In Israel, God’s presence being removed meant forsakenness. Thus why Moses would petition God to remain present with the people (Ex 33:15). So, Moses reassures Joshua to courage because God will never forsake His people (Duet 31:8) and the Lord promises the same to Joshua (Joshua 1:5). Additionaly, the writer of Hebrews appeals to this same promise as a basis for contentment (Heb 13:5).
But this begs the question: How can a holy God remain faithful to a faithless people?
While the Father has all rights to forsake all humanity, He freely forsake His Son instead. In Mark 15:34, Jesus asks, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” The answer: so that God’s people may never be forsaken.
The Father forsook Jesus so that you may never be forsaken.
