For the LORD will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance.
People may promise a lot of things like they won’t ever leave you until their last breath. It will surely sweep you off your feet.
However dashing or trustworthy that person may be, one day they will fail and may leave you hanging in the air–just like that. Without an acceptable reason. Without an explanation.
It will cause you to never trust anyone else. It will leave a wound so messy you cannot take another blow for you’ll surely die.
But the everlasting love of Jesus will heal your deepest scars. You will remember the pain but it won’t ever sting. And if one day you stumble and the hurt, worries, and agony starts creeping in again, you can cling on to the ultimate source of joy. He is not like all the other people whom you’ve trusted and given your all. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never reject you, His child. He loved you even when you are still a sinner. He never fails to love you if you stumble again.
So get up. Let His comfort bring you joy.
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought me joy.
