Have you ever felt that you were navigating through life completely alone? COVID-19 has thrust our society into practicing social distancing, which significantly restricts the assembling of ourselves together. There are not too many of us who embrace the idea of being alone. Companionship and relationships are two things that are important to God. He even told Adam that it’s not good for man to alone (Gen. 2:18). Do you know that since the beginning of time God has always been in total control of whatever is happening in our lives. He is always with us and He is all powerful. Regardless of our present situation, remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE! We must trust God even when we cannot trace God.
When the Children of Israel were suffering in bondage under Pharaoh, God was there. He told them He had seen their misery and heard their crying out because of their situation and He was concerned about their suffering (Exo. 3:7). God took notice to the Children of Israel’s suffering and He did not leave them without a victory. His presence was shown to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego after they were thrown in the fiery furnace when he showed up in the midst of the fire. The King said Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the middle of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God (Daniel 3:15). The Word of God shows multiple examples that God can and will deliver during our lowest points in life.
If God showed up for Israel and the three Hebrew boys, He will show up for us TODAY! God is with us when no one else is available; in the hospital, during unemployment and whatever other troubles we may encounter. God has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). We can rejoice even in the storms of life because God is with us and we have the victory.
Lord I put ALL my trust in You. I trust You while the storms of life are raging because I know You have ALL power in your hand. You will deliver me out of negative circumstances and be a companion for me. Thank you for sending us your son to comfort us when we feel all alone. In Jesus name, Amen
