The blue of heaven is larger than the clouds

The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”) -Matthew 1:23

Learn to enjoy life more. Relax remembering that I am God with you. I crafted you with enormous capacity to know Me and enjoy My Presence. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

  • God is always with me- ever present- always here.

If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth.” -Ecclesiastes 11:3

The blue of heaven is larger than the clouds. How can we have rain without clouds? Our troubles have always brought us blessings, and they always will. They are the dark chariots of bright grace. These clouds will empty themselves before long, and every tender herb will be gladder for the shower. Our God may drench us in grief, but He will refresh us with mercy.  -Streams in the Desert

  • God is always with me and His mercy refreshes me.

Suppose God has brought you up to a crisis and you nearly go through but not quite, He will engineer the crisis again, but it will not be so keen as it was before. There will be less discernment of God and more humiliation at not having obeyed; and if you go on grieving the Spirit, there will come a time when that crisis cannot be repeated, you have grieved Him away. But if you go through the crisis, there will be the paean of praise to God. Never sympathize with the thing that is stabbing God all the time. God has to hurt that thing that must go. -Oswald Chambers

  • God is always with me, refreshing me with His mercy, and equipping me to go through the crisis completely.

Listen to My voice, and do according to all which I command you; so you shall be My people, and I will be your God.” -Jeremiah 11:4

The Sovereign of the universe has all the power to meet every single need you have, to answer your prayers, and to give you direction. He’s willing to speak if you’re willing to listen. God never speaks in a way that contradicts His word. The Christian life is serious business. You cannot live it apart from the work of the Holy Spirit. -Walking With God, Life Principle #13

Tempted by Satan in the wilderness, Jesus modeled how to be victorious in spiritual conflict: by means of Scripture. God’s Word gives us everything we need to win—from offensive and defensive weapons (Eph. 6:10-17) to the proper perspective on our adversaries’ real identity: “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the . . . spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (v. 12). -Dr. Charles Stanley

  • God is always with me, refreshing me with His mercy, and equipping me to go through the crisis completely. God’s Word is my direction and the Holy Spirit my guide.
