You are with me; Your rod an Your staff they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
"You are with me." Yes, you, Lord, are in heaven. Yes, you rule the universe. Yes, you sit upon the stars and make your home in the deep. But yes, yes, yes, you are with me.
The Lord is with me. The Creator is with me. Yahweh is with me.
Moses proclaimed it: "What great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us." (Deut. 4:7 NLT)
Paul announced it: "He is not far from each of us" (Acts 17:27 NIV).
And David discovered it: "You are with me." Somewhere in the pasture, wilderness, or palace David discovered that God meant business when He said: "I will not leave you" (Gen. 28:15).
God is always with you. How can this truth bring positive changes to your life as we be begin a new year?
