Over and over in the Bible God says He will never leave nor forsake us. But what does that mean? It means just what it says: God is always with you. Sometimes parents get divorced or friends stop being your friend, but the Bible says Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Jesus will never get mad at you and stop being your friend because He is faithful.
Faithful means He won’t leave you or stop loving you. From the moment you were born He has watched over you and gone wherever with you.
If you are scared or unhappy, you can pray to Jesus and He hears you. He is ready to help you. Even though you can’t see Him, He is listening. You don’t have to use special words. He is your friend, so just talk to Him like you would any friend. If you’re scared, say, “Jesus, I am scared please help me!”
Who will you call when you need a friend?
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
