I will never leave you nor forsake you!
(James Smith, “The Pastor’s Morning Visit” 1840)
“God Himself has said: I will never leave you nor forsake you!” Hebrews 13:5
The Lord’s redeemed people are never alone!
God is with them as an Observer. He notices their . . .
every thought,
every word,
every action,
every trial,
every foe,
every danger.He is with His people . . .
as a Father — loving and holding communion with them;
as the Lord Almighty — having all power to help them;
as a Guide — to wisely lead them;
as an Advocate — to plead their cause;
as a Friend — to supply and comfort them;
as a Savior — to deliver and protect them;
as a holy, sin-hating God — to purify them!He is present with them . . .
to preserve them,
to comfort them, and
to save them with an everlasting salvation!Beloved, let us remember that God is with us —
everywhere and always! …If God is with us thus — then He is for us! And if God is for us —
then who can effectually be against us?
“So be strong and courageous! For the LORD your God goes with you;
He will never leave you nor forsake you!” Deuteronomy 31:6
