I was reminded again this weekend, that God IS present with us. God is not only with us in the past, but he is definitely present with us RIGHT now. You don't have to believe me, just read the number of passages that speak of this truth.
The Lord IS my strength and shield –Psalm 28:6
The Lord IS a warrior; the Lord is his name. – Exodus 15:3
The Lord IS slow to anger, abounding in love – Numbers 14:18
The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.” – Luke 1:28
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. – James 5:11
(...these are just a few of the almost 200 verses that speak of this truth)
So whatever you are facing today, know that God is with you. God has not abandoned you. God hears your prayers.
"The Lord is near..." - Philippians 4:5b
Living in Grace
