Have you ever felt like you were totally alone? Felt like maybe God had deserted you?
There have been days that I have sat and just said “Where are you, God?” I can’t see or hear Him so He must be awfully busy elsewhere!
The truth is though, God is always with us. He is there through all the good, the bad and the ugly. If anyone was missing, it was me. Maybe you don’t even realize it, I don’t. You get so focused on your situation that you forget the One who sees. He sees all and He wants you to turn to Him! You are never alone!
There is a song from many years ago that, even though I don’t know the inspiration of the writer’s lyrics, I do know it works well for me. Jesus has walked with me so often. I wouldn’t still be here if He hadn’t.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”
Gerry and the Pacemakers
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Or your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
Hope this brought a smile to your face just for old time’s sake!
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
Though the laws of physics are much more complicated, for practical purposes we can say that two physical objects cannot occupy the same physical space at the same time. Conversely, a single physical object cannot occupy two different physical spaces at the same time. But the Bible has a different take on these general laws.
Psalm 139: 7 – 12
Theologians say God is omnipresent—He is everywhere at the same time. So He can be “here” and “there.” That means we are never separated from the presence of God. Wherever we are, God is also there. The psalmist David wrote extensively about God’s omnipresence in Psalm 139:1-18. He concluded by asking God to search and know his “anxious thoughts” (verse 23, NASB). God could know David’s anxieties because He was always with David. And He is also with you—so He knows your “anxious thoughts” as well.
God is love, so you are never separated from God’s love, regardless of where you are or how you feel.
Though our feelings come and go, [God’s] love for us does not.
CS. Lewis (David Jeremiah – Turning Point)
