"Wherever I Go" by Dan Bremnes

“You’re my only hope. Life and death, this truth I know: Wherever I go, You’re gonna find me there. Wherever I go, You’re right beside me there. In the rising flame, even in the pouring rain, even in the flood, I’m safe.”

God keeps an eye on us wherever we go. When we get lost he finds us. He sticks close beside us. He does not get busy and forget us. He does not get distracted and lose track of us. As a loving Father he is always mindful of where we are and what we need. He is there for us whenever we need him. In rising flames, pouring rain and as the floods of life threaten to overtake us, he is with us, keeping us safe. What a comfort. What reassurance. What joy! Our God is with us wherever we go. Think of him as a constant companion who always has your best interest at heart. He rejoices with you when you make wise choices and he picks you up when you fall down. He guides you through narrow paths and wide spaces, over mountains and through the valleys of life. He is the all-knowing, supremely wise tour guide for the journey of your life. And the only guidebook you need for this journey is the Bible, his love letter to you that you can read at any moment and be encouraged. Take time to sit with him and read it. As the song says, He is your only hope!

Joshua 1:9b “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Psalm 139:7-10 “Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”

Questions: Have you ever been your own “tour guide” on a trip? Did you occasionally get lost or miss seeing something you wanted to see? What do you think about letting the Lord be your tour guide “wherever you go?”
