What words can be spoken to encourage on a day of loss?  On a day of celebration?  On a day of  victory or a day of defeat?  What words can be offered to encourage on a day that you say good-bye to yet another loved one?  I can only offer the words of our good God:

He is EL ROI, “You-are-the God-who-sees,” exactly where you are. (Genesis 16:13)

For the eyes of the LORD [are] on the righteous, And His ears [are open] to their prayers; ” (1 Peter 3:12 NKJV)

Not only does He see you but…


But certainly, God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. (Psalm 66:19 NKJV)

Not only does He see you, He listens to you and …


“It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24 NKJV)

He knows what you are going to ask before you ever say a word and…


Likewise, the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26 NKJV)

God the Holy Spirit intercedes for us when we don’t even have the words to speak and…

God the Son prays.

It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (Romans 8:34 NKJV)


…for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9


I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isiah 41:10


“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18


 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; Psalm 91:11

 You have your own Secret Service detail to help you with any need. You cannot see them, but I guarantee they are big and not to messed with.

 I enCOURAGE you to “look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 NKJV) He endured the pain. He sees and hears you.  He speaks and prays on your behalf.  He is with you, holds you up and guards you.  There is no place you can go that He is not.  God is always there for you.

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalm 34:8 NKJV)
