“I am with you all the days”

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world —Matthew 28:20

Literally, Jesus is saying, “I am with you all the days.” He comes to us each day with a new blessing. Every morning, day by day, He walks with us with a love that never tires and a blessing that never grows old. And He is with us “all the days;” it is a ceaseless abiding. There is no day so dark, so commonplace, so uninteresting that we do not find Him there.

Often, no doubt, He is unrecognized, as He was on the way to Emmaus, until we realize how our hearts have been warmed, our love stirred, our Bible so strangely vivified, with every promise seeming to speak to us with heavenly reality and power. It is the Lord!

God grant that His living presence may be made more real to us henceforth. Whether we have the consciousness and evidence-as they had a few glorious times in those 40 days-or whether we go forth into the coming days as they did most of their days to walk by simple faith and in simple duty, let us know this fact always, that He is with us, a Presence all unseen but real and ready when we need Him to manifest Himself for our relief.

Deserts And Showers

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Isaiah 55:10 says, “as the rain comes down… from heaven.” The flow of life comes from heaven to earth. The earth can appear green for a while, but without the blessing of rain from heaven, it will ultimately end up barren. In the same way, it may seem like we can go without God in our lives, and we appear okay. Things might seem okay for a while, but in the end, our life will be dry and dead. Life without prayer and communion with God is like the earth without rain. Without God’s blessing from heaven, your earthly life is going to dry up. It doesn’t matter what you have: money, earthly love, sexuality, and even marriage without God, it all dries up, anything without God dries up. Even your ministry without God will become dry. So seek the Lord, turn your heart, your mind, and your strength back to heaven. Receive the waters of the Spirit. He will make your life and your walk come alive again as never before, because without prayer, without Him, it’s like earth without heaven.

Today’s Mission
Today, take time in God’s presence and ask Him to shower you with His life. Soak up the waters of the Spirit into your heart.
