Reflections: God is with his Children come what may Come

Text reads reflections God is with his children come what may come. There is an outline of mountains on a dark background. Text is in white.

Today I want to share a song that has really encouraged me this month. It reminds me that God is with me no matter what I face.

I remember the story in the book of Daniel when his friends were faced with worshiping an idol or being thrown into a furnace but they chose to obey God. The king saw an extra person in the fire and that was Jesus Christ protecting them. The men that threw Daniel’s friends into the fire died due to the heat but Daniel’s friends did not even smell like smoke.

I love this story so much and it always encourages me when I read it. I hope this song reminds you that you have a faithful friend in Jesus Christ.

God is with his children come what may come.

The hymn “Blessed Assurance” has always been one of my favorite songs. The lyrics were written by Fanny Crosby. She happened to be blind but that was never an obstacle for her when it came to writing powerful hymns.

This hymn gives me such peace as it reminds me that I have the assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ. I can have complete joy in this. Salvation is obtained by faith in Jesus Christ.
