“I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Once we understand and fully accept the living God’s intent that we have “life abundant”– satisfying, productive, happy lives – trust is born. We receive our baptism: “This is my beloved Son [Child] in whom I am well pleased. (Matthew 3:17)” God is our Source, our Resource, our Rock, forever. In times of questioning, of need, of the “wilderness” (a time of “bewilderment”), the Creator – Sustainer always provides encouragement. Ask “what do I need to know about this, Father?” An answer will be provided, whether in words or circumstances. You are never alone.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged.”
The Bible, New International Version
