A PROMISE IS A PROMISE: DON’T BE AFRAID

A promise is a promise.

Think about that. It’s got a “duh” element to it, sure. But there’s a reason this phrase has survived.

It states something very powerful.

The idea is a promise is sure. It is certain. It is what it says it is.

That is what the Lord Jesus wants you to know today and everyday for the rest of your life!

He said “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

After studying the definition of forsake, it’s clear God is saying He will never QUIT ON YOU, ABANDON YOU, TURN AWAY FROM YOU, DESERT YOU, MAROON OR STRAND YOU.

He’s always there when you need Him. He’s just calling and calling… and He can’t wait until you answer.

Just try it. Talk to Him!

He knows how you feel anyway.

But He can’t do some things for you until you give Him permission.

If you’re mad at Him, let Him know.

But whatever you do, ask Him to show Himself to you. And welcome Him into your heart.

A PROMISE IS THE OPPOSITE OF A LIE.

A PROMISE IS THE OPPOSITE OF A DISAPPOINTMENT.

And the cool thing is… the opposite of forsake is to RECLAIM (from Webster’s dictionary)!

God is waiting for you to ask Him in so He can reclaim what you’ve lost in this world.

Don’t be afraid. Just trust Him…
