He stays.

“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 or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

This morning, as I got my family ready for church I had to stay behind with my daughter who caught Covid from a classmate at school. And as my son was heading out of the door, he asked, mommy you’re not coming? I said, “No, I’m staying home with my daughter. I don’t leave you when you’re unwell.” Right at that moment the Lord began to speak to me. He said, “I do not leave you when you’re unwell. I’m not like man. I don’t leave when you’re not at your best, or when you’re down and can’t get back up. I don’t leave when you’re not acting like yourself. I stay. While everyone leaves, I stay. I am a very present help in your time of trouble to nurse you back to health. I stay to get you back on on your feet and strong again. I meant it when I said, I am with you always even until the end of the age.”

As a mother, if I refuse to leave my children when they’re unwell, how much more our Lord. Praise God, I’m tending to my daughter, and she is healing beautifully but I want us to be encouraged today. The Lord is there and He is our ever present help. He never leaves when we’re unwell.

He stays.

Prayer: Glory to God! Father, we thank you for ministering to our hearts today. We pray you minister healing to anyone who is unwell. Touch their body and cause your healing power to flow, removing all symptoms of sickness and disease from them. Thank you Lord that you are our healer. You are with us always to care for us and help us. We pray for anyone who’s caring for the sick and shut-in. Strengthen them Lord and help them be what they need to be for their loved ones. We love you and we praise you, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalm 46:1; Matthew 28:20)

  5. I broke my right dominant hand 🀚🏽 a week ago. The one friend I thought would be by my side to assist abandoned me during my time of need. I keep meditating on “He will never leave me nor forsake me.” Jehovah Rapha–Healer–is my rock and strength! I’m also reminded to “forget not His benefits.” (Psalm 103:2) God is so so good and faithful! πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½β€οΈ
