“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Deuteronomy 31:6
Life has moments when we may feel alone and abandoned, as if God’s presence has slipped away. In these moments, doubts can creep in, and we may wonder if He is truly with us. However, it’s essential to hold onto the unwavering promise that God will never abandon us.
God’s promise is clear: He will never leave us nor forsake us. Even when circumstances seem overwhelming, God’s presence remains constant. In Deuteronomy 31:6, we are reminded to be strong and courageous because the Lord our God goes with us. This promise echoes throughout Scripture, assuring us of His steadfast companionship.
It’s during challenging times that our faith is tested. Like the disciples in the storm-tossed boat on the Sea of Galilee, we may feel as if God is asleep and unaware of our struggles. Yet, Jesus was with them all along, and He calmed the storm when they called upon Him.
God’s promise to never abandon us is not dependent on our feelings or circumstances. It’s rooted in His unchanging character. He is the God who is always present, even when we can’t see or feel Him. He walks beside us through the darkest valleys and rejoices with us on the mountaintops.
In times of doubt or loneliness, cling to Deuteronomy 31:6 as a reminder of God’s unwavering presence. Trust that He is with you, guiding, comforting, and loving you through every step of life’s journey. Even when it feels like He is distant, remember that He is closer than you think, for His promise remains true—He will never leave you nor forsake you.
