God is with people every time. There is no situation or con-dition a person finds him-self or herself that He is not with the person. When a person is in sorrow or crying or happy God is with the person. God is with the baby in the womb before the baby is born.
Some will say God has for-saken them because of the unpleasant situation or condition they find themselves.
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “There is time for every-thing, and a season activi-ty under the heaven, a ti-me to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot; a time to kill and a time to heal a time to tear down and a time to build; a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a ti-me to dace…” What the Bible portion is pointing out is that God knows every time. Imagine how unborn babies in the wo-mb feeds, excretes, and breath and live.
Brethren, it was about 10 years ago I knew that ba-bies are the ones that su-ffer most. They are sub-jected to different kinds of situation and they can-not complain about the condition they are until the condition is unbearable for them, then they cry out. This situation conti-nues until they attain the age they can talk. During this period God was with them.
If God was not with them then the babies may not survive till maturity time. Even when they are matured, God continues to be with them. Old peo-ple suffer like the babies. Many people do not know God is with them. When people are facing pro-blems, they always think God is not with them. There is no way God will forsake anybody.
Imagine Cain, God was with him and put a mark on him so that Cain would not be killed despite the fact that he killed his brother, Abel. Genesis 4:15-16 “But the Lord said to him, Not so if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven time over.
Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one found him would kill him.“ When a person sleeps deeply, who wakes him or her up? It is God. Eventually if God does not wake the person up, he or she may not again. Some people have lost hope because their par-ents are no more; they should know that God is there for them. For exam-ple I lost my parent at a very tender age but God has been with me since. Even a person that is dead has God with him or her.
Late Obafemi Awolowo is being remembered in death. Why? It is because God is with him in death. Similarly Jesus is being re-membered. So God is with everybody and peo-ple should understand. God is with people who do evil. God asked Cain whereabouts of his bro-ther Abel. He replied Lord that he did not know.
And said was he Abel’s keep-er? Similarly God is with those that are doing good. Jesus recognized the people that are doing good to their neighbours when He said all they did for their neighbours was done for him. It is imper-ative for people to know that whatever the situat-ion God is with them. God establishes it that HE owns the good and the bad.
