Never to Leave Me Alone.
In this world you will have trouble, but be brave! I have defeated the world. John 16:33
My granddaughter just wrote a song entitled “Dear World”. (Check it out on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWgIU66jdvw). In it, she asks that we not give up and keep on keeping on. Will it be easy or even possible? The world has been struggling since the beginning, so as it progresses, more people and problems rear their ugly heads.
In John 16, God is telling us He’s got this. You ask, “Where is He?” Guess what, He doesn’t move, we do. The Holy Spirit lives in you if you know Jesus as your Savior (my prayer is that you do). I am Jesus to the world. That’s really a big assignment. Jesus gave us this job when He joined His Father in Heaven. Why He ever came is beyond you and me, BUT HE DID!
I really don’t think we have much time, but what we do have should be used for Him. I know He will never leave or forsake me. Will there be trouble? You bet! I will end with a little song we used to sing when I was a child. “No never alone, no never alone. You promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone.“ What a great God we have!
