you, I must admit that I was not always aware of His presence. But I thank God that He is always with us! He never left me alone! In Isaiah 41:10, we find these words:
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
God told Isaiah not to be afraid no matter what. The Lord said to him in verses 13 and 14, “Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you… I am the Lord your Redeemer …” and in verse 10, “I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Then prayerfully, we will all come to understand that we need not be afraid because the Lord is always with us.
