At one time or another, we have all had the painful experience of being forsaken.
Maybe it was someone you thought was your friend, only to find them saying hurtful things about you to others. Maybe it was a co-worker or business partner that stabbed you in the back. Perhaps it was a spouse who was unfaithful, or simply decided they wanted out your marriage. Whatever the situation when you are forsaken, it cuts to the very core of your being.
The emotional trauma of being forsaken can last a lifetime and make it difficult to trust others. If you are not careful, you create a wall around your heart where you let few people in.
God Will Never Forsake You
Though some may forsake or forget you, God has promised that he will never forget or turn His back on you. Though everyone else may turn on you, God will always be there for you.
God made this same promise to the great leaders of the Bible. He promised Moses, Joshua, David, and Solomon, just to name a few. These men did mighty things for God because they knew He would be with them.
But God also made the promise to a young prodigal who left his family and lived a life of sinful pleasure. God met this young man on the backside of a pig farm and reminded him of a father who would never forget or forsake him.
God has promised never to forsake you.
You may have been hurt in the past, but God will never leave you. You can do mighty things for the kingdom because God will be with you.
Even if you have slipped away from the Lord, He is willing and ready to welcome you back home. He has never forsaken you, even when you rebelled against Him.
If you are lonely today, run to the one who has never, and will never forget you. If you have been hurt by others, run to the God who has promised to always be with you.
Look at that promise again.
Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you. – Hebrews 13:5
Make this confession.
God will never leave me or forsake me.
God can use me because He is with me.
No matter what I do, God will never forsake me.
I am never alone because God is with me.
