The Simple Truth

This week I was encouraged and reminded about how The Lord will never leave us, nor forsake us. Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." We all have struggles in life, every single one of us. There are times in life where we are crying out to God screaming,"Where the hell are you?!" Everything in life seems to be falling apart, your strength is failing, your hope is lost, you are loosing power to self-talk, you are just in a hole and feel like you're never going to make it out alive. (Read Psalm 22) This scripture was quoted 24 times in the New Testament...Psalm 22 is a foretelling of Jesus' crucifixion.

Jesus was forsaken by his own Father! God forsake His son for you and I! Would you ever give up your child for a scumbag sinner? Mmm probably not. All those who put faith in Jesus will NEVER be forsaken because Jesus is proof that God is for you and I. How personal is that? God gave Jesus for me. God gave Jesus for me. God gave Jesus for me! I'm so undeserving but He still did that! Because God loves me! If you're anything like me, I have to really try to remind myself of this simple, awesome, truth that saves our souls. (Read Isaiah 53) 

God forsake His son so that we who believe can reign in the kingdom of heaven FOR-E-V-ER! Revelation 22:1-5 "Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever."
