Read (from the New Living Translation)
8 Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Josh from The Afters has had a tough year. But one story of God’s presence in the midst of pain stands out. This is so cool…
He says, “We saw God work in some really incredible ways. Even seeing him and his fingerprints all over our lives, even in the midst of sadness. Our sound guy… he and his wife lost their daughter at birth. It was completely unexpected… Her name was Pieper…”
“We wrote a song… it’s called ‘Battles.’ And it’s about this very thing that God goes before us… that there’s nothing and that there’s nothing we’ll ever face in this life we can’t make it through with the power of God on our side.” You can listen to the song here!
Notes from the Beyond Suffering Bible
Christian Life – Life can be hard, and circumstances can be unflinchingly difficult. But just as God told Joshua, God tells us that we need not despair. God is with us and goes ahead of us in every danger and challenge we face. Nothing can take him by surprise or catch him off guard. What good news to know that God will never abandon those who trust in him alone!Complete This Reading
