“Jesus taught us who God is.” – a very wise believer.
If you are going through a challenge right now, let me assure you that God is in this experience! He is within you as sustaining strength and calming peace. He is within you as the light of wisdom and perfect guidance. He goes before you as gentle protection and tender love. He is the very substance of supply for your need, the very essence of good that will emerge from the difficulty. God is in this experience!
Trust God’s plan for you. Place yourself and all those concerned under His protective Spirit of love. Visualize yourself, everyone, everything, surrounded by light and love. Take time apart from outer activities each day to rest from all conscious reasoning about the situation. Remind yourself patiently: God’s plan is good. I trust it. He is in full control of the experience. You will feel a wonderful calm within, and you will see new ways of help opening up.
When Jesus calmed the waves it was through His inner knowing that God was there as peace. When he healed the lame and blind and lifted the multitude to life and health it was because He saw the presence of God there as life. … Knowing this brought him triumphantly through Gethsemane and the Crucifixion and into our lives today as an ever-resurrecting presence and power. And what he knew then he wants us to know today: God is in every experience of life.
He is ready to open up the gates of heaven for you to see the Truth about yourself, which is that you are His beloved, His image and likeness, able to cope, to overcome, to move victoriously through every happening.

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep, and exclaimed:
“THE EVER-LIVING is certainly is in this place, and I knew it not.…
Is not this truly the House of GOD? and this the Gate of Heaven?”
