Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Life crashes in and we wish we could be children again. Then, maybe, we would have someone to take care of us and protect us from our uncertainties and fears. Into our confused and chaotic world, God's faithfulness comes to us once again in the form of a promise. Like a loving parent with a frightened child, God reaches down and takes hold of our hand. He comforts us with his precious words, "Don't be afraid. I'm here with you. I will help." Even when the LORD may seem distant, the echo of this promise can remind us that we are never alone or forgotten (Hebrews 13:5-6; Romans 8:32-39).

My Prayer...

Abba Father, whose presence and help are always near, please help me have faith that you are there. I confess that at certain points in my life, you have seemed distant and I have felt alone. Please remind me through your Spirit of your nearness and your care. In my moments of struggle and doubt, please make your presence known. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
