The “NEVERS” of God…
In the NIV translation of the Bible, God uses the word “never” many times to describe actions that He will never take (what He won’t ever do). We can trust EVERY Word from God–He will do EVERYTHING He says He will do (Luke 21:32-33)! And yet, we are wise to pay extra attention when the LORD adds the word “never”; it is an emphatic word that highlights and underlines God’s great unchanging promises, His pure unchanging character, His utter and eternal reliability for us who so desperately need Him. In a world where everything seems to be shifting and changing all of the time, may we cling to God and His Truth that NEVER change…
Here are 20 of the “NEVER” promises of God that we can apply in our daily lives!
