It’s Impossible For God To Leave You Stranded
Dr Alex Tang
We have all felt let down and abandoned by others. But God said, “Never will I
leave you. Never will I forsake you.” God will never leave you. God will never
forsake you. He’s always there with you. Experience comfort and confidence
knowing than God can’t leave you stranded in the turmoil of life.
Hebrews 13:5, 6
5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have,
because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What
can man do to me?"
EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WILL LEAVE YOU IN THE END, BUT GOD WILL NOT LEAVE YOU
25 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or
drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than
food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father
feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying
can add a single hour to his life?
GOD WILL ALWAYS BE HERE TO LOOK AFTER YOU
PS 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation--
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life--
of whom shall I be afraid?
PS 27:2 When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
PS 27:3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.
PS 27:4 One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
PS 27:5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock.
PS 27:6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the LORD.
PS 27:7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;
be merciful to me and answer me.
PS 27:8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!"
Your face, LORD, I will seek.
PS 27:9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
O God my Savior.
PS 27:10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the LORD will receive me.
PS 27:11 Teach me your way, O LORD;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
PS 27:12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
breathing out violence.
PS 27:13 I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
PS 27:14 Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
Soli Deo Gloria
