"He Himself has said, 'I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,'"
- HEBREWS 13:5
Among people’s greatest fears is that of abandonment. It’s ingrained in us since we lost the fellowship of the Father in Eden. We focus on our own dread of abandonment, but God’s Spirit is grieved by our absence. Jesus Christ comes to get us back, to restore us to the Father’s heart. Like a parent recovering a kidnapped child, once we’re back in His arms, He promises never to let us go. More, the mom or dad of the restored child is resolute in the determination never to be away from that little one again. Once safe in Christ, no power seen or unseen can remove Him from you.
