"...remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is." -2 Timothy 2:13b
Remember some fifteen to twenty years ago, someone went all over America painting on posts, signs, buildings, bridges, etc, the simple phrase, "TRUST JESUS". All will not agree, that's the best way to send the message, but all must agree that's a great message. We all experience times when circumstances feel unbearable, prayers appear to go unanswered, and God seems distant. When that happens, we may wonder if He is the same as we once believed Him to be. During such periods of helplessness, faith falters for some people yet grows stronger for others. What is it that can cause such opposite responses to suffering? The key is simply one's understanding of and trust in God's faithfulness.
This term means that the Lord never changes—He always does what is right, remains true to His promises, and is 100 percent reliable. In other words, we can trust our almighty God, regardless of our situation or attitude. We can trust His heart. Because He wants the very best for us, though in order to get us there, sometimes is seems we go through what is not the best. Just trust Him.
"BRIGHTLY DOTH HIS SPIRIT SHINE
INTO THIS POOR HEART OF MINE.
WHILE HE LEADS I CANNOT FALL,
TRUSTING JESUS THAT IS ALL.
SINGING IF MY WAY IS CLEAR,
PRAYING IF THE PATH IS DREAR;
IF IN DANGER, FOR HIM CALL,
TRUSTING JESUS THAT IS ALL."
God bless you and yours and remember that you are loved!!!
