A Penny's Worth of Thought: You Never Go Alone
March 27, 2015, 9:29 AM

When you belong to the Lord, you are never alone.  

Deuteronomy 31: 8

The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you.  He will not fail you or forsake you.  Do not fear or be dismayed.

God calls us to do His work on this earth.  We are his messengers and it is God on high that we serve.  Always remember, no matter what God calls you or sends you to do:  

God never sends you into a situation alone.

God always goes before you.  He guides the way but also prepares the way and the hearts and lives of those you will encounter along the way.   With the children of Israel in the Old Testament He led them out of Egypt in the form of a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.  Later He led them by his presence in the Ark of the covenant.  He led His chosen people then and He will lead you now!  He always proceeds you into every situation.  God is never caught off guard or surprised by a situation or circumstance.  Because of this we can trust Him as He leads us.  He goes before you and knows exactly what you need for you pilgrimage.  

He also walks beside us and behind us to protect us and give us comfort.  

Jesus knew that His disciples would be bewildered by His crucifixion, so he assured them in advance, that no matter what happened He would always go before them and with them.  He knew what they were experiencing and what they would experience because He had gone before them and already experienced it.

He promises you the same.  The Bible tells us that God will never leave us or forsake us.  It is a promise that we can cling to by faith.  

If you are going through a difficult or confusing time, know that God goes before you and stands with you even in the darkest hour.  There is no where you can go that you won’t find Christ already there waiting for you to join Him.

God has promised you and what He has promised, He will be faithful to keep.
