God is right by our side!

Jesus came to comfort Paul in the night.

In the light of day we can be bold, courageous and fearless! But the dark night brings doubts, loneliness, fears, and weariness which the enemy is quick to use to his advantage. And it was in this dark time that Jesus came and stood by Paul…as He stands with us too.

Paul was in prison before and he was also delivered out of the prisons. But this time, Jesus came to Paul right there in the jail cell. Jesus knows where we are at all times. He doesn’t lose track of us, He doesn’t take His eyes off of us when we turn the corner.

When we are faced with challenging times like Paul was, we may pray that God get us out. Now. Please. But this verse shows that God wants to be with us right in the middle of our circumstances. He wants to meet us in whatever we are facing. He never leaves us nor forsakes us. Remember that. He’s right there.

In their meeting, Jesus tells Paul to be of good cheer. He’s telling Paul to be of good courage and continue on. Prison may be a setback but it’s not going to be the end of Paul mission.

Whatever you may be facing today, be of good cheer. Remember that God is still on His throne. God still promises that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28)

Anyone can be of good cheer when things are going right. But as believers in Christ Jesus, we can be of good cheer when everything is in chaos because we know our God is mighty and He is right by our side! ❤️
