GOD-TRACKING IS KNOWING HE IS ALWAYS – YES ALWAYS! – WITH US
“In the darkest places, our God is there. Even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, he is with us. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies.”
Romans 8:35, 37
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
The other day I interviewed a pastor called Lee for my radio show, The Reality. Lee had been admitted to hospital because he was infected with Covid-19 coronavirus. He was very ill, and, for a short while, the medics were concerned for his life. As with any infectious disease like this, the ward he was admitted to was quarantined. Only qualified medical staff were permitted in, attired in full protective gear. The only other person permitted onto his ward was the cleaner (also dressed in protective clothing).
As expected, Lee lay in his bed feeling very forlorn and ill. He cried out to God for someone he could speak with, who might offer him some encouragement. Just then the door opened and in walked the humble cleaner. Desperate, Lee began talking to him and soon discovered that he had been a missionary to Nigeria. It tuned out this man was a deeply anointed preacher. As he mopped and cleaned, the cleaner encouraged Lee. Then he stopped and prayed for the pastor.
Lee was most encouraged after the cleaner left his isolation ward. He even began to feel physically better. Suddenly he had a craving for prawn cocktail crisps and a can of Coke, of all things. Lee chuckled to himself as he drifted off to sleep. The next morning the cleaner he’d spoken to walked past the window to his ward and gave him the thumbs up. Lee smiled and returned the gesture. Then the cleaner pushed open the door and dropped a small bag into his room. He waved and walked off. Intrigued, Lee climbed out of bed and collected the gift. His heart soared and tears warmed his eyes as he opened the bag to find an apple, a banana, a can of Coke and a bag of prawn cocktail crisps.
In the darkest places, our God is with us. Even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, he is with us. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. Nothing will separate us from his love: not tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword.
Stay strong. Keep your eyes on Jesus. And never, never give up.
God-tracking is knowing he is always – yes always! – with us
SO, DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I put my faith squarely in your protection, provision and presence
“Dear Lord God, thank you that you will never abandon us. Thank you that you are with us through the storms of life. I praise you that your presence is with us at this time. Nothing can separate us from your love and fellowship. Not calamity, not pandemics, not war, not crime, not disaster. Dear Lord, even in the thick of calamity, you know my needs and desires. I put my faith squarely in your protection, provision and presence. I surrender to your hand. Amen.”
