How Could He Give Us Up? He Couldn't!

The nature of God, the very essence of His being, is Eternal Love.  He is 100% Love.  This Love is stronger than anything.  This love tells us we are SAFE with Him!

There is NO WAY on earth or heaven that He is going to give us up!  There is NO WAY He is going to reject us or let us go!  His whole being churns against such a thought.  To let us go would be to rip out His own heart.

We aren't able to get rid of this Love!  We just can't shake Him!  We can't get rid of this God!  If we have a sinfest, He is there.  If we rant and rave at Him in our pain, He is there.  If we are troubled by doubt, confused by lies, shrouded in despair, He is there.  If we make our bed in our own private hell, HE IS THERE!  Nothing we do or don't do will ever cause Him to reject us.  He promised, "I will NEVER leave you or forsake you!"  (Heb. 11:5)

Our God just can't live without us.  He even came in the flesh died to bring us back home to Him.  Do you think He is ever going to let us out of His sight, out of His care, out of His arms again?

But how can I give up on you, Ephraim?
   How can I turn you loose, Israel?
How can I leave you to be ruined ..devastated...
I can't bear to even think such thoughts.
   My insides churn in protest.  (Hos. 11:8)

Can a mother forget the infant at her breast,
   walk away from the baby she bore?
But even if mothers forget,
   I'd never forget you—never.  (Is. 49:15)

His love just will not let us go!
