Here Is God - July 5, 2023

When ancient sailors sketched maps of the oceans, they disclosed their fears.  On the vast unexplored waters, cartographers wrote words such as these: “Here be dragons.” “Here be demons.” “Here be sirens.” Were a map drawn of your world, would we read such phrases?

If so, take heart from the example of Sir John Franklin. He was a master mariner in the days of King Henry V. Unlike his colleagues, Sir Franklin was a man of faith. He had crossed out the phrases “Here be dragons,” “Here be demons,” “Here be sirens,”  and in their place he wrote, “Here is God.”

Mark it down – you will never go where God is not. “I am with you always,” Jesus promised in Matthew 28:20. Don’t be afraid; just believe.
