Scripture Reading: I Samuel 12:19-25

“For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for Himself.” (I Samuel 12:22)

One of the most assuring doctrines of our faith is the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints. The Westminster Confession of Faith defines the doctrine as — “They, whom God has accepted in His Beloved, effectually called, and sanctified by His Spirit, can neither totally nor finally fall away from the state of grace, but shall certainly persevere therein to the end, and be eternally saved” (Westminster Confession of Faith XXII:1).

God will keep us to the end. His love is a relentless love that will never let us go. Once He has made us His people, nothing can separate us from His love — “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38,39).

We are eternally safe in the hands of our Savior, for He said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish and no one will snatch them out of My hand” (John 10:28).

God made a promise to us — “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6). We have nothing to fear for God is with us every step we make and He will provide for us and protect us.

Take comfort! God is with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. You are safe in the hands of Jesus. He will never let you go, for nothing can separate you from His love.

Lord Jesus, thank You for never giving up on me. Thank You for Your promise that I am safe in Your hands and that no one can snatch me out of them. Thank You for Your love, a love that is relentless and will not let me go. Thank You for the eternal security I have in You.
