Day 15: Never Forsaken


David said it:

My God, my God, why have You Forsaken me? Why are You so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning? O my God, I call out by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I find no rest nor quiet. Psalm 22:1-2

Then

Jesus

said it:

About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud [agonized] voice,

“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is,

My God, my God, why have You Forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

Now

Have you said it?

My God, my God, why have You Forsaken me?

Forsaken

Abandoned

Oh I have said it in those moments of ~

Do you hear me

Do you see me

Do you even know I exist

because if you did

You would not be forsaking me.

But has God really forsaken us?

Jesus

had the right to cry those words

because

Christ didn’t have any sin.

But God made Him become sin for us.

So we can be made right with God because of what

Christ has done for us. II Corinthians 5:21

So, has God Forsaken you?

It may feel like it,

in those moments when you feel

your cries are not being heard;

when

your circumstances aren't changing;

when

you are doing all that you are supposed to be doing.

&

Nothing

still happens.

How do you feel

Forsaken

at this moment?

How is Jesus'

My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?

in His darkest moment

Enough

to

Bring light

in your

"Forsaken"

moments?

Because

He Is

with you & I

when we are alone.

He Is

our strength when we are weak.

He Is

our peace when we are anxious.

He Is

our joy when we are depressed.

He Is

our everything when we feel we are nothing.

He Is

because

He was Forsaken~

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of

His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Therefore,

let's

Fast

from the weight of feeling

Forsaken

by

looking up

to the

One

Who

He Himself has said,

"I will never leave you

nor Forsake you."

Hebrews 13:5
