“The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31:8).
Verses of promise display God’s sovereign power and providential timeliness in ways you may not have yet realized. Psalm 55:22 was a verse of promise that ministered to me greatly as a twenty-one-year-old new believer. The things I thought were so burdensome at that season in life seem laughable now in the light of what life would later have in store. Who knows, in the providential purposes of God, what was once the favorite verse of your naive adolescence may be the very promise that sustains you in the brokenness and frailty of your later years. The Lord truly goes ahead of you.
