God Goes Before Us

And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8


Father in heaven we delight and rest in the name Yahweh Shammah – Yaweh is There. We marvel that You revealed that name when Israel was rebellious and in captivity. Even then You were letting them know that You had not forsaken them. You were still there, both in the present and in their future.

We draw comfort from knowing that You are never caught out by events even though we may be. You are already there ahead of us.  You are going before us, clearing the path ahead for us, providing for us, or preparing us to go through the situation.

Perhaps we feel walled in right now, restricted by health, relationship, financial, employment or unemployment issues. Days turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years and we see no glimmer of help or hope. There seems to be no way over, around or through the wall. We may wonder where You are. Have You forgotten us? Have You abandoned us? At these times remind us that You order our stops as much as our steps in life. When You seem to be doing nothing You are working in ways that we cannot see. You may be working something in us -refining our character, training us, preparing and positioning us for a future purpose.  

In spite of our circumstances or feelings, we hold fast to Your promise that You are going before us. You are with us. You will never leave us nor forsake us.

Be it unto us according to Your word. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

And not have compassion on the son of her womb?

Yet I will not forget you.

See, I have inscribed you on the palm of My hands;

Your walls are continually before Me.

For the LORD upholds him with His hand.
