Today's Devotional Thought

I Will Never Leave You
It is easy to feel God’s presence when you are quiet and still and resting in Him and desiring to hear His voice. It is hard when life is going on around you and you feel beat up and when life is so crazy busy that you can’t even remember what day it is. In those moments, though, God is there.
When I read today’s scripture I am very encouraged. It reassures me that no matter what is going on in my life, God is always there.
I recently read a passage from Max Lucado which said this:
“There is never a place in which Jesus is not present. Never. There is never a room so dark…a lounge so sensual…an office so sophisticated…that the ever-present, ever-pursuing relentlessly tender Friend is not there, tapping gently on the doors of our hearts-waiting to be invited in. Few hear his voice. Fewer still open the door.”
God is everywhere and we just have to answer that gentle tapping or stop to hear that gentle voice. Sometimes we are so busy with life that we forget about the creator of life. But, God promises us that He will NEVER leave us. Cling to this promise, ladies, and know that no matter where you are in your life, good or bad, God is right there beside you.
Friend, are you facing something in your life right now that seems impossible? Do you feel like you’re not quite sure what God is doing? I have learned in my life that often times God’s plans don’t make sense right away, but when we look back, they end up being what really was best for us. I am often times reminded that God’s ways are higher then ours.
Be encouraged today that you have a God in heaven who loves you and is always there for you! No matter what is going on in your life, He is there!! Just call on Him and let Him know what you need and let Him help you through it.
