Where Is God When You Need Him?
The simple answer is... with you always. Yet, I understand that it can sometimes feel that God is nowhere to be found, especially when
you are facing your darkest hour.
The good news, my friend, is that God is with you through the good, bad, exciting and devastating times of your life.
He remains faithful to you, His beloved child, in every moment.
There is never a time when God is not with you. You cannot be separated from God or His Love for you.
So, how can it feel that He is nowhere to be found?
This occurs NOT because God has moved but because we move away from Him. We step out of the alignment of being one with Him.
This happens when we take our hearts and minds off God and who He is and focus on our own struggles, anxieties, and stressors.
The minute we believe we are alone or facing this life alone we move ourselves away from God and His Loving care.
The good news is that it only takes a moment to remember the truth that you are never separated from God or His Love for you.
All you have to do is remember…ask to feel Him and He will do the rest.
Isaiah 43:2 (NIV)
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
Psalm 23:4 (NIV)
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind.
And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
Psalm 18:30 (NIV)

The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
