Lately I’ve been thinking about what we would do and what we could endure if we truly remembered Jesus is with us. Imagine! Go do that hard thing! Jesus is with you.
I think about the words in Matthew 28: “And surely I am with you always.”
Or think about the power behind God’s words in Isaiah 41: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Twice stated in the first chapter of Jeremiah, we hear this from God: “Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.”
The people in the Bible endured difficult, painful, and terrifying things, but they knew God was with them. God with us means we can do hard things. His presence means we have the power, peace, and provision for whatever happens in our lives.
