Here is a page from that little magazine Our Daily Bread, August 24/08. Happy Sunday.
God has not promised that your life will be easy; indeed it may not be. But he has promised to sustain you in your struggle and uphold you with his mighty arm. If you trust him, he will empower you to make your way bravely through extraordinary difficulty with hope, faith and love. God will not allow you to be pressed beyond endurance.
This photo of my newest great-grandchild and her father spelled trust to me the moment I looked at it. It reminded me of Isaiah 41:10…“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
From the time of your birth to life’s final day, He will hold you up. Happy Sunday.
Is there anything more comforting in this world than to be able to trust completely?
I am starting out my brand new year once again placing complete trust in God because I know that I can trust him with my life and all its happenings. I sometimes get excited waiting to see what He has in store for me next.
When we trust in the Lord completely it is not difficult to get excited about what He does in our lives. I have often said to Him, “Lord, I hope you know what you are doing in this situation because I sure don’t.” And lo and behold, the perfect solution is manifested in ways that I never would have expected…or sometimes, even chosen.
A question I often get asked is, “How did you get such deep faith?” The answer has to be that I seem to, without knowing it, have trusted God all of my life…and with my life.
Yesterday, I came upon this scripture which seems to sum it up perfectly for me: “Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.” Psalm 22: 9-10 NIV
I’m not sure that any better explanation is available. In whom do you put your trust? Happy Sunday.
