Things God Will Never Do

In this "never" series, I have covered God's "never" promises to the wicked, as well as His "never" promises to the righteous. I have also covered what we as righteous followers of Jesus should never do. Today I want to remind you of the things God will never do. Aside from the fact that God cannot lie (Numbers 23:19; Titus 1:2), here are several more things He will never do.

He Will Never Stop Doing Good To His Covenant People
"I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me." (Jer 32:40)

He Will Never Drive Away Sincere Seekers
"All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away." (Joh 6:37)

He Will Never Count Your Sins Against You
"Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them." (Rom 4:8). The key is you have to repent of your sin and ask forgiveness from God in Jesus' name. Then He will never count those sins of yours against you.

He Will Never Leave Nor Forsake You
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." (Deu 31:6)

"The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." (Deu 31:8)

"No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Jos 1:5)

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." (Heb 13:5)

He Will Never Blot Out The Overcomers' Names From The Book Of Life
"The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels." (Rev 3:5)

He Will Never Let The Righteous Be Shaken
"Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." (Psa 55:22)

He Will Never Forget The Needy
"But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish." (Psa 9:18)

He Will Never Curse The Ground Or Destroy All Living Creatures
"The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done." (Gen 8:21)

He Will Never Let Days And Seasons Cease As Long As Earth Endures 
"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." (Gen 8:22)

He Will Never Again Destroy All Life With A Flood
"I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth." (Gen 9:11)

"I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life." (Gen 9:15)

He Will Never Forsake His Inheritance
"For the LORD will not reject His people; He will never forsake His inheritance." (Psa 94:14)

He Will Never Forgive The Blasphemy Of The Holy Spirit
"...but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin." (Mar 3:29)

He Never Fails And His Love Never Fails
"Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." (1Co 13:8)

His Compassions Never Fail
"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail." (Lam 3:22)

His Covenant With David (Jesus) Will Never Fail
"I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail." (Psa 89:28)

His Word Will Never Pass Away
"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." (Mat 24:35; cf. Mar 13:31; Luk 21:33)

His Dominion Will Never End
"I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. "For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end." (Dan 6:26)

"He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed." (Dan 7:14)

His Kingdom Will Never End
"...and He will reign over Jacob's descendants forever; His kingdom will never end." (Luk 1:33)

Closing Words
I hope this has been an encouragement to you to remember God's faithfulness, His enduring kingdom, His power, and His love.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe. 

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
