HE WILL NEVER FAIL US
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV
There are times when we fail each other but it is always safe to trust Jesus because He will never fail us. Arthur A. Luther wrote a beautiful hymn about Jesus “Jesus Never Fails”. These words touch my heart. “Tho' the sky be dark and drear, Fierce and strong the gale, Just remember He is near, And He will not fail.”
It doesn’t matter how many times we have to go through dark valleys because Jesus will always be with us (Hebrews 13:5). While it hurts us and breaks our heart when others fail us, what is even worse is when we hurt and fail Jesus. He will always love us but we should do all we can do to make Him happy.
Are we failing Jesus? Do we love others unconditionally as He has commanded us to love them or are we hurting Jesus and breaking His heart? Can we honestly say we love everyone unconditionally all the time as Jesus loves us? It doesn’t matter how many times we fail and hurt Jesus, He still loves us.
O that we will follow the examples Jesus has set for us and love others as He has commanded us to love them. We can’t do it in our own strength; we need Jesus to help us. When people hurt us and break our heart, let’s remember there are times we hurt Jesus and break His heart but He loves us and always will.
