My early morning meditations carried my thoughts to we who must somehow get beyond our circumstances and hold on to God’s promises. This is not an easy thing to do. Our circumstances are so real and so very much pressing against our thinking. And God? Where is God? Yes! It seems that in many of the worst of circumstances He is far from us. It seems He doesn’t really care.
The question for us today is, Is this true? Is God far away when we desperately need for Him to be near? We pray. We search His Word. We ask others to pray for us. But still it seems we are alone.
My dear, dear friend who suffers from circumstances you can’t control - don’t let doubt and inner struggles cover your faith in the God that you know IS real and IS near. Hold on to HIS WORDS, “I will NEVER leave you or forsake you.” Don’t let feelings and a doubtful mind take away your trust in your God. He is as near to you as your own breath. You are wrapped in His arms of safety and He will never leave you to the world’s circumstances.
You will rise above them by His strength and inner power. Every beat of your heart will beat out the sound of His love for you. Bless your day as you walk in this assurance today.
