A Light for My Path Devotional

Moment by Moment

HEBREWS 13:5 (NKJV)
I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5 has always been one of my favorite verses. I think of it often, and it never fails to bring me comfort and assurance, as well as courage and strength, no matter where I find myself in life. I know that in every joy and victory, He’s right by my side, but the real blessing is in knowing that through every trial, every burden, and every sorrow, I am under His care. More than a century ago, a song writer captured those thoughts in an old hymn.

Moment by Moment

Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;
Living with Jesus, a new life divine;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a trial that He is not there,
Never a burden that He doth not bear,
Never a sorrow that He doth not share,
Moment by moment, I under His care;

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a heartache and never a groan,
Never a teardrop and never a moan;
Never a danger, but there on the throne,
Moment by moment, He thinks of His own.

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a weakness that He doth not feel,
Never a sickness that He cannot heal;
Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,
Jesus, my Saviour, abides with me still.

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

–Daniel W. Whittle, 1840-1901

Prayer: Lord Jesus, what comfort there is in knowing that I am never, never ever, alone! You are my healer, my helper, my keeper every moment of every day. For this I am deeply grateful.

Words to Ponder: Under His wings, O what precious enjoyment!
There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;
Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me,
Resting in Jesus I’m safe evermore.
–William O. Cushing
