Turning Point; David Jeremiah – Big Promises: The Promise of Presence

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5

 Recommended Reading: Deuteronomy 31:6

Eagles usually build their nests high in the branches of a tall tree. In the winter, when icy rain, sleet, or snow falls, the parents and eaglet(s) are left exposed. In such weather, one of the parents will gather the baby eagle(s) under their wings and provide shelter through the storm.

On our own “stormy nights,” God is with us. The apostle Peter reminded his readers that it is possible to love, worship, and follow the Lord whom we have never seen (1 Peter 1:8). Peter may have been remembering Jesus’ words in John 20:29: “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” We sometimes think that because we can’t see the Lord, He cannot meet our needs. But Paul wrote that the One who gave us His Son will surely meet all our other needs (Romans 8:32). The best way to be assured of God’s presence is to be in His presence daily through prayer, Bible study, and worship.

Read and pray a promise of God today and be reminded of His presence with you.

Anxious care is out of place in a heavenly Father’s presence.
