For You Are With Me
Psalm 23:4… “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me” (KJV). Every believer must remember that God doesn’t always deliver us from trials, but He delivers us in them. Daniel was delivered in the lion’s den, not from the lion’s den. The three Hebrews were delivered in the fiery furnace, not from the fiery furnace. These men faced their trials with faith. They kept their faith strong while in their trials and passed through this experience by their faith. In some trials there is only one way out… through them. These men kept their eyes upon God. They knew that He was with them. He is with you too.
Many today are in the valley of debt, in the valley of depression, in the valley of decisions, in the valley of sickness. Fear not. Why? Because God is with you. Are you in an impossible situation? Rely upon the supernatural work of God. Proverbs 3:5 exhorts us to trust in the Lord, even when things seem to go wrong. An old anonymous poem says, “When the funds are low and the debts are high / And you want to smile, but you have to sigh / When cares are pressing you down a bit, / Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.” Be encouraged… God is with you.
