Our world can be so disappointing – people lying to get ahead, just telling you what they think you want to hear. Often, never actually intending to do what they say they will do.
God is just the opposite.
He always does what he says he is going to do.
He always keeps his promises.
He doesn’t always do things the way that we think he should but – then again –
he is God and we’re not –
he is perfect and we’re not –
we have a 3.5 lb brain while his is infinite and eternal –
we just need to accept that his ways are better than our’s. I need to believe that and stand firm each day on the fact that God loves me and wants the best for me.
God and I have a personal relationship and he tells me about my part of this relationship in Leviticus 26:3-13. Let’s all underline this in our Bibles and believe it.
My part – keep his commands and obey him.
He will bless my labor, what I do.
I will have food to eat and a safe place to live.
He will give me peace – I will lie down at night without fear.
He will remove danger and my enemies from my life. I will have victory over my enemies.
God will look on me with favor and keep all of his promises.
I will prosper. He will be my God and I will be his daughter.
I need to believe this and move forward confidently – with my head held high and my eyes focused on my Father.
Then I will receive the blessings of obedience.
Amen. May it be so, Abba Father.
