02/19/21 Always

READING: Leviticus 14:33-16:44, Matthew 27:57-28:20

It’s just one word among the 780,000+ words in the English language Bible. Just one word: “always.”  

In Matthew’s version of the Great Commission, that’s how long Jesus said He would be with His followers. Always.  

  • If God sends us to the roughest part of our city, He is with us. Always. 
  • If He calls us to the most dangerous part of the world, He’s with us. Always. 
  • If there are few other believers wherever God sends us, He’s fully with us. Always. 
  • If we face health difficulties or family struggles, He is with us. Always.  
  • If natural disaster takes away everything we own, He will still be with us. Always. 
  • If we feel lonely and isolated, He is with us. Always. 
  • If we’re searching for a church home, He is with us. Always. 

I could, of course, go on and on, for there’s no situation when He’s not with us. It’s just one word—always—but it drips with Christian hope.

PRAYER: “What can I say, Father? Thank You for Your promise to be with me always.”

DAILY ACTION STEP:  Wonder at Christ’s promise no matter what you face today.
