Joyce Meyer - You Are Never Alone
Well, thank you for joining us today on "Enjoying Everyday Life". I love to share the Word of God with people because it has changed my life and I know without a shadow of a doubt that it will also change your life.
Today I simply want to tell you that you are never alone. I want you to think about that. So many people in the world feel lonely or they feel alone. You can be in a large crowd of people and still feel alone. And a lot of people feel that no one understands them.
Do you ever feel like that? Nobody really gets me. You know, first of all, we rarely understand ourselves so I don't know why we can expect anybody else to understand us.
But one of my favorite scriptures is in Hebrews 4 where it says that we have a High Priest who understands our weaknesses and our infirmities. So when nobody else "Gets you," Jesus gets you. He understands everything about you.
And I think it's very important for us as Christians to learn that God is with us all the time. It's one of the most important messages in the Bible. And to even learn how to practice the presence of God and what that really means is to just take the time to realize that God is with you.
And I think a big transition in my walk with God came when I realized that He wasn't just with me when I was doing, quote, but that He was with me when I was in the grocery store, when I was getting ready to go to work, when I was driving in traffic.
You know, to be honest, even when you get angry and do something you shouldn't do He doesn't run and hide. He stays right with you. And you know, a lot of times, I mean, we think we're gonna hide from God when we sin.
And you know, this trying to hide from God when you sin has been around since the Garden of Eden. I mean, that's the first thing that Adam and Eve did when they sinned was they tried to go hide.
But, first of all, you can never hide from God because He's everywhere all the time and He knows everything. He even knows the things that we're gonna do wrong before we do them. I don't know about you but I'm pretty glad right now that God does not reveal everything to me that He knows about me.
Lord Jesus, please just tell me a little bit at a time. Don't give it all to me at one time because I don't think that I could take it. And so when we do something wrong we should never shrink back in fear but we should always run to God, never run away from Him.
