And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.
There will be days when you will desire the presence of the Lord. You might be in the midst of a struggle or a circumstance. All you know is that you need the Lord’s presence to see you through. The Lord is with you each and every moment of your life. He promises never to leave you nor forsake you. The Lord is as close as a whisper.
The Lord is present everywhere. He transcends all limitations of space and is present in the fullness of His being. We can call upon the name of the Lord, and He will hear us, and He will respond. What a comforting promise. The Lord is our source and our supplier of spiritual strength. Spiritual strength comes from the promise of His presence. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go?” (Joshua 1:9 NKJV)
The Lord’s strength comes from a realization of His incredible grace. “You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 2:1 NKJV)
Strength comes through the Holy Spirit. “So he answered me and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6 NKJV)
Friend, the Lord has made a promise and His promise says that when we need Him; when we have become weary, disillusioned, or discouraged, we are to believe that He is and He is the rewarder of those you diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6) Don’t let the fear of your situation keep you from calling out to the Lord. The Lord is as close as a whisper when you desire His attention.
Dear Lord, thank You for always being with us. Thank You that You respond when we call Your name. No matter what we are facing, no matter when, we can speak Your name and You come to comfort us, to provide for us, to give us wisdom and hope. You Lord, are our comforter and our strength. We lift our hearts and our lives to You. We give You praise. In Jesus Name. AMEN
Don’t believe me, believe God!
