He is always there so stick by Him. Let's go to:
Psalms 38:21 "Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me." (KJV)
forsake (Strong's 5800) to loosen, forsake, fortify, leave or relinquish (surrender possession of);
Lord (Strong's 3068) Self-Existent, Eternal or Jehovah; (from Strong's 1961) to exist, become or come to pass;
God (Strong's 430) supreme God, judges or magistrates; (from Strong's 433) the God (emphatic form of Strong's 410) strength, mighty, almighty, power or strong; (from Strong's 352) strength, a chief;
far (Strong's 7368) to widen, remove, far away or a good way off.
So know that dear God is not the one that stays away from you. It is up to you to keep with Him focusing on Him and not on yourself and anything else too much. When you do, it draws all your energy from Him. He does not want to force Himself onto anyone and see who really does love Him, meaning spends time with Him, gives their time for Him, sharing His Love and Truth and learning more about what it is that HE wants from you in the Word. If your loved one wrote a book to you and you never even opened it up, wouldn't that send a message to you? It is the same with Him and the instructions in it are good because He did live here in the flesh, through His Son, Jesus the Christ, showing you that He loves you that much not putting you through something He would not do Himself.
Hebrews 2:14 "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had power of death, that is, the devil;" (KJV)
And right before His physical death we see here in:
Matthew 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is to say, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?" (KJV)
Which He is quoting from:
Psalms 22:1 "My GOD, my GOD, why hast thou forsaken me?" (KJV)
So these are David's words the Son is pointing you here to see what is written. Jesus always refers to dear God as Father, not God. Then let's continue here in:
John 19:24 "They said therefore among themselves, "Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be:" that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, "They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture they did cast lots." These things therefore the soldiers did." (KJV)
Which is from:
Psalms 22:18 "They part my garments among them, And cast lots upon my vesture." (KJV)
And then finally here in:
John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, "It is finished:" and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost." (KJV)
Which is from:
Psalms 22:31 "They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness unto a People that shall be born, That He hath done this."
done (Strong's 6213) to do, make, finish, accomplish, perform, sacrifice, served, showed or set;
So as dear God already had written several years prior to this happening, it always goes down the way that He has written so you see the confidence and the solidity in Him the One that did this for you because you believe on Him.
Finally, He is always there so stick by Him. He came to you here overcoming death and giving you His Example through the Word to get through successfully. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He helps you out every step of the way. Show Him that you can get His work done by letting Him use you in His Plan of Love and thank Him for the gifts and talents He has given you to share with those you love. He is proud of you and the way you can give back is to help out those that you care about setting a good example and hanging tough in your life so that you can be there for them, too. Lift them up to Him showing by your faith knowing that He will never leave you nor forsake you and you rest in Him and in that fact because you love Him. He loves you so much.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Solidness,
