“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.”

– Joshua 1:9

Oftentimes we feel as if we have to face the challenges in our life alone. We feel like we can’t reach out to our friends and family and sometimes we feel we can’t reach out to God. Maybe you feel like you’ve disappointed God. Or you feel like God’s abandoned you because of your mistakes or imperfections. I want you to know today that everybody’s imperfect, everybody sins, everybody makes mistakes, and everybody has regrets. But in spite of that, isn’t God so good? He will never, ever leave you. That’s the thing He wants you to hear today. That as we go through the trials of life – and there will be many – we don’t have to go it alone. We have people in our lives and we have God in our life, and He will never, ever abandon you. Feeling alone in the midst of a struggle or a trial feels terrible. You don’t have to feel that way. God is keeping you company. It’s His name – Yahweh Shammah. I am there for you.



Dear God, thank you for always being there. Even when I’m overwhelmed by the difficulties of life, shame, and hurt, you are so good. You will never leave me.


God is there for you. How can you live in that knowledge today?
