God Grateful Peace Promises protection

286 A Simple Promise

“No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you”

Joshua 1:5

Isn’t that a beautiful promise?

quite simple

perhaps too good to be true

on first look


the same words are

repeated throughout the Bible


“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6


The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31: 8


Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Revelation 3:10

and many more places…

The sovereign, triune God of the universe

promises that as a child

of God


will never

be left or forsaken

In addition

I am to be



and am commanded

to endure patiently

I am not to be





Sometimes it’s easy as a human

to listen to

the calamity mongerers

media hysteria

those who claim to fortell the end of the world


live in a state of fear

a constant tizzy of negativity

that will inhibit peace

and separate me from God

But there is one more


that I remember

over and over

when fear rises up

as it does so frequently:

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

Isaiah 6:3

my hope is that anyone who reads this can find the peace that comes from trusting the promises of God




that is beyond

human understanding
