Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 139:1, “LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.”
Jesus is close to us. He knows us thoroughly. Yet he still loves us without reservation. We see that clearly through his promises in the Bible that he is always with us and that he will never leave nor forsake us. No matter how strong the winds of adversity blow in our face or as challenging as the waves of trouble might be in our lives, we can take courage in our Savior’s continual presence. He loves us dearly and assures us that he will help us overcome our circumstances, no matter how great the need or the danger may be.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: My dearest Savior, Jesus, lead me to trust your promise that you are always with me to help and encourage me through every ordeal and detail of my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
