Charles Spurgeon said “Wherever you are, whatever your case, God will be with you.”
Have you ever simply just wrapped your heart in that thought?
Wherever I am…. God IS with me. No doubt about it.
When I’m on the mountain, He is there enjoying the fact that my heart is soaring!
When I’m walking through the valley, He is there…often carrying me because I lack the strength to simply go on.
When I’m burdened down with pain, questions and the fears that so easily paralyzes us, HE is there longing that we’d hand over every single weight that we try to carry.
When I’m praying for my children, for the courage for them to do His will, He is there, with HIS mighty arms wrapped around me.
When I’m looking forward to the ordinary joys of life, He is there basking in the delight that I’m sharing with Him.
When I’m faithfully serving the Lord, willingly following His direction for my life, He is there to guide and direct.
When I’m being stubborn and kicking against His will simply because of the unknown, He is there….patiently waiting for my childlike tantrum to end.
I remember my son preaching a few years back, reminding us that we should be so close to the Lord, that all we have to do is turn to Him….. simply t u r n.
Never, ever ever forget as you pray for your friend, child or family member that is away from the Lord, that He is also there with them too.
We may never understand why they have been away from God for so long, or why God just didn’t step in and immediately bring them right back, but one thing we can count on, is our Lord is always there for us.
Where are you right now? What is your heart facing?
KNOW God is there with you right now!
