Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

You Don’t Have to Go It Alone

Deuteronomy 31:6- “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

 

Lunch time and recess are viewed by most students as the best part of their school day. However, do you remember how lonely those times were when your best friend was ill?

There’s probably no worse feeling in all the world than being all alone. But, the reality is that in life

Friends argue and go their separate ways.

Relatives have a “falling out.”

Couples divorce.

Father’s leave their families.

Soldiers desert their platoons.

Even in the midst of one of those circumstances, God promises that you’ll never be completely alone if you acknowledge Christ as Savior and put your trust in Him.

He’ll never leave you or forsake you.

The New Normal

8479540406_1a89fe4025Acts 22:14,15- “Then he (Ananias) said: ‘The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard.”

Things are forever changing in our world.

Foods we were told that were good for us in the past, are now reported to actually harm us. So, we change our diet.

A friend or relative requires our care. We rearrange our daily schedule to accommodate the added responsibilities.

Retirement, divorce, catastrophic illness.

All of these changes create what we now call the “new normal.”

A wedding, a new job, the birth of a baby, the purchase of our dream home—even these bring changes in routines—and we adapt to them by assimilating the new normal” into our lives.

Paul had a life-changing experience on the road to Damascus. As a result of meeting God, his life of persecuting Christians was transformed to one of preaching and defending other Christians. As a result, he often lived for months and years in prison—the Apostle Paul’s “new normal.”

When we meet Christ, our lives…relationships…desires…past habits—our very focus changes as he calls us to live a new life in Christ—our “new normal.”

But, we are not alone. The The Holy Spirit guides us through each adjustment on our way to our eternal home and the

ULTIMATE NEW NORMAL.
