Faith and Hope that He will never leave
Deuteronomy 31: 8:- “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Here Moses is assuring Israel of the constant presence of God with them.
Israel is in a state of transition between leaders as Moses is passing the baton to Joshua.
In this passage, God is sending a message of faith and hope that He will never leave nor forsake them.
The same God who spoke to Israel speaks to us today.
Yes, His message is the same for all those who put their hope, faith and trust in Him.
Perhaps you and I are going through a difficult time that we might feel that we cannot make it through.
But remember, my dear…
The Lord is with us, He goes before us, He never leaves us, and He surrounds us with unconditional love.
Take time to rest in God’s love, and let go of fear, worry, and discouragement.
Do not fear God, HE is with us, and He cares about us.
Whatever storms God is using in our life, it’s for a reason.
Sometimes it is to strengthen us or to change us.
Whatever the reason, His promise is that He will go through it with us and He will be with us in any and every circumstance; whether hard or easy.
He knows the challenges that will face us, the obstacles that are before us.
He invites us simply to follow Him.
But remember, when we get overwhelmed, Satan is working his way to bring doubt in us for His plan for us.
Remember in Romans 8:28, it says “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
How comforting to know we can trust God with our future because He’s already been there.
He already knows what happens.
