“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
By: Marcia Boxill
When a little child is taken to school for the first time, it can be a terrifying experience! The little one tightly grips the hand of his parent not wanting to let go. He may even cry because he is afraid of mommy leaving him in a strange place. Similarly for us, when we find ourselves in strange situations, we may feel as if we are being left alone but God has promised: I will be with you!
God has promised that He will never leave you or forsake you. He just won’t do it. Even when we misbehave a little, He goes no where. If you look into His word, you will see how He was with Moses, with Joshua, with David and so many others. He walked with them along their journeys loving them, correcting them, guiding them, assuring them, blessing them and bringing them through every challenge they faced as they trusted in Him. My friend, God will do the same for you. Only believe.
Have faith in your great God, understanding that you are never alone. He walks with you. He is always right there, even when you can’t feel Him near. He knows everything about you and He loves you. You can walk with confidence in God’s word. He has made you a promise to never leave or forsake you and He will keep it! God’s word is good.
