Mornings With God

Your conduct must be free from the love of money and you must be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you and I will never abandon you.”

[Heb 13:5 NET]

There is a striking word in the book of Ecclesiasticus: “Look at the generations of old, and see: did ever any trust in the Lord, and was confounded? or did any abide in His fear, and was forsaken? or whom did He ever despise, that called upon Him?”

God has said He will never leave us nor forsake us.

The word “never” is emphatic. It covers every possible condition and all circumstances. God will never, never forsake us. The closest human friendship is not absolutely sure; even a mother may forsake her child. But God’s love never fails.

Each believer in Christ is sure of a place all his own in the heart of the Redeemer.

“Drooping, we journey on alone,

We only mark the heavy stone:

We do not see the helping love

Which moves before us as we move,

Which chides our faithless, vain dismay,

And rolls for us the stone away.”
