I Will Never Leave You Nor Forsake You



December 29, 2020


Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)

5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”


The Poem "Footprints In The Sand" is not a Bible verse, but it does describe what Hebrews 13: 5 says well.


“One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.


"When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.


"This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it: 'LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.'


"The LORD replied: 'My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.'"


Thank You, Father, for giving to us such a great blessing in Jesus coming to bring us deliverance from the snare of our enemy. Thank You as this year ends You give us wisdom to begin in this new year of 2021. In Jesus' name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
