DAILY DEVOTION, December 29, 2021
I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen (Matthew 28:20).
Life in this world can be challenging at times. Unfortunately, we all go through some tough times. But, no matter how difficult life can be, we have a tremendous promise. At the close of the Great Commission, Jesus promises to be with us always, to the very end of the age.
Every day, good or bad, Jesus is with His people. Amid trying times, we need to remind ourselves, “Jesus is with me.” If He is with us, He will either carry us through the difficult days or grant us the strength to endure. We ought to get up every morning and, before we do anything else, remind ourselves, “He is with me.” That same reminder should be repeated throughout the day. We do not see Him, but by faith, we know He is with us. That is His promise, and Jesus never breaks a promise. As we live each day walking hand in hand with Jesus, we have nothing to fear. We can rely on His presence always.
Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your promise to be with me always. We sing in church, “I need thee every hour…” Thank You for Your promise to be with me no matter what each hour brings. “Every hour I need Thee…” I know I cannot be victorious in life in my strength. Thank You for promising to be with me. Amen.
