“God will not fail you”. 6 Very powerful words.
Many times we face trials and tribulations in life. Life can hit us in ways that we cannot always predict or fully understand. We lose loved one’s. Spouses walks out. We go through bad financial times. We lose jobs. We experience losses. Our health may fail us. Friends betray us and we wonder why. Asking ourselves what have we done to deserve it. Are we being punished?
Job has always been one of my favorite Books in the Bible. No matter what, He knew that God will not fail him. He didn’t look at His circumstances but He knew who God was. He knew the God He served and no matter what Satan tempted him with, He still praised God.
Our faith will always be tested. Jesus never said that life will be easy or without pain but He promised to always be there for us during those times.
He promised to walk us through it even when we feel that we are all alone and can’t face another day. He is with us in the mist of everything.
To understand God and His ways are not that easy but His love for us have no end.
I don’t know your battle or what you might be facing but God has promised to never leave you.
He said: “I will never leave you nor forsake you (Joshua 1:5, NIV). For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you”(Hebrews 13:5, NLT).
Upon His return to heaven, Jesus vowed the same thing to His grieving disciples, “No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you” (John 14:18, NLT).
Not only would He return one day, but in the meantime He promised a special gift, His presence through the Holy Spirit, to His followers: That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft,” John 14:25-27 (MSG).
His Spirit is always with you. There are moments where it feels He is not there but remember that is when He is carrying you.
God loves you more than you can possibly understand. He cares about what you are going through and He wants you to know that. You don’t have to face things alone. With God all things are possible.
Never ever, will He fail you!
