“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you…” Deuteronomy 31:8, ESV.
There is an overwhelming truth that can help you in the most trying times. It’s knowing that God will never leave nor forsake you. The devil will tell you that God has left you, but He hasn’t. Your Almighty God is always at arm’s reach.
Whether you are in prison or a penthouse, He’s there, and He won’t ever leave you. Whether you are in court or ICU, He’s there and He won’t ever leave you. You could have just decided to live in sin, or for the moment, you just don’t care anymore, yet He still won’t forsake you. Some people will leave your side when things get tough, but in the heat of the fire my brother, that’s when you learn the Father is with you the most.
He will never desert you, or leave you in a bad place in your life. Since He won’t ever leave or forsake you, an access to Him won’t either. He is Jehovah Shammah–The Lord Who is There–meaning wherever you are, He will be present and always help you when you call. He is Jehovah Jireh your Provider, and He will supply all your needs. Jesus is the Way, and through Him there’s always a way to overcome.
Prayer: Father, thank You for never leaving nor forsaking me. No matter where we are, You are there. Help me always to remember You are at arm’s reach when I call. My peace comes from You. May my faith rest in You and that in my battle, You are with me to overcome it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
