God is on your side. Remember this today. God is with you and for you. He is by your side all day long whether you acknowledge it or not. God never leaves your side. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit so He would stay with us and guide us. You are hanging out with the Holy of holies every day and you might not even be aware of it. He doesn’t leave once you get on the train. He doesn’t leave once you get to work. He doesn’t leave when you are at school. God is a permanent fixture on the wall of your life. Your mind, your attitude and your behavior might displace Him and put Him in a different corner but the truth is He is unmovable no matter what your head says. Start today with the triumphant thought that God is going to accompany you all day long and there is no exception to that. What does this actually mean for you? What does God being by your side look like?
Do you ever spend a whole day with someone? Do you ever spend every minute of one day with someone? When you do, you usually end up talking to that person a lot. You shouldn’t ignore him or her. The same thing happens with God. He actually spends the day talking to you. He doesn’t ignore you. However, it is up to you how receptive you are going to be to what He has to tell you. Find ways to show Him throughout He day that you are not ignoring Him. You can talk to someone about Him or you can just talk to Him periodically. If you can’t express yourself verbally, write to Him. Yes, write to God. Text Him, so to speak. We spend so much time on our phones we could spend some time writing to Him. You obviously can’t text Him but you can use your phone to write to Him in your Notes section or email what you write to yourself. God is with you all day long. Communicate with Him!
“God is on your side” signifies that you have a refuge and a shelter wherever you go. God being on your side means that when you end up in the courts of life under trial and under pressure, God is your advocate. He is the faithful lawyer that stands by your side and He is there to win the case. He has a whole crowd of witnesses on the stand ready to root for you. God will always vouch for you when you are going through tribulations. The key is to stay aware of His presence. The key is to recognize that you can’t do it on your own. You need the Holy Spirit. You can’t make it without His assistance. He will deliver you every time. He will bless you when you need Him the most. He will comfort you and reassure you. He will pour His love on you and smother you with His unconditional affection. God is on your side, friend so stay encouraged. God is on your side so it doesn’t matter who comes against you. He’s got you. God is always with you!
