. . . For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. — HEBREWS 13:5
A woman came up to me at the close of a service where I had taught on faith. She was crying almost hysterically. She said, “Brother Hagin, pray for me!”
“What is the matter?” I asked.
“It seems like the Lord has forsaken me!”
“What awful sin have you committed to make the Lord forsake you?”
“As far as I know, I haven’t done anything,” she said. “It just seems like the presence of the Lord is gone from me.”
“The Bible doesn’t say we walk by ‘seems like,’” I explained to her. “It says we walk by faith. And God’s Word says that the Lord will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
“I know that,” she cried, “but it just seems like He has.”
“You have more faith in ‘seems like’ than you have in the Bible.”
“But I know what I feel!” she said, almost angrily.
“Yes,” I said, “but I know my Jesus. Jesus said it, and I believe it. We cannot be concerned by what we feel.”
If you start believing right, thinking right, and talking right, it won’t be long until you’ll be feeling right!
Confession: Jesus will never leave me, nor forsake me. He said it. I believe it. And I say it.
