holdinghandspicThe other day one of my Good News Club kids had a very good question.  She had heard someone say that God would leave her if she wasn’t good and she was confused because she had heard me say that God would never leave her after she received Jesus as her Savior, which she had chosen to do.  I was so glad that she asked because we always want to go to God’s Word for truth.  Anyone can say something wrong or make a mistake.  But not God’s Word.

So I showed her in the Bible where God said that He would never leave His children.  Hebrews 13:5 says, “God has said, ‘I will never leave you.  I will never desert you,'” (NIrV).  Then I showed her 1 John 1:9, “But God is faithful and fair.  If we admit that we have sinned, He will forgive us our sins.  He will forgive every wrong thing we have done.  He will make us pure,” (NIrV).

She was so sweet.  We were sitting on the floor in a small group and after we looked at these Scriptures she jumped up and said, “Thanks!  That’s all I needed to know!”

And you know what?  That’s a good thing for me to know, too.  To know that God will never leave me or desert me.  That when life is difficult, God is here.  And when life is great, God is here.  He is always with me.

BarlowGirl is one of my favorite bands.  I like their song, “Never Alone.”  I was thinking about that song today and the line, “We cannot separate.  You’re part of me.  And though You’re invisible I’ll trust the unseen.”  Enjoy the video of the song below.

Remember, if you have received Jesus as your Savior, God will never leave you.  You’re inseparable.
