I Am With You

I Am With You…

In a dream, God spoke to Jacob: “I am with you and will keep you wherever you go.” Jacob’s reaction to the dream was to focus on the place where it happened.

He called it “Beit El,” which means “God’s House.” In a way, Jacob missed the point. It wasn’t so much about the place where God appeared. It was that God would be with Jacob regardless of the place, regardless of any place – wherever.

God’s promise to you is that He will be with you wherever you go. He’s there when you are worshipping in His house.

He’s with you when you are in the parking lot and when you walk into your home. He’s there in your mountaintop experiences and in your valleys, in your good times and your bad, when you’re doing great in holiness, and when you’ve fallen in sin.

So don’t dwell on your situation, on how things are going, or even how you’re doing. It’s not about where you are. It’s about Who is with you. Rejoice in that. He’s not the God of where. He’s the God of wherever!

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20

Wherever you go today, take time to stop to be in and enjoy the presence of the Lord.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
