God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote, God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me? Hebrews 13:5-6, The Message. God will never walk off the job. He can’t. It would be against who He is. He is everything good: love, compassion, beauty, awesomeness, loyal, forgiving, amazing. Get the picture? No one on earth can compare. Even if you have a perfect love relationship on earth, it still does not come close to what God is. Therefore, He can be trusted, believed in, hoped in, relied on, clung to and hidden in to name a few. You can add more and we would have an endless list of positives. He is our Mighty Rock! Our Half Dome – just breathe it in!
Whatever ails us today, God has an Rx for that. Take distress for instance. God understands our stresses. Just read the following quote and take heart!
“In all their distress he too was distressed” (Isa. 63:9). We can know that in our distress God too is distressed. Jesus understands heartbreak, betrayal, abandonment, loneliness, sorrow, and pain. He is acquainted with grief. He cares. He cares for you.
God promises, “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Heb. 13:5). The original Greek is difficult to translate because of the strong emphasis on never—it’s a triple negative. God wants you to know that you will never, never, never be abandoned by him. Ever. Never ever. He promises to never leave you or forsake you no matter what you’ve done or what you are suffering. We hold on to that.”
With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God! Psalm 62:7
