God is Forever Faithful!
It's in those moments where everything seem to be going the wrong way that He whispers, "Here I am my child, I've always been there".
I was going to post another article about pain first, but today I tasted His faithfulness in a brand new way and I decided that I would post this before.
On this Monday morning (0r whenever you are reading this), I want you to remember that God is there in the midst of it all. I was facing some challenges, and I just couldn't see God move. It's not that God wasn't there for me, it's not that God was not working on my behalf, He is always doing all these things. If not, where would I be? The thing is that I was too busy trying to figure things out on my own, I was too busy trying to cut corners, I was too busy trying to be my own provider, I was too busy letting pride take the best of me to see or hear Him.
But, the moment I stayed quiet, I could hear the whisper so LOUD and clear. "Here I am."
Lamentations 3:19-26 I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him." The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, the ones who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
No, not all challenges went away, not everything is resolved, not everything is going the way I want them to at the moment. But, things are different now because I got the greatest reminder that : GOD IS FAITHFUL! He showed me once more that He is the same yesterday and today.
His word is true, always true. But, it takes walking with him to experience these truths.
I pray that wherever you are in life today, you get to stay quiet for a while to hear that whisper and to feel God moving. I promise you He is always there moving in your life in small and in big ways. It is just hard to hear and see Him when you let your situation take over your life. Stay quiet for a while!
His Faithfulness Endures Forever!
He is Forever Faithful!
