I definitely know that God is trustworthy. How do I know this? Let’s take it from the beginning, Because of Genesis 1, all stories are possible. Because of our Creator all stories can have a happy ending. I know that everything that has been, and everything that will be is already known by our amazing Creator. Because of God we have it all with a choice to believe.
”Can anything separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble, pain or persecution? Can lack of clothes and food, danger to life and limb, the threat of force of arms? Indeed some of us know the truth of the ancient text: ‘For your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter’.
“No, in all these things we win an overwhelming victory through Him who has proved His love for us.
“I have become absolutely convinced that neither death nor life, neither messenger of Heaven nor monarch of earth, neither what happens today nor what may happen tomorrow, neither a power from on high nor a power from below, nor anything else in God’s whole world has any power to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord!" ~Romans 8:35-39 (J.B. Phillips New Testaments)
Impressive, right? May we be, first and foremost, impressed with YOU GOD! God is always calling. Have you answered? Do you know what He did for you? Where do you expect to spend eternity?
"When the true message, the Good News, first came to you, you heard about the hope it offers. So your faith and love are based on what you hope for, which is kept safe for you in heaven." ~Colossians 1:5 (Good News Translation)
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life." ~John 3:16 (Good News Translation)
I am grateful that I can always come to You Lord, no matter what the challenge. And, even more grateful that my life is important to You. Thank You Jesus.
Rest in Him.
Submit to Him.
Love because He loved you first.
"If you listen to me, you will know what is right, just, and fair. You will know what you should do. You will become wise, and your knowledge will give you pleasure."
LISTENING, THAT IS THE PART WE MISS ON so much...
"Your insight and understanding will protect you and prevent you from doing the wrong thing. They will keep you away from people who stir up trouble by what they say—"
BUT WHEN WE LISTEN, we gain what He desires us so greatly to have.
"those who have abandoned a righteous life to live in the darkness of sin, those who find pleasure in doing wrong and who enjoy senseless evil, unreliable people who cannot be trusted." ~Proverbs 2:9-15 (Good News Translation)
KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIM.
