One thing you can be certain of: God will never give up on you. Never. He will always keep his promises. No matter of what you do or have done God has not changed his offer for you. You can choose to leave but God will not go away and leave you.
God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that. (1 Cor. 1:9, MSG)
God’s promises give us strength to go on. No matter how difficult your life is now: God is there. No matter how desperate you feel: God is there. God is there with you and for you. He will never let you go. He will never give up on you. So hang on there. Don’t give up because God does not give up on you!
Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations.(Deut. 7:9, MSG)
God’s love and care for us are astonishing. God wants to have a real, living relationship with us. Christ has made this connection possible for us. Our responsibility is to say ‘yes’ to God’s invitation, open our hearts and minds to Jesus and let the Holy Spirit create in us a new spirit.
“Abide in Me says Jesus. Cling to Me. Stick fast to Me. Live the life of close and intimate communion with Me. Get nearer to Me. Roll every burden on Me. Cast your whole weight on Me. Never let go your hold on Me for a moment. Be, as it were, rooted and planted in Me. Do this and I will never fail you. I will ever abide in you.” (J.C. Ryle)
Yes, dear God, yes!
Come and abide in us!
We cast our burdens on you.
Take care of us.
Give us strength to hang on.
Renew us inside out and
shine through us.
In Jesus’ name,
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, wherever your path is leading. Know that God is with you every step you take!
