Depending On Gods Presence

Thousands of children experience it every year. So does one out of every two spouses. Parents arenít supposed to leave their children nor spouses their life partners-but they do.

Growing up, I could count on one hand the peers I knew whose parents left them. Nor did I know many whose parents were divorced. My parents didnít leave me, and they didnít leave each other either. But I have been left. By friends who moved away and by great-grandparents, grandparents and one parent who surrendered to death.

Being left is never easy. Moses was Israelís leader for a number of years. He led them out of Egyptian slavery and through forty years of nomadic desert wandering. But his earthly sojourn was complete, and it was time for someone else to assume command. As he commissioned Joshua, he reminded him and the nation to be strong and courageousÖfor the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6).

Even though others may leave us, a fulfilling life can still be enjoyed by remembering God never will. He created us in the past, sustains and loves us in the present and will bring us to himself in the future. We are never alone. The continual presence of Godís Spirit gives us power to live with joy, confidence and peace regardless of how difficult our circumstances are. In the good times and in taxing times, God is always near. Joshua faced difficult days ahead as he conquered a land filled with enemies of his people, but he faced each day with enthusiasm knowing God would never leave him. Let God teach you the same.

Prayer: Thank You merciful Lord for being our ever present Comforter whenever we feel helpless, frightened and alone. www.lovelinesfromgod.com

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
