“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV
God is with us always…at all times, in all places and during all circumstances. If you sense God is distant, this is about how you have moved away from God not the other way around. He is center of everything for all time…we are not to be the center of our lives. God cares about you, He loves you and He promised He will never leave you.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
