Sometimes we may feel like we are all alone, that we are fighting battles that are too big for us, or that we just can’t handle what life is throwing at us. Let me just remind you that as a child of God, you are never alone!
He [God] isn’t a father though who sits back and does nothing about our circumstances, for He already has a plan in place to take us through the trial, but it is up to us to turn it over to Him and trust His leading and allow Romans 8:28 to be our testimony.
Daniel trusted God in the lion’s den, and God delivered!
The three Hebrew children trusted God in the fiery furnace, and God showed up and they were not harmed.
Joseph trusted God even though he was thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, and then thrown into a dungeon prison, but yet God lifted him up to be Pharaoh’s top man!
If we can just realize that God is with us, and we trust Him to bring us through, then the words of Isaiah 43:2 will be our testimony: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” I have a picture hanging by my back door with this verse on it, so I see it every time I leave and every time I come home. When Satan comes to you with his lies and with discouragement and makes you feel like you are all alone walking this path, remind him of Deuteronomy 31:6 and Isaiah 43:2! He will flee from you. I love this song by Kari Jobe “I Am Not Alone” … friend, God is with you! You are not alone!
