God Will Not Leave You

September 11, 2013 | Tags: ,

The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.

-Deuteronomy 31:8

God’s presence dwells with us always. John 1:14 says, “The Word became flesh and took up residence among us.” Jesus is always by your side and my side, no matter what trials or struggles we face. We can rest assured that no matter what, He is with us.

We often don’t feel that way, however. We may feel like Jesus has abandoned us, particularly when we are going through times of confusion or disappointment. But our feelings don’t always tell the truth. God tells the truth. His word does not lie, because God does not lie. He cannot lie, because truth is the very essence of His being. He is Truth. The only one who lies is Satan.

Remember to focus on God’s promises in Scripture that He will never leave you or forsake you. Thank Him today that He is carrying you through whatever it is you are facing. Right away you will feel uplifted when you acknowledge His abiding presence with you when you take His word by faith. Your faith and trust in Him pleases Him greatly. He is with you, my friend. Do not be afraid or discouraged.
