Never Alone!


~ I will never leave thee or forsake thee~


Of all the promises given the Christian by God, this certainly must be one of the most glorious! ~I will never leave thee or forsake thee~, our God says. And behind this beautiful statement stands the faithfulness of a God Who cannot lie. Oh, lovely assurance that, though all may leave us, our God will not!

So, let us look a little closer at this verse. Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionary says that the word “never” in the verse is a double negative strengthening the denial. Blessed God that would have us know for certain that when He says never in this verse, He means never! The words leave and forsake indicate that our God will not leave us behind in a place of suffering. He will not abandon us. He will never leave us alone, unaided to defend ourselves. He will be with us through every heartbreak, every loss, every illness, every death.

Quite frequently, I read of dear children of God who question Him during times of deep trouble. They feel alone and abandoned by God; confused and in grief. Oh, I have been there myself! Through dark night of soul and spirit, through being abandoned and betrayed, through losing health and reputation, how often I have wondered where God is, groping through the darkest of nights.

Where is He when we have been betrayed and abandoned by our best friend and lover? ~The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms~. Where is He when we know not were our next meal will come from? ~Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things~ He feedeth the fowls of the air. Are ye not much better than they? Where is He when we fear the winds of political change and the economy is failing? ~I am the Lord. I change not~ Where is He when we struggle to be free of addictions and continue to fail? ~Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy~!

Child of His love! He has not left us! He will never leave us! When all is dark about us is the time He is closest to us. The clouds are but the dust of His feet. And the day will come when we shall behold the sunshine of His love again and the earth shall sing with joy around us. We shall behold our Father’s dear face, look into our Savior’s eyes and see the gentle, tender-mercy that was always there for us.

This was so awesome. As I read your thread, the tears began falling, but soon I realized that this was not tears of bitterness, but tears of joy. How wonderfull to know that God will never leave or forsake us. He promised never to leave us!

Thank you, so much Linda and locboxx :hug:

I was not planning on writing yesterday but the Holy Spirit began giving me this message.

I have learned that if I don't write when He prompts me then I will either lose the message or it does not come forth from Him when I finally do write it.

I so needed reminding of the message, myself :rolleyes:

~ I will never leave thee or forsake thee~

Those words are so comforting and re-assuring , Ive used them myself when I was once in a horrible way and terrible fear once gripped me. Reading your devotional reminds me of what the Lord, in His great love and mercy, has delivered me from.

Thank you Coqueredbylove.:hug:


God bless you.

Thank you:hug: Several months ago, He also brought the words that He spoke to Joshua, to me ~I will not fail thee~...Oh, what precious promises from the God we can trust!
