Guidepost 2012…..Why do we sometimes try to go it alone in life when at every moment we have access to God?  He said: “I am with you and will keep you wherever you go” (Gen.28:15).  And He assures us: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb.13:5).

Scottish mathematician, theologian and preacher Thomas Chalmers (1780 – 1847) wrote: “when I walk by the wayside, He is along with me.  When I enter into company, amid all my forgetfulness of Him, He never forgets me…Go wherever I will, He tends me, watches over me, and cares for me.”

What a comfort to know that God is always with us – we don’t need to go through life alone!

As I travel down life’s pathway, Jesus keeps me day by day; and although the road is winding, yet, with Him I need not stray.

God’s presence brings great comfort.
