255. He’s on Your Side. Depend on it!

Jeremiah 46:28 MSG   (28) Yes, dear Jacob my servant, you have nothing to fear. Depend on it, I’m on your side. I’ll finish off all the godless nations among which I’ve scattered you, But I won’t finish you off. I have more work left to do on you. I’ll punish you, but fairly. No, I’m not finished with you yet.”

The Lord told Israel, “You have nothing to fear. Depend on it, I’m on your side.” Glory, that’s good. Israel hadn’t exactly been faithful to God, but He will always be on their side. Why? Covenant.

God is a covenant God. When He gives His Word you can take it to the bank. Unlike people today that are always looking for loop holes and how to spin things that have been said, GOD is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). He will never forsake Israel. They have nothing to fear, God is on their side.

Praise God, if you’ve been born-again through faith in the Lord Jesus and his bodily resurrection, then He is on your side too. Romans chapter 5 tells us that having been justified by faith, we have peace with God, we shall be saved from wrath, we’ve received abundance of grace, and are to reign in life through Jesus (Romans 5:1, 9, 17). We’ve entered into a New Covenant through faith and received glorious promises of protection, provision, healing, and fearless living to name a few. You are in an everlasting Covenant with God through the One, Christ Jesus, and He isn’t looking for a way out. His Word is His bond. He’s declared that He is on your side, depend on it. You have nothing to fear. Fear Not!
