“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5-

There are 5 Negatives in the Greek in this verse, that cannot express any more forcefully, the truth of God’s promise, I am always and forever with you. They are forceful words to ASSURE the believer-

God will never, never, never, never, never leave you or abandon you- No Chance!


1. -Jacob – “I Am with you…I WILL NOT LEAVE You.”-Gen 28:15

2. – Moses to the Israelites – “For the LORD your God goes with you; He will NEVER Leave you nor FORSAKE You.”- Deut 31;6,8

3. -Joshua – “I will NEVER LEAVE you nor FORSAKE you.”-Josh 1:5

4. -Solomon – “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God is with you. He will NOT FAIL you or FORSAKE you.”- 1 Chron 28;20

And then there is YOU!

As God PROMISED and Assured and Reassured His people throughout the ages, so He wants you to know irrespective how you “feel” He has written FIVE Negatives in this one verse to make sure YOU know the TRUTH about God and His heart towards you.

When doubts arise, accusations come, circumstances look bleak, when “feelings” seek to imprison and lie to you of God’s care and not “feeling” His presence, God wants you to be assured from this verse, He will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER- leave or forsake you. Get the point? What do you have in common with Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Solomon and the readers in the book of Hebrews?


God is forever committed to you, He is WITH me, WITH me, WITH me, WITH me, WITH me-! He will- say it out loud – five negatives to make one Super, Eternal Positive- “GOD IS WITH ME, now and always will be, never, never, never, never, never, going to leave, forsake, abandon me- NO CHANCE!- God is with me!” You have the Promise of God to you, and He cannot lie! Speak this TRUTH to yourself!

 Let Truth feed your thought life, not fears, doubts, lies. God’s Word is fuel for the fire of faith!



 1.-THINK on His Promise- Go with what He says, irrespective of how you feel. GET A 3 BY 5 CARD and write the verse on it and THINK on it word by word, phrase by phrase and commit to meditate upon, memorize and offer to God in praise and adoration for such mercy, love, through the Lord Jesus, His cross to make it a reality!

2.- THANK Him– for His Faithfulness and writing down this promise and preserving it for generations that this moment you may read and be reminded of God’s Never. never. never. never. never- Promise of Assurance- “I will never leave you nor forsake YOU.” No matter who walks away, be assured God will not, cannot because He is faithful to His Word and His is a faithful promise of Love to encourage you in times of trouble -just as it was when written in the book of Hebrews!

3. -SHARE this Truth with someone today. You could begin by asking “Do you know what there is NO CHANCE for you today of ?”….” There is NO CHANCE of God ever forsaking or abandoning you!”


** There is NO CHANCE for You This moment, this hour, today or any moment of any hour, day, year, life time or eternity of God ever forsaking you, because He abandoned Jesus once for your sin, so you need never be abandoned.

He has reconciled you to Himself through the Blood of the Cross, and He can no more abandon you in light of that cross than He could abandon His dear Son again- NO CHANCE! You are Secure and Safe in Him and He is with you- now as you read this, memorize this and forever and it has nothing to do on circumstances, feelings but on the FAITHFULNESS OF GOD to His Word concerning you!


God will never, never, never, never, never leave you or abandon you- No Chance!
