Verses: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”
Joshua 1:9 AMP
God is always with you.
So story time: so on Tuesday I was going on a first date with a new guy (my other boyfriend and I broke up), anyways five minutes into the date I got in a major car wreck. It was really bad and I was hit by a semi truck. Praise the Lord me and my date were not hurt. But my car is badly damaged. But by the grace of God, I was safe because I was hit on the driver’s side and it could have been a lot worse. I knew that God was with me because I was safe and not hurt, and that is a miracle. So I want to encourage you today that know matter what you are going through, God has not left you, He is always with you (Hebrews 13:5).
Maybe right now, you are really struggling. Maybe you are battling a mental illness, chronic illness, COVID, cancer, loss of a job, stress at work or school, or maybe you lost a loved one. But no matter what you are going through, God wants you to know that you can always come to Him (Psalm 121:1-2).
One amazing thing about God is that even if you have not been seeking Him for a while or you feel so broken, you can come to God as you are. You don’t have to pretend that you are fine and everything is great. God wants you to bring yourself, just as you are (Isaiah 49:13). And how you go to God is just by seeking Him through: reading His word, worshiping Him, praying to Him, and listening to Him.
As you seek Him daily (I know I say this all the time but if you truly want a relationship with God you have to seek Him everyday or most everyday) He will: comfort you (Isaiah 49:13), love you (John 3:16), help you (Psalm 121:1-2), and always be with you (Joshua 1:9).
God loves you (John 3:16) and He can’t wait to hear from you (Psalm 136:1)!
Right now I am really struggling with (you fill in what you are struggling with) and I know I can’t do life without you. So Lord I pray that as I seek you that I am able to build a close relationship with you. I ask that as I seek you that you fill me with your love, joy, hope, comfort, grace, rest, mercy, and everything else I need. I pray for the Holy Spirit to come into my heart and help me be close with you. I know that your word says that as I seek you will draw near to me. I thank you Lord for always being there for me. I praise you because you are a good God. I thank you for your love, grace, and mercy.
I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.
In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!
