His presence was gone. They felt empty, anxious and alone. The only time when Jesus would not be available to them. So then, imagine the warmth and joy they felt when He appeared with a promise – He would be with them … always.
How do you deal with your circumstances? Is there a way you can be still in His company and gain His peace?
God, teach us to live in the secret of your presence.
