A friend challenged me to post a scripture a day on Face Book. Today is day two. Here’s my scripture:
Haggai 2:5 “My Spirit remains in your midst. Fear not.”
Let me share why I chose this scripture. I was thinking about the followers of Jesus, and how they must have felt the day after his crucifixion. Words like: disheartened, alone, and afraid came to mind.
While Jesus was with them, he warned them of the things to come, but they didn’t understand what he meant. And now he was gone. And they were left alone.
Do you ever feel that way? I know I sure have. Scriptures such as this one in Haggai, are what have pulled me through.
You see, once we place our faith in Christ, we receive His very Spirit. Colossians 2:27 says, “Christ lives in you.” If Christ is in us, then we are not alone! Whatever life throws our way, we have the promise that God is with us!
