The Scripture text for the morning’s devotional is one that should be very encouraging to us. A promise from our LORD and Savior,
I am with you alway.—Matthew 28:20
The LORD spoke similar words to Joshua before the conquest of the Promised Land.
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.—Joshua 1:5
The LORD was the One who was with the Israelites during their conquest. The battles were won not because of their superior numbers nor their superior skill. Rather, because the LORD God had chosen them as His nation. The morning and evening devotions and their respective portions of Scripture, show us about the LORD’s love for His people and that our lives should be immersed in Him, loving Him, trusting Him and casting all our cares upon Him.
Let us come to the place where our joy is fulfilled in Him, knowing that we were the joy set before Him. When our joy is in Him, then if our circumstances are hard, they will seem less so. For this is truly a fleeting moment. We will be with Him in fulness.
