Truths 4 Today

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes (okay, OFTEN) I have overwhelming thoughts about my circumstances. Worry robs me of joy. Worry is a form of fear, and too much fear leads to faltering faith. It leads to taking back the trust I have finally starting feeling towards a God I denied pretty much my whole life. Oh, sure. I knew there was something bigger outside of myself. But, honestly…I kinda attributed that entity as like an alien; something just up in space observing us ants and either laughing or shaking his head in disappointment at our ridiculousness.

My former perception of God does not help my peace of mind. My former perception feeds into the lie that I am all alone and there is no one or nothing that is here to support me, love me, and actually cares how my life turns out. That former perception is a lie. And I would think there are many “ants” who perceive God in a similar fashion. I am telling you right now, IT IS A LIE. Here are some truths:

Our God is faithful.

So The Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For The Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will be gracious if you ask for help. He will surely reply to the sound of your cries.- Isaiah 30:18-19

Our God wants for us a great life.

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.- John 10:10

Our God is all powerful.

It is The Lord who provides the sun to light the day and the moon and stars to light the night, and who stirs the sea into roaring waves.-Jeremiah 31:35

Our God keeps his promises.

“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day,” says The Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their heart. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And they will not need to teach their neighbors nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know The Lord.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says The Lord. “And I will forgive their wickedness and I will never again remember their sins.” Jeremiah 31:33-34

Our God loves us unconditionally.

He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. -Ephesians 1:7

Seriously. Once you dive in and study the Word of God, you see all kinds of correlations and truths spilling off the pages. Truths that are relevant to your current situation right this very moment! It is no coincidence that God told Jeremiah of the coming of Christ long before Jesus was born. It is no coincidence when you are feeling helpless or hopeless or lost that attending to your spiritual conditioning by going to church helps you see the road in, and the road home. Hang on for dear life. Your church is here to help you. Don’t have a church? Check out Evergreen here
