Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
Do yu feel as though God has forgotten about you? Have you been praying and praying, but the doors and windows of Heaven seem closed? Are you wondering where God is?
If so, focus on our Scripture verse for this week. It tells you exactly where God is: He is with you! And no only is He with you, but He is ALWAYS with you.
This means that He is with you whether you feel His Presence or not. He is with you whether things go well or thing go badly. He is with you in the depths of your despair and in the heights of your joy.
Yes, our Lord is always with you! What a comforting promise! But, as with all of God’s promises, you must believe it for it to affect your life in a positive way.
If you believe that our Lord is always with you, your belief will affect the way you think and the way you feel. Knowing that God is always with you will give you courage, comfort, and hope in the face of adversity.
So, stop listening to the devil’s ies that God has forgotten about you ro that He doesn’t care about you any longer. God is very much on the scene of your life, orchestrating it according to His perfect will for you. If He seems silent, He is still at work behind the scenes. He knows what He is doing, and His itming is always perfect.
Believe our Lord when He says that He is always with you. Then act on that belief.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
