Never Will He Leave You
Whilst the battle rages and you feel done
Though all have left, and in your tent there’s none
The Lord above sits there with you
To remind you of, what you once knew
You are not alone
We often turn to our peers for advice and solace when we are enduring challenging situations. But, how often do we seek God when these situations come up? We find ways to reach out to our family or friends for comfort and support but when we are approached with the suggestion of reaching out to God, we revert ourselves back and are hesitant to do so. Why is this the case? Perhaps there are several reasons, such as the uncertainty that a higher spiritual being will not fully understand what an individual is going through. Or it may be the stubborn belief that we will be able to conquer these obstacles ourselves instead of seeking guidance or receiving any form of answer or advice. God is there for us for many reasons. But, among these many reasons are that God wants us, His children, to come forward to him when we are searching for a solution. Joshua 1:9 states:
Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Isolation can be perceived from a negative context. However, when it comes to isolating yourself with God, that is an ideal time to spend your personal, one-on-one time with Him. During this morning’s Morning Dew prayer service, AUHS President Dr. Caroll Ryan stated that your personal time with God presents a distinct and pivotal moment with the Heavenly Father, as this is more directed and intimate which will allow Him to help and guide you along the way. So, remember, do not be afraid or hesitant to approach God and spend personal time with Him. He is always there to listen, and He will always be there to provide you with a definite answer.
May God Bless You All ~
