Absolute Assurance !!!!!!

28 Dec
Absolute Assurance !!!!!!

He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)

Several times in the Scriptures the Lord hath said this. He has often repeated it to make our assurance doubly sure. Let us never harbor a doubt about it. In itself the promise is specially emphatic. In the Greek it has five negatives, each one definitely shutting out the possibility of the Lord’s ever leaving one of His people so that he can justly feel forsaken of his God. This priceless Scripture does not promise us exemption from trouble, but it does secure us against desertion. We may be called to traverse strange ways, but we shall always have our Lord’s company, assistance, and provision. We need not covet money, for we shall always have our God, and God is better than gold; His favor is better than fortune.

We ought surely to be content with such things as we have, for he who has God has more than all the world besides. What can we have beyond the Infinite? What more can we desire than almighty Goodness.

Come, my heart; if God says He will never leave thee nor forsake thee, be thou much in prayer for grace that thou mayest never leave thy Lord, nor even for a moment forsake His ways.

    Brother Levi, I believe that throughout this year of 2014 God has proven to me like never before that He is always with me and will never foresake me. There were several situations where I would have normally reacted according to how I felt at that time, but chose not to respond at all, but rather allow God to handle it and He revealed His divinity to me every single time. So thank you for this post brother, it just sent me back to reflecting on how God has been right here with me every step of my journey in just this year alone. Thank you brother…have a wonderful day…
    LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

      Stacy, you have had a blessed 2014 and learned a major truth. I’m so thankful this has happened in your life. God is ever faithful and present. It’s a hard thing to comprehend that he is everywhere, and particularly with each of us much as He is the other. How awesome He is. May you continue to grow in grace and knowledge even more in 2015. I love you brother!

    I’ve read this over and over so many times the past day… It is indeed absolute assurance. What a sobering Christmas this has been knowing my parents are aging and feeling that fear of being left alone. But I know without a doubt that I will never be completely alone while I have God. Thanks for the reminder. I pray that your New Year is blessed!

      Heather. Im glad this was and is speaking to you about assurance. If enough times lapses we will lose loved ones. But God is always near, even within us and we must cultivate that real relationship with Him. And there is always the promise that we will be reunited with our loved ones. Youre a Sweetheart and i love your compassion for your family. Happy New Year. May God bless and comfort you and be even more real to you. Shalom!!!
