Sometimes we feel forsaken, abandoned, and alone, with no genuine friends, and no family members who is not looking for a handout. Other times you are around people and you still feel alone, and just wish they would go, because they have no positive input into your life. However, God wants us to know that we should never ever feel that way, because even though we don’t see Him in the natural, He is with us, and even though He might be comforting someone else His Omnipresence affords Him the privilege of being anywhere  and everywhere at once. But, whenever you are feeling despondent, forsaken, or abandoned just pick up the good book called the Bible and allow God’s word and His promises to soak into your system, and increase your faith to the point that you find comfort in His word.

God has made many promises to us when we get into funks (or messes) like this, and we must remind ourselves of this daily. For instance He told us in the Old and New Testament that He will never leave or forsake us. It’s written in Deuteronomy 31:6 and says, “Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them (for example: people, problems, loneliness,whatever it is); for the Lord thy God, He it is who doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Then again in Hebrews 13:5 it says, “Let your manner of life be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have; for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” This was not meant for those people only, it’s meant for us today also.

Well if that didn’t make you feel better here is another in Isaiah 43:1 b to verse 2 which says, “…Fear not; for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame scorch thee.” We have evidence of God’s promises fulfilled from the parting of the red sea, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the fiery furnace, who came out without a cinch (Daniel 3:34-37). These are accounts of people who trust, rely and depended on God for everything, and He never left, forsaked or abandoned any of them as Hebrews 11 validates.

But one of my favorites is 2 Corinthians 4:7-10 which says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”

To God be the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to inform you this day. May His Holy Spirit give you the necessary tools needed to grasp and act on His words. And I by the power given to me in Matthew 18:18 and Luke 10:19, I bind the hand of the enemy and its forces, who try to steal this word, and blind your eyes, and harden your heart from receiving this truth and acting upon it. I ask God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.
