The apostle Paul said, "But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength" (2 Timothy 4:17).
Do you know what that means to have God stand by your side?
It means that the person of Jesus Christ comes alongside you in your pains and puts his hand on your shoulder.
He puts his arm around you to hold you up. He lets you lean on him when you feel wobbly. He allows your tears to fall on his shoulder.
He is an understanding friend who “sticks closer than a brother.” He will weep together with you, and he will wipe away the tears. He will help you stand up strong.
God will stand with you!
