Matt.28:20 – Mounce – teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you all the days, to the end of the age.
I love the Bible. It is amazingly new each time you read it. In today’s verse in the Mounce NT we see an amazing promise. He is not only with us always, He specifically said “all of the days”. There is not a day of your life that He is not with you. If you are His, He was with you from your mother’s womb until you take your last breath of air. He was with you when you almost had a life ending car wreck, He was with you you were out in sin doing stupid death defying antics, He was with you the day you got saved, and He is with you still. He is there when all hope seems lost with your finances, He is with you when the blessings abound, He is with you in sickness and in health. There is nothing you can dream of that you will face by yourself. Here is how A. B. Simpson describes this promise.
“He comes to us each day with a new blessing. Every morning, day by day, He walks with us with a love that never tires and a blessing that never grows old. And He is with us “all the days;” it is a ceaseless abiding. There is no day so dark, so commonplace, so uninteresting that we do not find Him there. Often, no doubt, He is unrecognized, as He was on the way to Emmaus, until we realize how our hearts have been warmed, our love stirred, our Bible so strangely vivified, with every promise seeming to speak to us with heavenly reality and power. It is the Lord!
God grant that His living presence may be made more real to us henceforth. Whether we have the consciousness and evidence-as they had a few glorious times in those 40 days-or whether we go forth into the coming days as they did most of their days to walk by simple faith and in simple duty, let us know this fact always, that He is with us….”
You may say I know He is there, it just doesn’t seem like it. That’s where the Holy Spirit comes in, turn to Him in worship and before you know it this promise will burn in your heart, “I am with you all of the days”!
