“…when the Lord Jesus is not at the side of His saints.”“
“ALL THE DAYS” – in winter days, when joys are fled; in sunless days, when the clouds return again and again after the rain; in days of sickness and pain; in days of temptation and perplexity—as much as in days when the heart is as full of joy as the woodlands in spring are full of song. That day never comes when the Lord Jesus is not at the side of His saints. Lover and friend may stand afar; but He walks beside them through the fires; He fords with them the rivers; He stands by them when face to face with the lion. We can never be alone. We must always add His resources to our own, when making our calculations. We may always imagine we hear Him saying, as Alexander did, when his soldiers complained of the overwhelming numbers of the enemy, “How many do you count Me for?” -F. B. MEYER | The Present Tenses of the Blessed Life
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. “ – Hebrews 13:5
In the midst of winter and the muted foliage, there is an unchanging God Who never leaves us. Our hearts can get cloudy even on sunshiny, spring days, and He is still there… “on all the days.” This writing is comforting because it is true.
In our endeavors to live by faith, there are days that our prayers seem unheard, and that our individual calling seems more than we can carry out. When we forget that God is with us, we forget that He is always working, and that He has the power to enable us to fulfill His work in us.
I love the words, “All the days” in reference to the days that the Lord is with us. He is with us ALL THE DAYS! Praise be to the Lord Jesus Christ that the day never comes that He is not with us!
