"....I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5b
Just a reminder this morning for someone who is feeling "alone" (where God is concerned). You are feeling like God has left you. You feel as if He has abandoned you in your time of need. It seems as though He has led you into a situation and now He is no where to be found. You feel like you are facing it alone.
Be encouraged, He has not left you. He is still there. He is watching over the situation and He is right there with you. While the Israelites were waiting to be freed from Egyptian bondage, it seemed as if God had left them, but He was there. When Daniel was in the lion's den, where was God? He was there. When the three Hebrews were in the fiery furnace, it looked as if the Lord had abandoned them, but He had not. He was right there with them in the fire.
He doesn't run out on us in our time of need, or anytime. He said He would "never" leave us. And when He used the word never, He meant never. His presence never leaves us because when we are born again, His presence takes us residency within us. Our bodies become His temple-- dwelling place. His presence doesn't just come upon us, it doesn't just come and walk beside us, or come to hold our hands during difficulties, His presence is living in us. So take heart this morning, He hasn't and He won't leave you. Because He is in you.
Have a great day. The Lord's presence won't leave you because His presence is in you.
