For no apparent reason life can be going smooth one moment and the next you find yourself wandering along paths that leave you whirling and wondering how you got here and when you will ever find your footing again. It’s when walking through these days and days of the unclear, hazy times that one can find themselves grappling with what is that we truly believe.
What do we know for sure?
What did Jesus think it was essential for his disciples to know for sure as he was sending them out on the mission we know as the great commission?
And be sure of this:
I am with you always, even to the ends of the age
Funny how one little passage of a scripture can you cause you to pause.
Why was it so essential they knew and we know with certainty that Jesus is with us always?
In carrying out their assignment of making disciples of all nations, Jesus disciples, faced some unpleasant circumstances and outright persecution. If looking around at their situations alone, they may begin to wonder just where was Jesus in all of this.
Do you ever find yourself wondering where is Jesus in all of your stuff?
We can’t always trust our feelings or our circumstances as proof of Jesus presence. We humans long for that which we can see, hear, or touch. Yet we are called to faithfully know the He is there with us as much in our wanderings as He is when the path feels straight and clear.
He is there always, my friend.
Of that let us be sure.
