The Presence of God / STRONGER

Clayton King said in his book "Stronger" that no one gets an exemption, but we do get a companion. There will be hard times in life, but we are not alone - God is with us.

Everybody, intuitively, wants an exemption from hard times. We want to avoid the painful things in life. Truth is, no matter if you are a movie star or a billionaire or a president, we all go through hard times.

Clayton challenges us in his book to stop looking for exemptions and start looking at our companion. That is the idea of PRESENCE.

In his hard times - losing his parents, his grandparents, preaching at 9 funerals over 12 years - he really learnt to tap into an intimacy with God that he had never known. Ironically, what broke him was also what made him to be aware of the presence of God in his life.

The biggest lesson that he had learnt was: God's presence is his greatest protection

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
