Genesis 18:2 reads “And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,” The text reads that Abraham ran to meet these three men, but did you notice, how the verse reads that these three men stood by him, when he lifted up his eyes and looked.
Many a times, we run to God as if he is somewhere far away, while all the time, he is right there standing by you and me. When we look with eyes of faith, we see that the Lord is standing right by us.
Points to ponder:
No matter where you are in your life or what the situations of your life are, you and I can take solace in the fact that the Lord is standing by you and me, all the time. He has promised to be with us even unto the ends of the age (Matthew 28:20); to never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 11:5); and God is standing by (you).
Genesis 18:2 (KJV)
2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
