Just a Thought for November 10November 10, 2015
In the Old Covenant, God seemed to come and go as He pleased. The Holy Spirit would come on people in times of special needs. Sometimes God would allow the enemies of Israel to attack them, put them in bondage, and leave them to their own devices. But Ezekiel saw a time when there would be a covenant of peace and grace where God would dwell with us.
“26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (Ezekiel 37:26-27 NKJV).
The Amplified Bible expresses the idea most emphatically that God will never leave us.
“For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] (Hebrews 13:5)
God is IN us and will never ever leave us.
