YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Devotional for Tuesday February 22, 2022

Morning John 16:25-33

Noon Psalm 2

Evening John 14:15-20


There are moments in life when everything becomes darker. Joy, hope, pleasure, all fades away; and your smile vanishes… Your hands transpire anxiety and, in your eyes, a sea of sadness shows the complexity of your situation. Friends fade away, and a sense of abandonment floods our being. Similar circumstances invade our lives at every moment, and the recognition of our limitations leads us to feel insecure and helpless. Perhaps now, you are going through one of those moments, and although I do not know your situation, I would like you to remember your foundation. Hope will return when you learn that the disciples, like your friends did with you, abandoned the Lord. Your face will smile as you remember that He shares your pain, and because of the faith that God has put in your heart, you know that you are not alone. The afflictions of the righteous are countless, but we must face them with the certainty that we live and preach the gospel of The Cross and trust in a God who is faithful to His promises. Face this journey with a message of hope and peace, and when you are going through every obstacle along the way, repeat with passion: He has overcome!

Morning John 16:25-33

25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.

30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


Noon Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.



Evening John 14:15-20

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
