Chapel – 4/7/20
Read these two verses. What do they have in common?
Joshua 1:5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Hebrews 13:5 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.”
What do you think? That is pretty powerful, that the God who has kept absolutely every one of His promises has promised that He will not leave us. God tells His Old Testament people in Joshua and His New Testament people (which includes us!) in Hebrews that He will not forsake us. Vocab word for the day: forsake means to abandon, renounce, or give up. That’s an amazing promise coming from the only one who can actually keep it. We can stand securely on that promise and live confidently despite our circumstances. That’s news worth sharing!
Song: I Am Not Alone – by Kari Jobe
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for promising to never leave us nor forsake us. Help us to rely on that promise and go about our lives as your true children. Keep us strong despite what we may face, and allow us to share the reason for our confidence with others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
