For the word of the Lord holds true,
and we can trust everything he does.
The Lord is faithful. Paul describes just how faithful he is in Hebrews 13:8-9...
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace...
He doesn’t change, but times change, public opinion changes, and people change. It’s a trap to think that God changes too. If he did change in anyway, he wouldn’t be trustworthy. But he doesn’t, so he is!
I don’t think I always make the connection that my fears and worries are based in a lack of trust. I’m a Believer, of course I trust God. But, if I really trust him, I must resist the urge to take matters into my own hands so much. If there is a problem, I shouldn’t go nuts trying to find a solution. The solution is simply asking God, “What are you going to do about this?” Even if his solution doesn’t seem good or logical to me, I choose to trust him over myself because, looking back, my track record is nowhere near as good as his!
Thank you for your faithfulness that doesn’t ever shift or change. Thank you that EVERY SINGLE time I look back on a problem I see how you worked it out or changed my heart about the issue because you know the behind the scenes stuff I don’t know. Just like I want my kids to trust me because I know more than they do, please help me to trust you every day and do what you say even if it means for me to do nothing and wait for you to do everything. I love you so much. Please forgive my worry that is actually a lack of trust while I think I’m trusting in you and I’m really not – that’s embarrassing! Thank you for loving me and helping me anyway! And I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
