Jesus said I would be with you always Matt.28:20 and I would never leave you nor forsake you Heb.13:5. If God said that and we know He is not a man that He should lie, nor a son if man that He should repent Numbers23:19 then, we can take His statements to the bank and rest in his love for us because He always puts His action where His love is. That is the God we serve, for Rom.8:32 says “He that spared not His own but delivered Him up for us all, shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” So, if God has made up His mind concerning you and His unconditional love and commitment to you, now is the time for you to make up your mind concerning Him and your unconditional trust of Him, especially in the hardest places of your life, because then, you would be able to receive the marvellous help of the Lord He has being offering to you all along.
We need to understand that when we are at our lowest ebb, Jesus gathers us in His arms and helps us up like a wounded sheep, nursing us till we are fit to stand again. God speaking in Isa.49:13-16 says “for the Lord has comforted His people and will have mercy upon His afflicted” the Lord went on to say, though you may be forgotten and may lack compassion from everyone including tour mother, yet will He not forget you. Should this be a surprise to us? when all this decades He has always said “I am the good shepherd” John10:11 & 14. Notice that a good shepherd always protects and shields the sheep from danger even as He leads them through green pastures and still waters Psalm 23:2. But peradventure evil strikes, this good shepherd would chase hard after the attacker, whether it is a lion, a fox or a wolf, kill it and rescue the sheep from the mouth of the devourer; just as David did when He was rearing His father’s sheep 1Sam.17:34-36. David chased after the lion and the bear, killed them at two different occasions and rescued the sheep’s from the jaws of death. If a young boy like David could do this, how much more would our all powerful good shepherd rescue us each time from the perils of this world, comfort us right in the midst of loss and restore to us all the enemy thought he had stolen from us! Isa.61:7 & Joel 2:25.
All Jesus requires of us, is our faith to trust in Him and His unconditional love for us to do for us, exactly what He said and beyond. He desires that we allow Him manifest His love in our lives and receive His help, all by Faith. Isaiah 43:1-7 is a glossary of Gods protection, leads, and restoration plans for every believer. He said He would give the heathen for your life and He would give up your adversaries for your safety and peace because He loves you.
