Have you experienced a time when everyone left you and you felt that you needed them the most at that time?
Have you ever been friendless?
Have you ever known someone who was always around until the moment that you needed them and then POOF! they’re gone?
Sometimes one of the hardest things in the world to find is someone who is LOYAL. By today’s standards it is much more attractive to be selfish. The only problem with being selfish is that we all encounter times in our lives when we need other people. Being selfish doesn’t help when the person who’s been selfish in now in need of other people.
Do you know that God is LOYAL? Yes, He really, really is. He promised to never leave us. He’s always there to help us. He’s always by our side. All that we have to do is call Him.
In the Amplified Bible, Hebrews 13:5 says…
Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”
This scripture reassures us that God will never leave, desert us or give up on us. I love this version because it says, He will not leave you with support or leave you helpless. Isn’t it wonderful to have God in your corner at all times? He’s a friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). All it takes is us calling on Him. He’s just a prayer away.
Don’t allow yourself to be depressed when everyone has disappeared. Go to God and watch Him work with you and for you. He’s LOYAL!
