You’re Not Alone
Daily Devotional for November 14th
And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20
All of us, at times, find ourselves in a position where we feel alone. Our trials and temptations often cause to question whether God is with us or not. We look at our circumstances so many times that causes us to doubt if God is there. Our natural vision can be so deceptive to the reality of our relationship with God.
The world feels continually outcast from God and with good reason. This is due to the devastating effects of sin which leaves people alienated. The Lord even said to Isaiah that “your sins have separated between you and your God.” Isaiah 58. There is hope for the sinner; His name is Jesus! Jesus came to be the bridge; the mediator between a wicked sinner and a Holy God.
As a child of God, the prophet Elijah declared unto the Lord that He felt like he was the only one left who was serving God, but the truth was the Lord had a great number of people who had never bowed down to a false god. Just because the wonderful presence of God is not always upon you to comfort and calm, doesn’t mean the Lord has forsaken you. Jesus declared many times throughout scripture, “I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
We must come to this place where we realize that God is with us; He is for us continually. Jesus promised His disciples that He would be with them always; always without exception. Have you allowed sin to take a hold in your life? It could be that sin has driven a wedge between you and God. If this is the case, then repent and ask God to forgive. He said He would abundantly pardon. Are you committed to the Lord fervently but still find yourself feeling forsaken or abandoned? God is for you! You may spend times in weeping or lonely nights of pleading prayer, but we must realize that this is a walk of faith. You’ll find God is with you in times when you need Him the most. He will always be there.
