#4138 – Always Present

Good morning people God never leaves or forsakes

Exodus 17:1-7 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, travelling from place to place as the LORD commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. So they quarrelled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the LORD to the test?” But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?” Then Moses cried out to the LORD, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.” The LORD answered Moses, “Walk on ahead of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. And he called the place Massah and Meribah because the Israelites quarrelled and because they tested the LORD saying, “Is the LORD among us or not?”

We still often question if God is with us when He doesn’t seem to meet our needs or at least do it how we think it should be done and when it should be done. Our thinking often limits us when it comes to God’s ways.

Also, we tend to gravitate towards the negative. Let’s be honest. It’s easy to forget what God has done before. It’s easy to focus more on the natural and what we are experiencing rather than focusing on the supernatural and what God is capable of. It’s easier but it’s not the best way to live.

You see God promises to never leave us or forsake us. God is present even when we don’t feel Him or see Him as we expect. When God doesn’t meet our “needs” as we expect, it doesn’t mean He has lost control, not at all. Is God among us? Absolutely. Right here, right now – right where you are at, God is there, and He promises to always be with you.
