‘I will never leave thee.’ – Hebrews 13:5
Whatever God has said to any saint, He has said to all. When He opens a well for one, it is that all may drink. When He opens a granary door to give out food, there may be one starving man who is the reason for it being opened, but all hungry saints may come and feed too. Whether He gave the word to Abraham or to Moses matters not. O, believer, He has given it to you as one of the elect ones. There is not a high blessing too lofty for you nor a wide mercy too extensive for you. Lift up now your eyes to the north and the south, to the east and west, for all this is yours. Climb to the mountain top and view the utmost limit of the divine promise, for the land is all your own.
There is not a brook of living water of which you may not drink. If the land flows with milk and honey, eat the honey and drink the milk, for both are for you. Be bold to believe, for He has said, ‘I will never leave THEE, nor forsake THEE.’ In this promise, God gives to His people everything. ‘I will never leave thee.’ Then no attribute of God can cease to be engaged for us. Is He mighty? He will show Himself strong on the behalf of them that trust Him. Is He love? Then with lovingkindness will He have mercy on us. Whatever attributes may compose the character of God, everyone of them to its fullest extent shall be engaged for us.
To put everything in one, there is nothing you can lack, nothing you can ask for, nothing you can need now or in eternity, there is nothing in living or dying, nothing in this world or the next world, nor is there anything now or in heaven that is not contained in this text–‘I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.’
