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
God’s Shekinah glory led the children of Israel as pillars of fire and cloud through the dangerous wilderness. God is reassuring the Israelites through this verse that all will be well. Even today, when we face life-altering changes in our life, these same words that were once spoken to comfort a people struggling with the changes they were facing, are the same words God is using to calm our fears and anxieties.
Today, He is with us every moment of the day, for we have the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who is our ever-present Comforter and holy Helper in time of need.
Not only is He always ahead of us carving out a path we are to travel on, but He also walks with us as we go through our intimate trials. He is telling us that there is no reason to be afraid or discouraged because He’s not going to abandon us. He has everything under control and all that is going to happen will happen under His watchful eye.
Prayer: Dear God, I thank You for You have promised to never leave me or forsake me. I cling to your promise today, for every promise is ALL “YES” and “AMEN” in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen!
