Today God Is With You

"God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you."         Deuteronomy 33:27 NLT
Consider these timeless words by Margaret Fishback Powers: "One night I dreamed...I was walking along the beach with my Lord.   Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.  For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and one to my Lord.  When the last scene of my life shot before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand.  There was only one set...I realized that this was at the lowest...times in my life.  This always bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma. 'Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk...with me all the way.  But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints.  I just don't understand why, when I need You most, You leave me.'  He whispered, 'My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings.  When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you!'"  And if you need more reassurance, read these two Scriptures: "The Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not" (Deuteronomy 31:8).  "For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me" (Hebrews 13:5-6).  The word for you today is--God is with you.
