He Will Never Leave Or Forsake You

There are going to be some challenges in life that we are going to have to face, and those challenges may be so daunting that it will cause us to become afraid.  Once fear sets in the challenge becomes even more difficult, and the thought of giving up sinks in because it does not look like we can overcome the obstacle that we are facing.  It is in the midst of challenges and fear that we must remember that what we are facing, we are not facing alone.  Our friends and family members may not be there for us, but we are not alone because The Lord is always with us.  

The Scripture reminds us to, be strong and courageous.  Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.  He will not leave you or forsake you.  I encourage you today to remember that whatever you are going through you are not going through it alone, because The Lord your God is with you.  When challenges look insurmountable and obstacles seem un-crossable, that is the time to remember to be strong and courageous.  Do not allow fear to overcome your faith as you remember that The Lord your God goes with you, and when The Lord is with you He will not leave you or forsake you.  When trouble arises The Lord is there.  When friends are few, The Lord is there.  When the storms are raging and the lightening is flashing, The Lord is there.  When you do not know what to do or which way to go, rest assured that The Lord is there and He has promised to never leave or forsake you.  I know that every step of the way that The Lord is with me and there is nothing to big or small for Him to handle on my behalf.  

Since I will not be afraid of what I am facing because I know that The Lord is with and since He is always with me I am convinced, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Through the trials and tribulations of life, and through the rough days and nights, thank you Lord for never leaving or forsaking me.  In Jesus Name Amen.
