Last night, we attended the Saturday evening services at our church. At the close of the sermon, the speaker provided an opportunity for those who had never made a profession of faith in Christ as their personal Savior to come forward and pray what we Christians call “the Sinner’s Prayer,” confessing Him as Lord. I always am so overjoyed to see folks come forward because I know what a gift they are about to receive — the gift of His presence in their lives. He never leaves us not forsakes us.
This week, as I was digging “Into the Word,” I came across a verse that perfectly highlights this gift:
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a Mighty Savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With His love, He will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
Isn’t that a wonderful promise? I am so thankful for the present of His presence. My ever-present God is able to see me through any situation. What peace that provides to my weary soul!
Q4U: How have you experienced the present of His presence during a dark season?
