Where to turn I’ve written before about how to jog our memory about God’s goodness in those moments when we forget…

But it seems to be an on-going struggle for so many of us.

There are times where I hear about a situation, or when I’m dealing with something of my own, and I ask, “Is God here?”

If you can’t think back to an experience of your own — of a personal encounter of your own — that you’ve had with Jesus Christ, when you remember He showed up, when you remember His presence and action and mercy and love, then the next place to turn — quite literally — is towards the Bible. And towards the stories that answer that very question with a loud & overpowering yes.

Yes, He is here. 

Where to turn (recommendations from my friends!):

Psalm 46:10

“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.’”

James 4:8

“Come near to God and he will come near to you.”

John 15:5

“’I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.’”

Deuteronomy 31:6

“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.”

Psalm 8

“What is man that thou art mindful of him, or the son of man that thou visitest him?”

Psalm 139 

“You examine me and know me, you know when I sit, when I rise, you understand my thoughts from afar. You watch when I walk or lie down, you know every detail of my conduct. A word is not yet on my tongue before you, Yahweh, know all about it.”

Matthew 28:20b

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Isaiah 41:10

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Jeremiah 29

“Yes, I know what plans I have in mind for you, Yahweh declares, plans for peace, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. When you call to me and come and pray to me, I shall listen to you.”

Which passages would you add to the list?
