Be Bold to Believe: Charles Spurgeon’s Spoken Word, February 23

I will never leave thee.”—Hebrews 13:5.

Be bold to believe, for He has said,
“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
In this promise, God gives to His people everything.

“I will never leave you.”
Then no attribute of God
can cease to be engaged for us.

Is He mighty?
He will show Himself strong
on the behalf of them that trust Him.

Is He love?
Then with lovingkindness
will He have mercy upon us.

Whatever attributes
may compose
the character of Deity,

every one of them to its fullest
extent shall be engaged on our side.
To put everything in one,

there is nothing you can want,
there is nothing you can ask for,
there is nothing you can need in time or in eternity,

there is nothing living, nothing dying,
there is nothing in this world,
nothing in the next world,

there is nothing now,
nothing at the resurrection-morning,
nothing in heaven which is not contained in this text—

“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
