HE WILL NOT LEAVE US


HE WILL NOT LEAVE US

Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV) Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have.  For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

What a promise from the Bible, here in Hebrews, that God said He would never leave us or forsake us.  When I look at the word never, to me it means never.  He does not leave me when I am good or bad.  He promised me that once I receive the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus, He would never leave me.  What a comfort this is during the hard times of life!

The Holy Spirit has been given to us as our helper.  When we think of the Holy Spirit, we must always remember that He is God.  The same as Jesus is God, and God the Father is God, the Holy Spirit is God.   He is with us throughout this life to help us and make sure that we get everything that the Bible promises us.

In life, we have had many people that say they are with us no matter how tough times get, but then as soon as times get hard, we cannot find them.  But God, the Holy Spirit, is with us, and as we learn to acknowledge Him in our lives and become more God inside-minded instead of all flesh or mind-minded, we will see Him lead us more and more in our lives.

When the Holy Spirit appeared to our Lord Jesus at His baptism, He appeared as a dove, showing us that the Holy Spirit is gentle, and that He leads and does not push or try to control.  Again, He is here to help us, not do all the work for us.  We are co-partners with Him in this life to spread the Gospel and help people come to Jesus.

So today, do not ask, “Where’s God?”  Look to the Greater One inside of you and watch and see Him help you in the affairs of life.  He does not want to be a quiet partner.  He wants to be highly involved with you, and He wants to make you a conqueror through Christ Jesus.

CONFESSION: God has promised me that He would never leave me or forsake me, so I have great confidence today that He will help me in all of my affairs.
