Encouragement for Every Season of Life
Don't you desire to walk through life with a sense of confidence and assurance? Sometimes, however, you come to the end of your day or week feeling worn out. Your nerves are frazzled, and you feel depleted. You seem to be in a season of trials, walking through valleys, water, and fire. You know there's a purpose, but you feel totally isolated and are asking the question, "God, where are You?"
Be reminded today that you do not journey through this life alone. God is, and has been, with each believer every single day. He travels with us side-by-side and hand-in-hand. We walk in the presence of the living God, whose Spirit abides with us and is in us. (John 14:16, 17)
No matter what season of life you are in - no matter how long, short, painful, or easy it might be - God wants you to know you are never alone. He is with you always. (Matthew 28:20). What an encouraging thought! David reflected on this reassurance in Psalm 139: he realized that no matter where we might go, the Lord is right there with us. We are never beyond the reach of a God who is full of loving-kindness (1 Chronicles 16:34), tender mercy, and comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3)
Friend, remember God is faithful and omnipresent. You have a partner in this life-a friend that sticks closer than a brother. And He will never leave nor forsake you, on this day or any day. Have a wonderful time walking with Him today.
