There is so much uncertainty in this world we live in. The rising costs of gasoline and groceries and the increasing division and violence around us are enough to make anyone wonder, where is God in all this? 

Sometimes, we all need a reminder that we are not alone. Even if you do not have someone physically right next to you, the Bible tells us that God is with us. In fact, He has promised to never leave us and to never abandon us and He has promised to be with us always, even to the end of the age (See Hebrews 13:5-6 and Matthew 28:20).  

When you feel the most alone, the most forgotten, the most abandoned, the most rejected, the most unloved, God is there. When you are fearful of what is unknown or even of what is known, God is there, and He knows all about it.  

What a relief it is to know that God is with us and that He is near to us no matter where we are and no matter what we are going through.  

We thank you, O God! We give thanks because you are near. People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds. (Psalm 75:1 nlt)

Regardless of what is going on around us, we can give thanks because God is with us. He hears us when we pray, and He knows what we need before we even speak it. In a world full of uncertainty, He is an unshakeable God.  

When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil, I am the one who keeps its foundations firm. (Psalm 75:3)

He alone is our solid rock and firm foundation. When trouble comes, we can give thanks and look to Him because He is with us, and He is immovable. He knows what is going on and He is not changed or overwhelmed by it. When we are faced with uncertainty, we can be certain that God is right there. He is in our midst, and He is waiting for us to come to Him to rest and lay our burdens down at His feet.   

In my own life, when I have found myself discouraged by what I see going on around me, I have found encouragement in time spent alone with Abba Father. When I am overwhelmed, spending time in prayer and in worship and sitting in His presence brings so much peace and strength and it is always exactly what I need in that moment.  

Friends, we were never meant to carry the weight of this world alone. As we take the time to lay our fears and the worries of the day at the feet of Jesus, that weight is lifted from us. God is entirely faithful and as we trust in Him to come through for us, He strengthens us and takes care of us.  

Whatever fears and worries you are carrying with you today; I encourage you to lay them at the feet of Jesus. If you are overwhelmed and discouraged by what is going on in the world today, come and find rest at the feet of Jesus. He is waiting for you with open arms, and He loves you so very much. Will you pray with me? 

Father God, the weight of this world tries to drag me down and sometimes I find myself discouraged and overwhelmed by it. God, I believe that You are entirely faithful, and nothing is impossible for You. Lord, I surrender these burdens that I have carried for far too long to You and I trust You to come through for me because You love me. Lord, thank You for never leaving me or forsaking me. Thank You for being my solid rock, my firm foundation, and my unshakeable God. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen. 

But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob (Psalm 75:9).
