"For God said, I will never, never fail you nor forsake you." (Heb. 13:15)

The foundation of our faith is the word of God. In this scripture verse God Himself speaks, "For God has said." It is not what "they say," nor what "we say," but what "God says" that is important.

What did God say? He promised, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." God always keeps His Word. He can be trusted. The word leave usually means "to depart"." In this verse it has a deeper meaning of "I will not let you go." He is always near to come to our aid when we are in trouble. His promise gives us confidence. "That we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper.

Has there been a time in your life that you were overworked, when you had more to do than you thought you could do? You were weary and discouraged and almost to a breaking point. You were ready to give up. Suddenly a friend came and said, "I have come to help you." How you spirits were lifted and the burden was eased.

The Lord is such a helper. One who is always near to give needed help. The Lord IS our helper. He is a present helper, even for today. "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Ps. 46:1). His help is for us personally. The Lord is MY helper. "MY help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth" (Ps.121:2). There are times when friends cannot help, but the Lord can; when money cannot help, but the Lord can; when social position cannot help, but the Lord can. We can depend on His help, for we have His promise that He will never leave us or forsake us....

Have a great "humpday" love mark Phil. 4:11
