The Promise of His Presence

“I will not, I will not cease to uphold or sustain you; I will not, I will not, I will not forsake someone in a state of defeat or helplessness in the midst of hostile circumstances.” 

God (Hebrews 13: 5b Greek Amplification)

“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”

Moses to all of Israel before entering Promise Land (Deuteronomy 31: 6)

“All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.”    Jesus (John 6:37)

This morning as we said goodbye to one of our precious daughters and her son returning to their European home, through tears,  we shared the lead scripture with her.  What a comfort to know that He is watching over us no matter where we are.

Scripture says that those who do not know God and Jesus, His Son, have NO HOPE and are WITHOUT GOD in a Satan dominated world system. What a stark picture that is.

What blessed promises God has given to His children; those He “has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are PROTECTED by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (I Peter 1: 3-5 Emphasis mine)

Thank you Father God and Lord Jesus for your presence in our lives at all times by your indwelling Spirit.  Bless your name!
