Jesus Is Standing with You 

“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) 
When you serve Christ, you are never alone; Jesus is standing with you. Isn’t that comforting? Isn’t that a great reason and reminder why we should be totally devoted to Christ? I believe so! I know it is easier said than done, especially when we are going through a tough and lonely season.   
Maybe you are walking through dark times right now, and you feel very much alone. You could be alone because of your decisions, or maybe because of decisions someone else has made. You might be alone because you are passing through a very dark time physically, financially, or relationally.  
You are not alone, because Jesus is standing with you. Make sure you stand with Him and be totally devoted to Him. Follow His agenda, not your will, but His will. You will never sense the presence of God standing with you, if you are living with your plan and what you want. This is especially true when it contradicts the Word of God.   
Many believers want to claim God’s presence; however, they don't feel His presence because they are living out of fellowship with God. Real worship happens when you give everything to Him. This means being aligned with the Word of God. You must be obedient with all your life, all your time, and all your resources. Don’t hold anything back from Jesus.  
Is that true for you? Are you aligned with that kind of obedience? If not, I encourage you not to “play church.” Don’t think you can sing the songs without backing them up with your life. Don’t pretend to be a “good Christian” on the outside, when everything is wrong on the inside. Our lives must honor the Lamb! Our goal should be to surrender our hearts to Jesus. May you live in that complete surrender today!

I keep working at walking with Jesus. People around me know there is something different about me, that I am a kind and caring person. That is only because of the love of Jesus shining through me. I falter a lot still. I know He is with me most of the time but I have times when I wonder where He is. May I listen to Him more and more all the time 🙏
