Often in trials we are tempted to fear He has abandoned us or forgot about us or He is not good, as if He was this would not be happening. In Psalm 13:1-3, David came to some wrong conclusion about God concerning the length of his trial, Four times he askes in the first two verses, “How long O LORD?” He believed God had forgotten him and abandoned him. He had not, but so skewed was his thinking and the severity and length of the trial he was in brought out what he thought and believed  about God. He had wrong concepts and they were made clear in the midst of  his trial. And without beating up on him, we often need to look no further than ourselves and what comes out in regards who we believe God to be in our trials and sufferings and troubles. We too may ask in difficulties, “where is God?… God I don’t know where You are,” and such feelings and thoughts like this, believing falsely God has abandoned, forgotten us.

He has not, will not leave, forsake, abandon, discard His own. The apparent “silence,” or lack of “feelings” do not nullify or indicate His leaving or abandoning or disowning you. The absence of “feelings” are not to be believed as though He is no longer interested or for you. Such lack of the “feelings” of His “presence” are not to be trusted. They neither prevent His being present with you, or for you, in times of trouble, as His Word reveals He is always with you. He is consistently the same. His promises are true and He is with you. The choice is to walk by “feelings” or faith in the Faithful One, who has SAID…

  • “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” – {Heb 13:5}
  • “…And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”- {Matt 28:20}
  • “Be strong and be courageous, do not be afraid nor discouraged for the LORD your God is with YOU WHEREVER YOU GO!- {Joshua 1:9}
  • “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”- {Deut 31:6}
  • “…I can never get away from Your presence!”- {Psalm 139:7}
  • “…I will be with him in trouble,”-{Psalm 91:15}

God is present, always present, never absent, but present from before time, at the beginning of time, throughout time and for all eternity. He is ALWAYS Present!

That is reason to

Rest in Him,

Rejoice in Him,

Relate all to Him,

Rely on Him!

Reach out to others and Remind them of God, who is always Present with them too!

REMIND Yourself  of the truth about Him from His Word when you are in difficulties, trials, sorrows, temptations, in all seasons and occasions! 

God is present, God is with me!”

 God bless,
