“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.” Heb 13:5-6
We are warned: keep our life free from the love of money, and be content with what we have. Then we can stand and declare with confidence, “He said, He is my helper and therefore I will not be afraid.”
However, we must be free from the love of worldly security and be content in our current situation. Money can be seductive. It promises comfort, peace, security, control, or anything we believe will make us content. But it excludes the One who provides all comfort and peace.
Being content in Him means we do not carry the worries of tomorrow or about what we have or don’t have. It frees us from the fear, the anxiety and the distractions of the world.
These exhortations are backed by the incredible declaration, “He said!”
These are magnificent words of peace, a declaration of an incredible and powerful commitment. “I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.” These are words we stand on. They are the solid ground of God’s promise.
“I will never…” Not once, not for a moment, under no circumstance, not ever!
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Mark 13:31
These promises cannot be broken or shaken. Our faith should soar at these words as we proclaim with full confidence, “He said!”
