Lord teach me today the restfulness of your presence. Help me surrender to you the difficulties allowed to impact my life, and to realize these are not for me to fix or problem solve. These are opportunities to draw upon your loving presence and peace as you direct me. This is the difference between letting our flesh lead and letting the Holy Spirit lead. I am not Alone and you promise to never leave me or foresake me. I choose to rest today in your loving presence. Read on as Sarah Young directs our perspective and though life today.
My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. — Exodus 33:14
You Are Never Alone
by Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
You are Mine for all time; nothing can separate you from My Love.
Since I have invested My very Life in you, be well assured that I will also take care of you. When your mind goes into neutral and your thoughts flow freely, you tend to feel anxious and alone. Your focus becomes problem solving. To get your mind back into gear, just turn toward Me, bringing yourself and your problems into My Presence.
Many problems vanish instantly in the Light of My Love, because you realize you are never alone. Other problems may remain, but they become secondary to knowing Me and rejoicing in the relationship I so freely offer you.
Each moment you can choose to practice My Presence or to practice the presence of problems.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38–39
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” — Exodus 33:14

We humans have the tendency to practice the presence of problems. We go over troubles in our heads over and over. Jesus invites us to actively choose to practice His Presence instead. He is with us! And He will give us rest from our troubles!
