As believers in Christ, we never have to doubt that God is with us and working in our lives.
He is always at our side, no matter what circumstance we find ourselves in. Even when we feel our loneliest, we can rest assured that God is walking beside us.
After all, we’re told in Romans 8:28a:
We know that for those who love God all things work together for good.
This verse should be enough to reassure us of His love for us and that He is actively working in our lives.
Of course, there are a myriad of verses that tell us that God is always there for us, always on our side. In Isaiah 41:10 we read:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
We need not be afraid of anything in this life, as God is always available to strengthen and help us. All we have to do is trust in Him and place our hand in His.
A few verses later, in verse 13, we read:
For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
Again, God tells us not to be afraid because He is the one who will help us.
In Joshua 1:9, we’re told:
Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
There are also abundant references to God’s presence in the New Testament. Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 28:20b:
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Jesus says this immediately after commanding them to make disciples in all the nations and then baptize the converts. He doesn’t give them a huge, important task like this and then leave them to their own devices. He knows they will need His help.
In Acts 2:27-28, Peter quotes King David in Psalms 16:
For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One see corruption. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.
We can go through the Bible and find many more examples of God telling us He will always be by our side. But the simple truth is that we can’t go anywhere where God isn’t.
Whether we’re high above the earth flying in a jetliner or deep below the ocean depths, He is there, always pulling for us.
He will go to work in your life to help you become the person He has desired for you to be all along.
The redeeming work of Christ on the cross, as He died for your sins then arose from the dead, makes you justified in God’s eyes.
And for that reason, He will never leave you nor forsake you. That fact should be comforting for us all.
All we have to do to tap into this power is accept His son Jesus as our savior, then latch onto God.
We don’t have to be perfect before we come to Him. Just show up where you are, as you are, and He will do the rest.
