“For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth”1 Corinthians 1:26.
“You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me”Psalm 139:5.
“It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed”Deuteronomy 31:8.
(This word was given for a particular person, but I believe that it is also for many. For many of us have walked down roads thinking that we were always alone or forsaken. But the Lord has been there always walking beside us.)
“For as much as I came into this world to save men and women, I came to seek and save the lost. Not many of you were of noble birth. Not many of you came from a regal past. Very few were kings and queens. But I chose the things that man did not recognize. I came and chose my own.
I say this day, ‘You are chosen by me.’ For in years past you wandered alone. But I say even now, ‘You are never alone.’ For there have been many lonely roads that you have traveled. But see, that I have walked there beside you.
For the lonely roads were not meant to be lonely. For you didn’t know that I was always there with you. You walked thinking you were always alone. For I was alone when I walked this earth. I walked in places where no man had tread before. I was led to the slaughter and I thought that I was utterly forsaken. I thought that the Father had forsaken me. But I was never alone, even on the cross. For even though my life was cut off from the living, I was given a new body and life for many. I had thought that the Father had forsaken me, but he hadn’t.
So you see, I have gone before you. I understand the journey that you are on. And even during those times when you feel utterly alone and forsaken, remember me and what I went through for you. And then you will be raised up with me. Then you will see me on the road with you. Then you will realize that I walked many of these roads with you.”
