(NKJV) Matthew 28:20 = “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
(CEV) Matthew 28:20 = “and teach them to do everything I have told you. I will be with you always, even until the end of the world.”
(NKJV) Hebrews 13:5 = “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.”
(CEV) Hebrews 13:5 = “Don’t fall in love with money. Be satisfied with what you have. The Lord has promised that he will not leave us or desert us.”
Be content with what you have; for God Himself has said, “I will never, never let go your hand: I will never, never forsake you.” Be free from the love of money, content with such things as you have, for he has said, “I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you.” some people don’t believe that God’s with them. He is as Close to you as your skin because He Lives in you. That means whatever your situation is He will never Let you Down –in relationships, finances, etc He will lever Let you Down
If you know that God Loves you, then you can live a fear-free life. Keep a little notebook & jot down the things That God Does for you. Know How Much God Loves you, & pay attention to every little, tiny thing that God Does do for you, but not only to what He Doesn’t Do. Many times our life is going some way that we don’t understand and we feel God Has Abandoned us, but never mind because Matt 28: 20 Tells us so, He is right with you.
Have you ever witnessed people wailing at a funeral before? Sometimes the weeping gets so intense that some people shout that they want to follow the dead wherever they would go. They cannot afford to live without them. However, I always wonder where such people are when casket is finally being lowered into the pit of death. At the crosswords of death, you go alone. One major reason for which it is dangerous to put your trust in a human being is that he or she can easily abandon you on the way. To abandon means to leave behind, desert, forsake or reject someone or something. Man can abandon you, but God never ever Abandons those who Faithfully trust in Him.
King David could boldly boast of the LORD’s Faithfulness; even to the point that he could trust God for Deliverance from Sheol (ie. hell) and the power of the grave. No wonder he intimated that, even though he went through the valley of the shadow of death, he would fear no evil, because the LORD Would be with him. God is not only with us in good times but more so in tough and challenging times. I have come to a resolute conviction that my God will never ever Leave me nor Forsake me. That is my confidence and that is my joy. Faithfulness is in His Nature; He Never Abandons those who trust in Him.
When the devil tries to torment you that; ‘you will not get; this or that, job, money , you have lost everything…etc’, get out Heb 13; 5 & read it aloud to him. God responds to His Promises than to our words, so in trouble times magnify Gods Promises to Him instead of your problem & He will Come through for you. JESUS SAID, ‘I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU. Because the Greater One Lives in you, so no fear. Get in The Word of God & renew your mind with WORD, & all fear (ie fear itself + it’s cousins, eg worry) will disappear. Another cousin of fear is shyness – so don’t say; ‘ I am shy …’ nooo, it’s the devil
I don’t know what you may be going through in this season of life. Do not allow anything or anybody to make you think that God has Abandoned you. May we grow in Faith in this Faithful God, Amen.
GOD NEVER ABANDONS US, BECAUSE HE ALWAYS LOVES US. HE EVEN LOVES THOSE WHO HATE HIM – LET US CONTINUE IN BROTHERLY LOVE, & NOT WANT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE.
Dear Lord, I’m grateful for the fact that You have never abandoned me and would never do so as long as I remain Your child. Please Help me trust You more daily for indeed You are a Faithful God,
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
