Take Comfort in God’s Promises

January 15, 2012

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.

– Wayne Dyer –

Reading this I realize that I don’t care to be alone and fortunately I never am.  As a child of the King of Kings, He is with me and  in me always and as to “like the . . . ” I love Him more than words can express and He loves me more than I can even comprehend.  How awesome is He? 

  • Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
    Deuteronomy 31:5-7

 

  • No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
    Joshua 1:4-6

 

  • Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
    Hebrews 13:4-6

 

 


Monsters STILL Under My Bed!

August 19, 2011

 “Come unto Me” the Lord speaks to us in Matthew 11:28. In my daily devotional reading today Oswald Chambers offers comforting words as he tells us that the Lord wants nothing less for us than oneness in Him. As I read his teaching I was reminded of my childhood. I can recall going to bed. The house suddenly seemed so dark and quiet. It seemed almost deserted, but then I’d hear sounds which spooked me. The shadows in the room told me with certainty that there were monsters under my bed! My stirring drew my parents close to me as they reassured me that they were near and that everything would be okay. I could finally sleep. I’m thinking of this just now and I can recall how calm I felt, how protected, how safe. The sounds and shadows that caused my fear hadn’t changed. What did change was the nearness of love, and the complete awareness that I was never alone. I might encounter “monsters” but I wouldn’t have to face them by myself. Rest came. How I have sometimes missed those innocent days, and yet when I recall them now I realize that I am even more loved and protected than I’d ever realized as that small child who “knew” there were monsters under her bed. For all the love and protection my parents could offer me, my Lord and Savior offers 1000 times more, 10,000 times more. The challenges I face now are real just as the squeaks and shadows of my youth, but I don’t need to fear because my oneness with Christ reminds me that He never leaves me alone. I can face anything because of His love, His power, His protection. I can rest in Him. The monsters may still be under the bed. It doesn’t matter. I’m loved. I’ll be fine.
