DAY 15—None of the Redeemed shall be left desolate.
I’ve lived with the Lord long enough to know that He IS faithful. He abideth faithful. That’s just the way He is. He’s always faithful. There are no two ways about it: our Lord is a faithful Lord. Faith originated with Him. That’s where we get our faith—from Him. It’s His gift to us. So, without making any further argument trying to convince anyone, just allow me to say it again: no one that trusts in the Lord our God will be left desolate. Oh, but, uh oh, someone else has beat me to it! David was convinced of this. He said it before I could say it. He found out that the Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate. What’s that, if it doesn’t mean the Lord abideth faithful? (See II Timothy 2:13 and II Thessalonians 3:3)
Psalms 34:22—The LORD redeemeth the soul of His servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate. NIrV—Lord, may Your faithful love rest on us. We put our hope in You.
John 10:27,28—My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. NIrV—My sheep listen to My voice. I know them, and they follow Me.
I Peter 1:3-5—Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope (a living hope) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in Heaven for you, who are kept (guarded) by the power of God through faith unto (a) salvation ready (prepared)to be revealed in the last time (to be made known in the last season of time). NIrV—Give praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In his great mercy he has given us a new birth and a hope that is alive. It is alive because Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He has given us new birth so that we might share in what belongs to him. It is a gift that can never be destroyed. It can never spoil or even fade away. It is kept in heaven for you. Through faith you are kept safe by God's power. Your salvation is going to be completed. It is ready to be shown to you in the last days.
LORD, I am trusting You. I trust that anything that seems like desolation coming upon us will turn to our good. We will never be forsaken—because You have redeemed us and You are faithful! NOW, please take these fearful ones that I hold before You today. Help them know how faithful You are. Show them Your redeeming power.
