Today, I was thinking back to a Bible verse that God has used so many times in my life. In fact…it’s a Bible verse that truly saved my life over 20 years ago…and it’s found in John 14:18…and we read… “No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm—I will come to you.”
When I first discovered this Bible verse, I was feeling as if I was out on a raging sea…and the circumstances I was facing at the time had produced the fiercest storm. As I stood on the troubled waters…barely holding onto life…all that appeared to be surrounding me at the time, was nothing but blackened skies and a wind that cut deep within the soul.
As I began to feel alone and abandoned by everyone around me…it was at that time, when I truly came to see that it was only God who could save me from these raging storms within. As I cried out to Him in desperation; He came to me on that troubled sea and held me close, until the storm had reached its end.
Sometimes the storms we face in life can make us feel so abandoned, with no hope to hold to; but the encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is that there is a God…who out of a great love…longs to share these moments with you…a God that has promised to never abandon you and leave you as an orphan in the storm; so may I encourage you today, to give God a chance. One thing I know for sure; is that even though others may let you down…God won’t…for He will come to you…believe me, I know.
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
