"Always There"

"...lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."  Matthew 28:20b

This verse doesn't really need any commentary, explanation, elaboration or definition.  It is pretty plain.  It is self-explanatory.  The Lord is with you always-- even if you go to the end of the world, He is still there.

Sometimes the things we go through shroud His presence.  We can't see His presence because it is hid behind our situation.  The fire of the furnace blocks His presence from view because of the intense heat.  The depth of the pit we may be in hides His presence from view.  The size of the waves in our storms cover His presence from sight.  The height of the mountain that is looming over us appears much bigger than He is. 

Why does it seem like He is not with us in those times?  Why can't we see His presence?  Because we are focused on the heat of the fire, the depth of the pit, the waves of the storm, the height of the mountain-- therefore that is all we can see.  We can't see that His presence is with us. 

Let me make this plain this morning-- no matter where you are, no matter what you are facing, no matter what you are going through, the Lord is there.  He is with you.  He is with you always, everywhere, even when you can't see Him for looking at the size of your problems. 

Have a great day.  The Lord is with you always.
