HE IS WITH ME

DAVE BRYAN


Maybe it was just a coincidence. Maybe it was on purpose. All I know is there seemed to an abundance of cars pulled over by the police in Mustang yesterday. On my way to work in the morning, I saw one. On my way to lunch, I saw two. On my way back to the church after lunch, I saw one more. And I said to myself, ‘Be careful. They’re watching you!’


Then I realized what I was saying.


All the signs, rules, and regulations were not enough for me. No, somehow I needed to know someone was aware of my driving habits to raise my level of caution and obedience. Say what you will, the mere presence of the Mustang Police Department encouraged my driving yesterday.


To put it simply, the wrong thing has a greater chance of becoming a reality when I am alone, when I think no one is watching. Consider the stories of Eve, Moses, David, and others who fell in weakness. They were alone. They found themselves in a circumstance that left them without counsel and without accountability. And it is not just others who hear the voice of temptation in the alone times; all of us are vulnerable when we think that no one is watching.


Listen to words of our Savior in Matthew 28:20, “. . . and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”


We’re not alone! Understanding His presence and living in His presence encourages me. It comforts me. And, beyond that, knowing He is present in my life keeps me accountable.


“Lord, when the voice of the enemy makes its way into my life, let me remember that I am not alone. You are with me. You are watching over me. Keep me close, Jesus. Keep me close.”


It’s a joy to be your pastor!
