MEMORISE: Psalm 37:39

“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.”

READ: Psalm 46:1-7 (KJV)

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Many children of God do not fully comprehend the fact that our God is Omnipresent. When you really understand this truth, your heart will be filled with resounding joy, irrespective of whatever situation you might be going through. In Psalm 46:1, the psalmist revealed Him to us as the Present Help. To reassure us of this, God spoke to us through His prophet in Isaiah 43:2, saying:

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

To further convince us beyond any shadow of doubt, God manifested Himself in the flesh and said to us in Matthew 28:20:

…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

How comforting and encouraging this is. No wonder Paul was able to say in Romans 8:31:

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

The reason no one can be against you is that the presence of God is always there to chase any kind of danger and shame away from you. It was the Present Help who saved me from the financial embarrassment of not having enough to feed the crowd that came for one of our conventions. My wife came to me asking for additional money to keep feeding the crowd when the convention was just halfway through. I did not have any money, but the Lord showed up in His usual way of proving Himself mighty in my life. He sent people to me who met this need, and in the end, we had more than enough to feed the crowd. Another time, I was almost stranded during one of my trips to a foreign country because my flight was delayed for one day, and I had spent all the money with me. I prayed to the Present Help, and before I went to bed that night, I had more than enough for the rest of my trip.

In today’s Bible reading, you are encouraged to be of good courage because God is with you in spite of the enemy’s plans to harm you (1 Peter 5:8).

Beloved, to enjoy this divine comprehensive insurance, you need to belong to the family of the Present Help. Give your life to Him and make a commitment to love what He loves and hate what He hates. You will begin to experience His presence wherever you go.

Father, thank you for always being with me. I am confident because you are always present with me.

Nehemiah 11-13

Hymn 30 – When we walk with the Lord
