Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10
We are living in a sinful, wicked World, and we are susceptible to MANY things that can WRECK our WORLD, such as Covid-19. The last couple of months, have proven to many of us, just how FRAGILE and VULNERABLE we are. I would venture to say that the Throne-room of Heaven has been bombarded with prayers for God’s protection, and maybe even asking that He would make this HORRIBLE THREAT to mankind disappear.
Now, for “those who KNOW His Name, which indicates that they are the ones who have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP, with Him, they are the ones who TRUST Him, not ONLY for this life, but for their ETERNITY. Should it be His will, to take His TRUE CHILDREN home to HEAVEN, they have that ASSURANCE, and they KNOW this, because of His UNFAILING LOVE, and He has NEVER FORSAKEN them. They may have to face adversities and hardships, just like ANYONE ELSE, but the difference is the outcome. For the TRUE BELIEVER, God will either, take them through the adversity, or take them HOME to HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, for ALL ETERNITY. Either way, GOD has NOT FORSAKEN His Children.
In Psalm 37:25, King David penned: “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” This does NOT mean, that when one becomes a Child of God, they will NOT face ADVERSITIES, if anything they may find themselves facing HORRIBLE situations, but they KNOW, they can TRUST in GOD to provide a way, where there is NO WAY, whether He takes them through or takes them HOME, He will NEVER FORSAKE them.
However, for the UNBELIEVER, those who have NO RELATIONSHIP with God, the Prophet Isaiah, warns: “Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have FORSAKEN the LORD; they have spurned the HOLY ONE of Israel and turned their backs on Him.” God’s wrath will fall on them, and they will not only suffer the adversities here, but also throughout ALL of ETERNITY. They will stand CONDEMNED before the, HOLY RIGHTEOUS GOD of the UNIVERSE, and will spend their ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there. Is this your destiny?
God has a plan for YOU to be able to ESCAPE that DESTINY. He has provided a WAY for you to spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. You MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and TRUST Him with ALL your being, because HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE you. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
