GOD IS FAITHFUL! (revisited from 2/2012)
What does that mean? How can we view this & fully absorb the impact? Trust, Loyalty and Confidence have become commodities instead of virtues. Everyone has been touched by it, to some degree along the line; betrayal of a friend, disloyalty of a spouse! Confidences broken, abandonment, abuse, selfishness, fear, doubt, misguided intentions. People who lie to themselves will most assuredly have a hard time maintaining integrity in interpersonal relationships with others. Most of these people operate under a mode of conduct induced by some hurt or betrayal that they themselves had befallen.
Yet, in other things, we give trust away so easily, especially when we are invested in the outcome. We want a certain thing so badly that the slightest hint that we might obtain it, we are ready to sign at the dotted line. When you order food at a restaurant, no one sits there & questions; “Are they really going to bring it”, “Am I good enough to be served what I asked for?” Misplaced trust? YES, absolutely! We should only have as much comfortable confidence in God’s promises! He is so far above our limited viewpoint, knowing every variable, every potential outcome, every lesson assigned and the tolerances of each of us. Like that expression; “When you are down to nothing, God is up to something!” Every bad event a christian faces, God promises to FAITHFULLY rework it into a blessing. Whatever happens is due to His Grace, whatever doesn’t happen is due to His Mercy, whatever eventually happens is due to His dominion!
The world wants it to show before they will go. God wants us to Trust before he delivers …it’s a must! Faith is like a down payment, recorded and ordered, a contract between the Great I AM and little ol’ You! If we can just learn to look at it with our spiritual eyes, looking into His word, His character, His abilities; we would then see that NOTHING is impossible, goes un-noticed or slips through the cracks! Its as simple as that! It is SOUND BIBLICAL TRUTH & just because YOUR evidence hasn’t arrived yet, that doesn’t define, limit or prohibit God. It will come to pass! Every promise He makes, will come to pass! If He told you He will bless your seed and save your whole household, its a done deal! If He told you every tear you shed is collected, stored and recorded, you can bank on it!
Our requests should always be in alignment with what God says is right and true. Remember the principle of reaping what you sew! Get familiar with the many promises that God has for us! The Bible is choc full of them!
Lord, please help us, to have BOLD, CONFIDENT FAITH, teach us how to cultivate it, remind us to place that token of trust in the well of eternal life! Lift us up in our moments of doubt and direct us toward recollection of Your Greatness! For all of Heaven and Earth shall pass away except for Your words! We can thrust our prayers, concerns, worries and needs upon YOU. Only You are able, Only YOU can & will come through for us! Thank You Lord, for the many promises and blessing you have bestowed upon us, For the work You performed on our behalf, securing the rights to every one of Father God’s Plans and Hopes for us!
