God Is Always With Us

Jeremiah 1:1-10

When was the last time you felt the presence of God in your life? We all long to experience Him abiding with us personally and intimately, and when we can’t sense His closeness, we may think something is wrong in our relationship. But that’s not necessarily true.

In the Old Testament, the Lord appeared to prophets like Moses, Jeremiah, and Isaiah to give them His messages for the people. Today, the revelation of God is available to us in His written Word. In addition, believers in Jesus Christ have also been indwelt by the Comforter—God the Holy Spirit is always with us, though we’re not usually aware of Him in an overt way. Sometimes we sense His presence to a greater or lesser degree, but this is not something we can orchestrate or manipulate.

Remember that we are called to walk by faith, not by experience. The Lord has assured us He will be with us always even to the end of the age (Matt. 28:20). So on those days when you can’t sense His presence, try to rely on this truth. It will sustain you with strength to serve, endurance for hardship, and comfort in suffering.
