A rule I have had for years is: to treat the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal friend. His is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is He Himself we have. Dwight L Moody
May He Go With You
“The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”
1 Samuel 17:37
In today’s passage, King Saul sends David out to fight Goliath with an assurance, saying “Go, and the Lord be with you.” David was not alone, the Lord was with Him.
When Jesus sent out the twelve disciples, He did not send them out alone but sent them in two’s. We may wonder why Jesus did that; one reason may be that when two or three are gathered in His name, the Word says that He will be present. His presence is what all of us need. Moses did not want to leave the mountain of God without His presence.
It is important to know that the Lord is with us and therefore, we are not alone. When we live our lives with this assurance, we will not be afraid; the Lord will give us victory over our enemies and we will live as overcomers.
We may encounter many a challenge throughout the day but remember that He is with you and abides in you.
I thank You for this day. May Your presence abide within me, giving me peace and rest to my spirit. Amen.
God bless you.
