"Don't be fearful. . . . Don't turn your back on GOD. Worship and serve him heart and soul! . . .
GOD, simply because of who he is, is not going to walk off and leave his people. GOD took delight in making you into his very own people. (1 Samuel 12:20–22 MSG)
God can't break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It's an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us. (Hebrews 6:18–20 MSG)
