Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For YOU ARE WITH ME; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. (NKJV)
Often times, I have thought of a great life as one where there is absence of trouble. Just sailing through life…
However, according to this verse, a great life is one where one has the assurance that “God is with me.” It doesn’t matter whether I’m in the valley or at the mountaintop, in the darkest place or the brightest spot: as long as God is with me, everything will be alright.
As I go to visit the doctor this morning AGAIN, knowing that I am totally healed, I am reminded that even now, God is with me. I am not less of a believer…
Regardless of your current situation, remember circumstances WILL change, but you and I can depend on an EVER PRESENT God. As long as He is with us, even when it doesn’t look like it, we are winning. Rest in Him today and everyday.
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish me and guard me from the evil one. (II Thessalonians 3:3 NKJV – Changes Mine)
