…For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Believe Jesus’ Word That He Is With You
Thank Jesus for His presence whether you “feel” it or not. When it comes to His presence, don’t go by your feelings. Feelings can be deceptive. Go by His promise that He is Immanuel—God with us!
A groom approached his pastor almost immediately after his wedding ceremony and said, “Pastor, can I talk to you for a second?”
“Sure,” the pastor replied.
The groom said, “You know what, I don’t feel married.”
The pastor grabbed him by the collar and growled, “Listen, boy. You ARE married whether you feel it or not, understand? Just take it by faith that you are married!”
My friend, don’t go by your feelings. Go by the truth and the truth is this: God promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So practice His presence even if you feel like Jesus is 100,000 miles away. Remember that feelings aren’t always based on truth. So go by God’s Word, which is always the truth.
Whatever role or vocation you are in, whether you are a schoolteacher, business leader or homemaker, know based on His unchanging Word that Jesus is with you and that He wants to make you a success!
