Just a Thought for November 8November 8, 2015
David knew that whoever put their trust YHWH or Yahweh would never be forsaken.
“And they that know Your name will put their trust in You: for You, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek You” (Psalm 9:10). This is a common theme given the children of Israel. We see it in Deuteronomy. “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD your God, He it is that does go with you; He will not fail you, nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
We see in it Joshua. “There shall not any man be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with you: I will not fail you, nor forsake you. (Joshua 1:5).
And God did not fail. He sent His Son for a final sacrifice of sin, and punishment. And Now God can say through Jesus “…For He has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
The promise is sure through the finished work of Jesus. No one will slip out of the hands of Jesus. That includes all of us.
