What a comforting Scripture, to know that God is faithful in all that he does. When we go through good times, God is faithful. When hardships hit our lives, God is faithful. When trails come our way, God is faithful. No matter what, we can know that our God is faithful.
Now there are times in every person’s life where we can feel as if God doesn’t understand what were going through or maybe the trials we are in seem too hard bear. Maybe our pains and struggles cause us at times to become unfaithful in our relationship with God. There are even times we doubt Gods love, faithfulness, goodness and concern. Everyone experiences hardships and trials to some degree or another. But in spite of where you find yourself today are you willing to remain faithful, committed, and dedicated to God? The Bible says that God is our shelter in times of storms, He is our strong tower, our rock in a weary land and our peace in the midst of life’s storms. He is always with us and never leaves our side.
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Today, lets boldly cling to God’s unchanging hands, regardless of how hard the wind blows or how heavy the rain pours on our lives. Lets courageously stand firm and face opposition, denial, rejection and persecution. For God promises to be with all those who call him Lord. One thing all of us are promised in this life are trials and tribulations. God never said we would be free from them. In fact we are told that we will go through them.
“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.” 1 Peter 4:12
“Consider it pure joy, my sister, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3
Know that suffering is a tool that God uses to get our attention, but not only that, it also accomplishes His purposes and His will in our lives. And for those who love him, it forces them to die to self and let Christ rule in their lives. What a faithful God we serve!
Love you all!
