The Never forsaking God

God always allows us to feel the frailty of human love so we’ll appreciate the strength of his. – C.S.Lewis

In Hebrews 13:5, we read God’s Words to His people: “Never will I leave you, nor will I ever forsake you.” If we’ve come to Him time and again over a burden on our hearts, He will never say, “Enough! Go tell someone else, I’m tired of hearing it. “If we have sunk so low in our depression or despair He will never say, “I just need a break from your negativity for a while.”

You and I, my friend, can know a love that will never leave. A love that never needs time away.

If you’ve experienced hurt or betrayal in your life that has prevented you from trusting someone else, I encourage you to take a closer look at the God of the Scriptures who promises in His Word that He will never leave you or forsake you. Listen to the Psalmist’s words (and my paraphrase in parentheses) of this love that will never leave — or even let you out of His sight:

"If I go up to the heavens (or if I'm top of the world and don't really need you, God), you are there;  if I make my bed in the depths (or if I sink so low that no one else wants to be around me anymore), you are there.

"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, (or, if I pack up and run to a place where no one else can find me), if I settle on the far side of the sea (if I go into my cave and wall myself off so no one can hurt me anymore), even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

"If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,' (certainly, the things I've done will make God want to have nothing to do with me), even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you" (Psalm 139:7-12).

That is passionate, pursuing love. And that is a love that you and I can experience every day of our lives, in a relationship with Christ — the only One who can truly be ever-present in our lives.

Will you begin to let Him be your Lover who never leaves? 

God Bless You!
