The scripture that stuck out to me today was Genesis 28:16, which says Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!”
That God is with us is a common theme throughout the Bible. God is with us.
He has always been with us. From creation, before we were born, every day of our lives, and for eternity.
Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 28:20 “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
This should give us great comfort and assurance, particularly when we are struggling with life issues.
No matter what we are going through, God is with us!
Often when we are struggling, it may seem as if God is far away. Sometimes that is the case because of sin on our lives; but no matter how we feel, that is not reality.
The reality is God is always with us. He told us so.
We may be like Jacob, not even realizing that God is with us.
But that is the great story of the Bible.
God is with us… always!
