He Has Said
For he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Have you ever made an empty promise? Has anyone ever made an empty promise to you? Maybe you’ve assured someone that you would perform a task with the best of intentions, only ending up failing to complete it? There are a lot of issues surrounding anyone assuring another of things. Often times it can be difficult to maintain trust in others even if this person has never let you down. This is because we know that at the end of the day, he or she is still a human, and will ultimately disappoint. But how should we respond to God when He makes a promise to us?
“HE has said” is a powerful statement. It should cause us to pay close attention to any following statements. When God speaks, things happen. Remember, He isn’t human. He spoke the universe into existence. I love the promise in the verse, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” It reminds me every day that no matter what we face in life God is always with us and will never leave us. Many people will let you down in life; you may let other down, its only human. But one thing we know for sure is God will never leave you nor let you down.
Dear God, I thank you that You will never leave us nor forsake us. I pray we would remember this when we face difficulties in life and when we have happiness. Thank you, amen.
