“As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants–from this time on and forever,” says the LORD. Isaiah 59:21
Young children love to be in the presence of their mother, when they feel that they are being loved all the time. Children often go through a time of not wanting to be away from their mother, because they love her presence. This bonding is something that occurs because of what the mother has done, not so much what the child does. A mother who truly loves her child will not allow herself to be separated from him very easily or often.
In the same way, and even more so, that a mother loves her child, God loves His children. He loves to be in their presence at all times. Mothers can, and have, left their children. God will not do that.
Once God puts His presence on a person, He does not leave of His own choosing. The only way God will leave, is if that person tells Him to leave and walks away. Even after that, God is constantly trying to get back with His lost child.
God holds true to His promises, and one of those promises is that He will always be with you. Jesus restated that same promise as He was getting ready to leave the earth.
As you are going through a difficult time in life, you can know that God is right there with you. You can know that God will give you the words to speak in every situation.
No matter what you have done in your past, or even current history, God wants to spend time with you. He wants His presence to be with you at all times. When you accepted Jesus into your life, God made a covenant with you that He would never leave or forsake you.
You can rejoice in knowing this. You can rest assured of His presence in your life. Keep your eyes on Him and keep yourself aware of His presence each day.
I pray today that you will know God’s presence in your life; that you will listen to God’s voice; that you will speak God’s words; that you will not push God away from you or leave Him; and that you will know the joy of God being with you.
