Memory Verse

Psalm 139:7-8

Where could I go to escape from your Spirit or from your sight? If I were to climb up to the highest heavens, you would be there. If I were to dig down to the world of the dead, you would also be there. (CEV)

Do you ever wonder if God is really there? We can't see him, after all. When we're alone or afraid, it can be very hard to believe that God is with us. And sometimes, when we’re sad or ashamed of something we've done, it can be very hard to believe that God would even want to be with us. How can we know that God is there?

David wrote Psalm 139 to remind himself of the truth that God never left him alone. God wouldn't be God if he couldn't be everywhere at once. But the Bible also says that God wants to be with you all the time. He wants to be with you so much that he knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13-14). Nothing, not even sin, can separate you from the love of God in Christ.

You can know that God is with you because he promises to be with you in his Word. You can know he is with you when he takes care of your needs throughout the day. And you can talk to him at any time; praying will help you know that he is with you. No matter where you hide, how far you run, or how bad you feel, God will always be there. He will never leave you nor forsake you.


Father, thank you for always being with me. Help me to see you at work in my life today. Help me to have faith that you are there.
