The Promise of God’s Presence and Help

“[Hebrews 13:5] I will never allow you to be without help in trouble. God’s presence is the only thing that can remove fear. We stand in no less need of the special presence and help of God than Joshua did. In speaking thus to Joshua (Josh. 1:5), God expressly declares how He will deal with all believers, in whatever circumstances He calls them to. The faith of all believers in all times need the same support and encouragement as Joshua. Although circumstances are different, all believers need the same promises. The grace, love, and mercy of God in them remain the same.” –John Owen “Hebrews” Vol. 7 p. 414-415 (as summarized by Michael Stohlmeyer)

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
