God is faithful. He will never leave you nor forsake. He will stay with and He will watch over you. Faith moves His hand but His mercy and grace intervene at times in our lives when we least expect it. I can say that I was saved by His grace. I can say that He delivered me when I didn’t know Him and I didn’t deserve Him. God was there all along and He was loving me all along. I used to believe that God only loved us when we were good or when we believed in Him. He loves us at our worst and He loves us even when we have no idea who He is. His love for the world is unfathomable. It is deeper than the deepest ocean and it is more powerful than all the powers of the universe united. His love for us is huge and because He adores us, He will never leave us. Today might feel like God has left you and you can’t find Him anywhere. Our emotions, our feelings and our senses lie to us when we try to approach God. Just because we don’t feel Him doesn’t mean He is not around. Just because we can’t see Him at work doesn’t mean He is not doing great things on our behalf right now. Just because we are going through hell doesn’t mean that God has deserted us. There are times when we have to remember that God keeps His word and He says He will be there with us forever. We have to believe in the God of forever. We have to put our trust in Jesus. He died for us and when He came back to life, He sent His Spirit to be with us. Friend, the Spirit of Jesus lives in you and He is with you. You are not alone. You were not abandoned. God is with you all the time!
God is watching over you, friend. He sees your every move. He knows all your thoughts. He hears all you say including the whispers and the cries of your heart. He knows you through and through and He knows you better than you know yourself. He is behind you, in front of you, above you and under you. Wherever you go, God is there. Whatever you do, God is there. Whatever happens to you, God is there. Today I want to encourage you to have faith in God’s presence. You might need to unlearn how you perceive God and start trusting that God is always there and that no circumstances, no problems, no trials, no feelings can separate you from God. He is always willing to help you and to bless you. Trust that He is a caring Father. Learn more about Him in His Word. Take the time to communicate with Him and to show Him that you know He is around. He is not leaving your side and He will never give up on you. He is there to back you up and to assist you in becoming all you can be in Him. His Spirit is in you to teach you, to comfort you and to point you to Jesus. You are in good hands. You are in great company. God is the best friend you should always pursue. Acknowledge Him in all you do. He is there in all you do. God is with you even when you are not with Him. Think about that!
Lately when I have felt lonely, I have turned to prayer. I get on my knees and I talk to the Lord. He is comforting and He is always listening. God is with us and He wants us to be in good company. I know that when we keep our faith in the Lord, He sends good people our way. He has people for you and me. People who can be added to our families. People that become family. People the Lord has handpicked for us. God is with us through the people He chooses for us. I have been blessed by a great family and by amazing friends. God has shown Himself faithful and He has given me the people I needed. Those who make me feel loved and cared for. Do you believe God can love you through people? I strongly believe that. God is also using you, friend, to love others and to be the vessel of peace and joy that some people need. God is with you so you can show Him to the world. God never leaves you because someone might need Him anytime and anywhere. God is with you so you can extend His love and compassion to the world. Don’t neglect the Spirit of God that is in you. You are never alone and you are always able to share God’s love. Tap into His presence. Tap into His love. He never leaves you! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
