We can not go the place God isn’t. Look over your shoulder; that’s God following you. Look into the storm; that’s Christ coming towards you.
“‘Don’t be afraid,’ Jesus mentioned. ‘Take braveness. I’m right here!’” Matthew 14:27
Energy inhabits these phrases. To awaken in an ICU and listen to your husband say, “I’m right here.” To lose your retirement but really feel the help of your loved ones within the phrases “We’re right here.” When a Little Leaguer spots Mother and Dad within the bleachers watching the sport, “I’m right here” modifications every part.
Maybe that’s why God repeats the “I’m right here” pledge so typically. “I’m with you at all times, to the very finish of the age” (Matthew 28:20). “I give them everlasting life, they usually shall by no means perish; nobody can snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:28). We can not go the place God isn’t. Look over your shoulder; that’s God following you. Look into the storm; that’s Christ coming towards you.
