137. “The one who sent me is with me” (John 8:29).
Here is the promise we are desperate to receive. The one who sent us hasn’t left us to find our own way or withstand opposition in our own strength. He is with us as well. Jesus could face whatever moment might arise because He knew that the Father was with Him. What a powerful promise and a necessary awareness for us. We should never forget that we are not serving a distant God or trying to please Him before He comes by to check our work. He is with us in every moment and will provide all we need for the life He’s called us to live.
