How often have you heard that God would never fail or abandon you? Has it become a stale phrase in your mind, or does it still move you with the marvelous mercy that lies within its promise? Though the Lord was speaking directly to Joshua in this passage, these same words are invoked by the writer of Hebrews (13:5).
God promises that he will never fail. He cannot go against his merciful nature and take back a vow that he has made. He will never fail. He will never abandon us. When we look to Jesus, we can know that we are looking to the Faithful One. The Father and Son have given us their Spirit and promised that we will never be alone. No matter what we have done or what circumstances we find ourselves in, when we turn to God and look to him, we will find that he is nearer than we realized.
Proverbs 3:5,6 (New King James Translation)
