When you run into challenges in life, what’s your first reaction?
I’d like to say that I always turn to God right away and remember His promises to me. But if I’m honest, I often turn to other places more quickly. I may,
- think of a way out
- act out of emotion
When challenges come up, I try to remember this specific promise:
“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20 NIV).
This may be the central promise of Jesus. It flows out of the Gospel and is a foundation for many, if not all other promises!
What a difference it makes for me, no matter where I am or what I’m dealing with, to remember that Jesus is with me.
Be encouraged. No matter what you face today, our friend, Lord, and King—Jesus—is with you.
