Jesus Will Not Forsake You
DEUTERONOMY 31:8 NASB 8 "And the LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear, or be dismayed."
Here is my favorite translation of Hebrews 13:5, done by a professor of Greek, who indicated that to understand what the verse says in the Greek, it would have to be translated like this:
HEBREWS 13:5 WUEST 5 Let your manner of life be without love of money, being satisfied with your present circumstances. For He himself has said, and the statement is on record, I will not, I will not cease to sustain and uphold you. I will not, I will not, I will not let you down.
God's promise is He will never leave us or forsake us. Yet we may sometimes feel hopeless and helpless -- like we are facing life all alone. What is the truth?
Regardless of the circumstances, or how you feel, remember that God cannot lie. He is there to help you -- and He always will be.
Feelings are fickle. Just because you feel a certain way does not make it the truth. Yet we are all tempted at times to put our feelings above what God has said.
Of course the devil will tell you that God has forgotten you, or that you have committed the unpardonable sin, or anything to get you to doubt the Word of God, and give up on your faith. The devil is a liar and deceiver, but God is true to His Word and will never fail you.
You just need to cooperate with God so He can help you and bless you as fully as He desires. The key to this is learning the Word of God, so you will know how to cooperate and receive from God.
God's track record is perfect. He has never failed anyone. And He will never fail you.
SAY THIS: Jesus will never, never, never forsake me.
