Dealing With Death, Part Two
“We Don’t Die Alone”
“…For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 NKJV.
“…and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20, NKJV.
Once we trust in Christ for salvation, our relationship with Him is restored, never to be broken again. He makes His home within us, surrounds us, walks beside us, and we become one with Him. Therefore, from that moment on, we are never and will never be alone. In Christ, God’s presence surrounds us completely.
There may be times that we don’t live as closely to Him as we should but the promise of His presence with us, found in those two scriptures, will never be cancelled. It’s a promise of God and God never breaks His promises.
There have been times when we have all experienced loneliness. I’m convinced you can feel lonely sitting in a big crowd. There may be times that satan builds walls around us to make us feel lonely. However, Jesus never forsakes us, never forgets us and never leaves us.
As we will all deal with death at some point in our life, whether it be the death of a loved one or even our own death, take some comfort that you are not alone. You will not die alone and your loved one that might have passed did not die alone either. Jesus was right there with them, holding their hand.
Be encouraged today, in knowing that you are not alone in your grief and you are not alone as you walk through the valley that you find yourself in.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4, NKJV.
