God Is There, Every Hour!

Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isa. 41:10)  

Back in World War II a scribble of comic graffiti began appearing on walls everywhere, proclaiming, "Kilroy was here!" This declaration was found on walls in Germany. It was found on buildings in Tokyo. It was found on big boulders in America. Kilroy was everywhere, it seemed. 

God is not like Kilroy. He does not write His name on the walls and rocks of life, but He is there---every day, every hour, every tick of the clock! To borrow the now-classic words of the late Francis Schaeffer, "He is there and He is not silent." Never doubt the presence of God. 

He is there with you on your own personal pilgrimage . . . His unsearchable mind working in concert with His unfathomable will, carrying things out under His sovereign control. 

Esther: A Woman of Strength and Dignity 

All of us in some way, shape, or form will have a very long and difficult journey in our lives. Obviously, the type and degree of difficulty any of us experience in life will vary from person to person. Regardless of how difficult our experiences are, it's always comforting to know that God is right there with us every step of the way. 

Having God by our side will always enable us to gather the strength we need to make it through the hurdles that come our way. As a result of receiving the godly strength we need for the way, we will become people of dignity. Before we know it, everything we say and do will be done in a very dignified manner. We become more Christ-like in our behavior. 

God is indeed with us everywhere He sends us. He is also with in every moment of our waking day. Knowing that He is indeed with us regardless of the situation at hand is the most comforting and assuring piece of knowledge we will ever have. My dear friends, God is with you. There may be moments when it may not feel like He's with us, but He's there and ready to help us through whatever concerns us. What a beautiful thought!

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! My hope and prayer is that you will be encouraged, inspired, and wiser from knowing that God always has, is, and will forever be with us! God bless you and keep you all in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!...:-)
