Believing in the God who is always there
August 3, 2011
“No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.”
I remember when I was in one of my first pastorates in the little town of Hobart, Oklahoma. There was an accident outside of that little farming community. And it turned out that three boys were drunk and crashed their car. They were all from Oklahoma City and they’d come out there just to drive the roads and tear things up.
So the sheriff decided to throw all three of them in jail because they hadn’t been injured very badly in the accident. They called the fathers of these boys in Oklahoma City, and two of the boys’ fathers came to get their sons. But the other one said, “I’m not coming to get him. I’m tired of fooling with the mistakes of this boy and he can sit there all year long, but I’m not coming to get him.”
Well, the boy heard that his father wasn’t coming to help him. And the next day, they found him hanging by his own belt in that jail cell in Hobart. His father had left him. And he was so heartbroken and in despair that he took his own life.
God will never leave you. No matter how many times you mess up or walk away from Him, He’ll always be there, ready to welcome you home. So if you think that you’ve messed up too badly to come back to God, remember that He will never leave or forsake you!
YOU’VE NEVER FALLEN TOO FAR FOR GOD TO FORGIVE YOU. SO NO MATTER WHAT YOU’VE DONE IN LIFE, YOU CAN ALWAYS COME BACK TO HIM.
