Do you ever feel alone and so overwhelmed by circumstances that you wonder, “God, where are you? I can’t see you, I can’t hear you, I can’t sense you near, I can’t even feel your presence.”
If you’ve ever felt that way, you’re not alone. I’ve felt that way many, many times. Sometimes, I feel like I can barely breathe. Maybe you do too.
When I’m going through difficult circumstances or a difficult day and am just not sensing God’s nearness, I always go back to His promise in the Bible – “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20).
There are at least 100 times recorded in the Bible throughout the O.T. (Old Testament) and N.T. (New Testament) where God reminds all of us He is with us.
I believe because He knew we would need reassurance often during hard times.
There is a new song by Plumb, entitled, “God Help Me.” Maybe you’ve heard it. Here is a line of lyrics:
“I’m feeling so alone here / And I know You’re faithful / But I can barely breathe / God help me.”
Faith is believing what God says is true. Our faith grows as we experience His promises, especially in the tough seasons of our lives.
Dear Friend, please know whatever you’re facing, God is for you, He is with you, and He will help you. He is faithful. He can be trusted.~
