Day 5: Ever-Present Help
…lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
Reflection: In Matthew, Jesus reassures us of His perpetual presence in the lives of believers. This promise stands as an anchor, ensuring that regardless of the temporal circumstances, Christ is a constant, abiding presence. Obedience then becomes not just a duty, but a communion with the ever-present Savior.
Illustration: It’s similar to a constant hum of a well-tuned engine in the background of a long journey, always there, reliable and reassuring. So is Christ’s presence in our lives—a dependable, comforting assurance.
Prayer: Lord, Your promise to be with us always is our steadfast comfort. In our obedience, let us sense Your presence more deeply every day. We take heart that no matter what we face, You are with us, guiding, comforting, and loving us. Amen.
