Never Let You Go
In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going. — John 14:2-4
This is a great moment. Basically, Jesus is saying that He never makes promises that He doesn't keep, which means He will never, ever let us down.
In life, we are let down. We are let down by parents, pastors, and numerous other people. And sometimes, this is so profound that it rattles our souls. Sometimes, it leaves open wounds and ugly scars that make it hard to trust another person ever again. And many people, even believers, project this distrust onto Jesus. But Jesus is not like any of these people. He never lets people down.
So don't project the distrust of the people of your past onto Jesus. Believe because He is coming again to take those who believe home to a place that is way better than this one.
1. How does knowing that Jesus never makes promises He doesn't keep impact your perspective on trust and faith in Him? How can you apply this truth to strengthen your relationship with Him?
2. Reflect on a time when you felt let down or hurt by someone, and it affected your ability to trust. How can you differentiate between human fallibility and Jesus' unfailing faithfulness? What steps can you take to fully trust in Jesus, knowing He will never disappoint?
DO THIS: Stop projecting distrust of your past onto Jesus.
PRAY THIS: Dear Lord, thank You for the assurance that You never let us down and for preparing a place for us in Your Father's house. Help me to trust in Your unwavering faithfulness and eagerly await Your return, knowing that Your promises are true. Amen.
PLAY THIS: Never Let You Go.
