GOD DOESN’T ABANDON HIS OWN (2)
Monday, 16 February 2015
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
When God says the same thing over and over again, it is because He knows that the probability of getting overwhelmed is high and we can easily get carried away. In the scripture above, God reassured us again that He will never leave us or forsake us. Are you currently looking at the events around you and wondering if God is still for you? I am glad to tell you that He is with you. The challenges and situations confronting you are meant to discourage you, but don’t give in to the lie of the devil.Think on the word of God. Say it to yourself over and over again. Understand that the love of God is beyond comparison.
You may not have all the answers to the questions in your heart but don’t let that make you doubt God. Sometimes God will not answer you. The fact that you are asking Him questions does not mean He will answer all of them. And when such things happen, you shouldn’t be discouraged. What you should do is trust that He is the good God who will see you through somehow. Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (KJV). You may not know how or when, but God will do what He wants to do. This should be your position. And as you maintain this position, God will show Himself to be faithful in your life.
The Bible is filled with examples of men and women who dared to believe in God, knowing that He will not abandon His own, and He came through for them. Remember Daniel and his three Hebrew friends? Remember Esther the Queen? Remember Job, who said, “Even though He slay me, yet will I trust Him”? If God did things for them, He will do much more for you. I declare to you today that you will not be discouraged. The Lord will strengthen you. You will overcome and testify in Jesus’s name.
