    The LORD is faithful. When He promises to never forsake you He remains true to His word. I am so blessed to have run into a challenging time in life and have the Holy Spirit give life to the word and to see it being fulfilled. Bless the LORD oh my soul. In Jesus's name. Amen.

    As I have been brought up into adulthood through this verse, now its time for me to turn up to my heavenly father and say to him " I shall never leave thee nor forsake thee "....and I look down to my children to repeat the same verse to them!
  • Duane kusler on Hebrews 13:5
    Is it true that in Koine Greek that when two negatives are side by side as in Heb 13:5-6 that the impact doubles and doubles again in v. 6 so that a believer is secure in Christ to the power of five. So I was taught. dk

  • Moses Njenga on Hebrews 13:5
    Only content person can raise his hands and worship GOD in Truth. covetousness is a spirit from the pit of hell which keeps showing you what you don 't have and blinds a person to what GOD is doing in his or her life.

  • MockingBird on Hebrews 13:5
    Covetousness in this verse I found in the Vines Dictionary means to have a desire for more money. Grasping and pulling to get more and more money. I do the best I can to be content with what God has Blessed me with. I have no lack. My God has and is supplying all my need according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus . God 's word says to be content but I am not satisfied To be satisfied is to have all I will ever want and do not want or need anything else. I am content. Jesus is my Lord and I could not ask for anyone better. He is Awesome !!!! I can leave Him but He will never leave me but if I leave Him I have no consciousness of Him being near me because He steps back from me if I leave Him and go my own way. He cannot manifest Himself where sin is !!!!
  • Mugisha onesmus on Hebrews 13:5
    this scripture reminds me to be contented with what I have and hoping from God all the time not putting my heart what I see but what I hope in christ jesus
