Lord will not forsake you
Lord will not forsake you – As we go through our lives, all of us face an unknown future. Sometime the future appears bright and sometime uncertain and scary. We are always trying to peer into the future and trying to predict what will happen next. We try to predict the unknown through what is known to us. Sometimes we are right and sometimes we are wrong and this always leads to the birth of ‘Fear’.
But friends, for fear to be born, another thing is necessary and that is ‘Ego’. What does this mean? It simply means that if I believe that it is only I who is responsible for my life, then I will always fear the future since it is only I who has to safeguard my life and that there is no-one to help me.
On the other hand, those who believe in God and believe that we are part of God’s larger plan, we will believe that God has a role for us-even if we don’t know what it is, and we will trust him to do what is best, for us. If this is our attitude, then we will lose our fear.
The fact is that the world is created by God, for a purpose and the Lord want to tell you that as you face the challenges of life you are not alone. He says – “I will never leave you, nor forsake you” (Bible, Hebrews 13:5).
Trust in god comes only from love. Just as a child trusts his mother because he loves his mother and he can feel the love of the mother, similarly you will trust in God only as much as you love Him. The interesting thing is that trust is based on love and love is based on trust! As you drive along your journey in life, you will find that confidence in God’s love is always coupled with trust. As I said, this means letting Him drive. When love and trust are combined, they are a like a match to faith. They will set your confidence on fire so that you can ride anywhere that God is taking you without fear.
