GOD BE WITH YOU!


The closing song for this morning's service was this ... and even though that was not my first time of singing it, either alone or at church with the brethren, I found myself thinking deeply about what it means to say 'God be with you' to someone prior to either a short term or a long term parting. I could say that 'God protect you' or 'God grant you happiness and prosperity', or 'God grant you peace', or ... I could wish for more specific things that I wish God to grant you to keep you well till we meet again. However, if I say 'God be with you', it is like putting all those together as one. 'God be with you' means wishing you all the good things, both spiritual and physical, that God can give you because He is 'with you'.

But one thing I remembered also was that 'Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning' (James 1:17).

Whatever good thing that I may wish for you will come from the Father; and if I wish Him to be with you then you stand to benefit from all the good stuff that He gives, not just some...!
 

 

God is our peace...
God is our protector...
God is our banner...
God is our provider...
God is our maker...
God is our ...

Endlessly ... God is everything good that we can think of...
So I say ... God be with you now and always...
And you may sing along with me again and again...

1. God be with you till we meet again,
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.

Refrain:

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

2. God be with you till we meet again,
'Neath His wings securely hide you,
Daily manna still provide you,
God be with you till we meet again.

3. God be with you till we meet again,
When life's perils thick confound you,
Put His arms unfailing round you,
God be with you till we meet again.

4. God be with you till we meet again,
Keep love's banner floating o'er you,
Smite death's threat'ning wave before you,
God be with you till we meet again.
