As I sat down to spend some time with Jesus today a verse popped into my head. I wrote it down and was going to move on but I decided I should look it up and see if there was any particular reason why it was in my mind. The verse was, “I am with you, even until the end of the age.” Matt 28:20
I went back and read a good portion of that chapter as different things popped out at me and I needed more context, and I felt really impressed to bring them here and share them. It’ll be quick, I promise.
This passage comes just after Jesus has risen from the dead. In 28:16 it says that the disciples went to the mountain where Jesus said they would find Him, and He was there. In the earlier passages Mary and Martha are instructed twice to tell the disciples where to go in order to find Jesus. They obeyed, they went, and Jesus was where He said He would be.
I have so many loved ones struggling through what seem like insurmountable odds right now in their personal lives. There is so much pain and heart ache around me, and I often struggle with how to encourage my friends in ways that aren’t cliche or straight up lame. As so many often ask, “Jesus, where are you?” this morning I want to encourage you with this truth:
So the question then is this: Where did He tell you to meet Him? If you don’t have an answer for that, then I encourage you to find a quite space and seek the answer, and then seek Him there, because He is always where He says He will be, and He is with you, even until the end of the age.
If I can pray for you in any way, I would love to. Please leave a comment below or email me: juliewritesbooks at gmail dot com
