He always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that God has poured out upon us. 2 Corinthians 1: 4 TPT
One of the most comforting things God has done for us is to give us the gift of The Holy Spirit—our Alongside One—our Comforter.
And, oh how we need His comfort in days like this!
We desperately need to know:
- We are never left alone.
- He is always here.
- Always near.
He is in us, beside us, over us, and around us.
We overcome through our Alongside God.
Yes there are mountain-size problems
Yes, we are in a fallen world with disasters aplenty.
Yes, we will sometimes doubt; we might even stumble or falter.
But we will not give up.
He won’t let us.
He is for us.
Walking right beside us through every shadowed valley.
And yes—He is good.
He is here alongside us—and that gives us courage. That gives us strength. That gives us all we need to hope, and to begin again, because…
He is our mountain-moving God.
- So we will trust in Him.
- We will not be afraid.
- He is here alongside us.
One simple question will reveal His presence.
When fear or anxiety come to rob you of your peace?
- Slow down.
- Find a quiet spot.
- Then in the stillness ask, “Jesus are You there?”
Your Alongside One will whisper, “I AM here.”
(And He is!)
