Matthew 28:20


Maybe today you feel like you’re at the end of what you can take. Your world has fallen apart. There are more questions than answers. God is there and He will help you go on. The year was 1966 and my husband was in the Air Force stationed in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam. His spirits were down and someone suggested he go to the chapel on the base. When he stepped into the chapel, he noticed a large picture showing the base. All around the base was the Lord with outstretched hands as if He were holding Cam Ranh Bay.…

Moses spoke to Joshua just prior to his death when he confirmed Joshua as the new leader of the Israelites. Moses wanted Joshua to understand that although he would not accompany Joshua to the promised land of Canaan, the Lord would go with him. He emphasized that the Lord would always be with Joshua. Some 1,500 years later Jesus gave us His personal promise “….lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20, Holy Bible, New King James).

We rejoice in the promises of the Scriptures. God’s word can be trusted in the twenty-first century the same as it was when first written. He not leave us nor forsake us. We are never alone.

And the LORD,
He is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you,
He will not leave you nor forsake you;
do not fear nor be dismayed.

Deuteronomy 31:8 New King James

Prayer: Lord, I am comforted today by these promises. I trust Your word that You will always be with me. Amen.
