“I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too—your reassuring presence, coming and going.” (Psalms 139: 5, Message Bible)
God, the Almighty One, has our backs. He is our reliable protection and companion through each day. He is leading us ahead with wisdom and strength, and also assuring that we can leave yesterday behind with confidence and freedom.
There has never been a place, time, or experience where God has left us alone. He accompanies us in all that we are and all that we do. God is Love—the very Love that is with us and in us. He is the goodness that is the very substance of who we all really are.
You can trust that God is cleansing past mistakes, restoring harmony where it seems lost, cleaning up the mess, without a trace, that we may believe preceded this moment. We can walk into this new day with innocence and readiness. If we look behind us all that is truly there is God, the perfect good, the right Mind and Life.
Likewise, as we head forward into the seeming unknown, we have no reason for fear. Up ahead is the One that we know well and Who knows us: Divine Love, our own Father-Mother-Life. So there is a familiar face in our new day, walking with us step by step, beckoning us onward. Our infinite God has cased the area, made it ready for us, and rolled out the red carpet for our perfectly-timed entrance!
