Psalm 139:7-10 (NIV) – Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
The opposite of abandonment is adoption. In Christ, we are never alone. God is always with us. Even in those moments where we have felt alone or lonely, God is never far. Let us thank God for never abandoning us and for constantly drawing us near to him.
