“ . . . lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20, NKJV)
What a blessed assurance this is, that no matter where we go, what we do, or what we go through, Jesus is always with us. His promise is that He will never leave or forsake us.
You know, loneliness is a spiritual attack that comes against many of us. Many people have done many hurtful things to themselves and others in an attempt to combat feelings of loneliness. Depression and isolation are a few symptoms of a lonely heart. But we do have a weapon to ward off the feelings of loneliness. It is the word of God that reminds us of the promise Jesus made to us. He promised us he would be with us “Always.” This, my brothers and sisters, is your blessed assurance. This is your weapon against the spirit of loneliness and isolation. You must remind yourself that God is with you. He promised, no matter what, never to leave you. You must know that no matter what you are faced with, He is always with you. This, is your BLESSED ASSURANCE.
