“Never” was a favorite word used by my children.  They often used it to put a guilt trip on me.  “Mom, you never take us…”

The word “never” means not ever; at no time.  Not at all; absolutely not; to no extent or degree.  Obviously, my kids didn’t know what “never” meant!

Eighty-six times in the Bible the word “never” is used.  It is a signficant word in scripture.

Hebrews 13:5 reads:  “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

It’s a divine adage.  What was said in the Bible then extends to us now.  God will not withdraw His presence.  His help is always available.  He will never forsake us!  It’s a guarantee given to all who follow Him.

Prayer:  Lord, You’ve never failed me and You never will! Whether I’m in the valley or on the mountain, You always stand by me.  Regardless of what is going on in my life I can count on You to be with me.
