The adage, “Never Say Never,” still rings true for much of life. People change every day. That which we think is popular one minute will become out of date the next. People fail, walk away, and make bad choices that affect generations to come.
Just ask Peter. The one who only moments earlier declared his undying loyalty failed when the rubber met the road. Tough times bring people to their knees and good people do things they swore they never would.
Most things in this life will change but take comfort in knowing that the things that matter most won’t (Hebrews 13:8).
God will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5, Philippians 1:6, Isaiah 49:15-16).
Jobs may come and go. Friends will go their own way. Children will move and start their own lives. Good health may slip away without a warning. Even spouses who once promised forever and always, can make the choice to leave.
However, the Lord who spoke the world into existence will be your constant. He will never stop loving you (Psalms 117:2, John 3:16, Romans 8:38-39, I John 4:16).
He will hold your heart when the rest of world turns their back. He will never disappoint. He will help you walk when you’re too weak to stand (Isaiah 40:29-31). He will never be too busy to listen, too tired to talk, or too stressed to save.
The same God who parted the sea, tumbled the walls, and triumphed over death is on your side (Psalms 118:6, Romans 8:28-31). He will sustain you regardless of what this life brings (Matthew 11:28-29).
So when the road gets to weary, when the way gets too cluttered, when life hurts and doesn’t turn out the way you had planned, say never; for God will never leave you. He will never stop loving you. He will never give up on you. Never.
