Do you ever feel alone and abandoned? These are the times when we struggle on our own, forgetting that there is Someone with us, ready to care, guide, and strengthen us. God assures us we are never without Him as He is everywhere at once and is ever-present. Because His Spirit fills the heavens and the earth, He has the capability to always be with us. We can call on Him with confidence that He hears our prayers and that His Spirit intercedes for us even when we don’t know how or what to pray. This attitude about God can give us the peace and comfort knowing that we are never alone and through His Spirit stand firm in our faith.

Read

Psalm 139:7-10: “ Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for being a loving Father that never leaves me. I give you all the praise for the peace and comfort that your ever-present Spirit brings. I pray all I do and say reflects your presence.
