Who is God?
Someone who is always with us.
Jesus said, “What is the price of five sparrows–two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” Luke 12:6
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matt. 28:20
“When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” John 14:20
“For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” Hebrews 13:5
Who am I?
My daughter lives an hour and a half away from us. She came to town to do some Christmas shopping for a couple of days and had to leave this afternoon. It had started snowing and she was nervous about the drive home.
I said, “Don’t worry. God will be with you.” She smiled and said, “I know, Mom.”
But I had to add, “That doesn’t mean nothing bad will happen, but he will be with you if you crash and as you lay in the snow looking up at the stars.” Then we really laughed.
I have no trouble saying that. God has never promised nothing bad will ever happen to us. Although, when you read the Psalms it does seem like David thought that. I believe God is with us every moment, but I trust him to decide what is going to happen to me. He will be with me through it all.
