“For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”” (Hebrews 13:5b–6, NLT)
It’s a comfort to know that God is always with us and that He will never abandon us! While we’re sequestered in our homes and going a bit stir-crazy, feeling isolated and alone we are reminded by this passage that we are never alone. God will not abandon us, meaning that He is always with us. He’s with us, not as some sort of child-like “imaginary friend,” but actively protecting us, working all things for our good (Rom. 8:28), blessing us in Jesus Christ. As Psalm 91 says, “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty…“For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection” (Psalm 91:1, 3–4, NLT).
