Our Faithful God


Somedays don’t we just feel like a broken record down here on this planet? We keep asking for the things we feel God has put on our hearts and we keep asking and asking, and asking. We see glimmers and then we don’t! We see help, and then we don’t. And we keep asking, seeking, and waiting for His answer. He’s delighted when we do, but a grateful heart for His faithfulness in the past is an awesome way to say thank you for the next miracle in His hand. Oh He’s so faithful isn’t He? He’s so faithful to stand by us and watch over us and care for us daily. One of my favorite verses found in Lamentations 2: 22, 23 reminds us of His mercies, new every morning, “The LORD’S loving-kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Oh what a divine blessing to know this God of love and faithfulness at every turn of our lives.

Moses knew too, and was very aware of God’s faithfulness, when he penned a amazing reference for his God, to His people in Deuteronomy 32: 3,4, “I will proclaim the name of the Lord. How glorious is our God. He is The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.” Oh yeah, he knew of God’s power. He had witnessed powerful miracles in the wilderness as he led the Israelites from slavery to freedom and ultimately to the brink of the promise; the land of milk and honey! He’d seen the power! He’d witnessed God’s hand of provision! He’d experienced the real – life impossible made possible. He knew, that he knew, that he knew His God was a dependable and an honest promise keeper. So, let’s you and I and we and us, remember we serve the same faithful God who is so trustworthy for the days ahead, in the hard places along the way.

Oh yeah, He’s faithful and when Timothy returned from Thessalonica with the good news that the church had not abandoned their faith because of dreadful opposition, but rather stood strong and continued in faith and love it was Good news to Paul’s ears and his first letter to the church in Thessalonica explodes with joy at such a confirmation. He closes off his letter in 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24, with a blessing to believers confirming the promises of God. “Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until your Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for He who calls you is faithful and He also will bring it to pass.”

Pray on beautiful soul for those things on your heart, and be thankful that we pray to a faithful God who hears, and keeps His word.

Beautifully Imperfect

So here we sit, you and I, in our imperfect world in our imperfect state and you gotta know that you are beautifully imperfect wherever you sit and the enemy’s attack on you and I and we and us, is far more about your future potential and what God is going to do with you, than your past failure! It’s not about who you’ve been, or what you’ve done, but in the enemy’s mind, it’s all about who you may become!! Oh yeah, he’s roaming to see who might be easy prey, so he can do what he can in his power to bring defeat into your thoughts. If he can get into your thinking pattern he’s well on his way. Don’t go there! Don’t let him catch you off guard without the spiritual armour in tact.

If you’ve been raised out of the pit of broken to a higher height and if God has brought you out of a hard time to bless you in your walk with Him, and lead you into challenging places of His work and ministry, then it’s a given that you are under the enemy’s surveillance camera! Spiritual armour is a must have in these days where we may be easily tracked to be set up for failure! You gotta know those same all-powerful, heavenly, sovereign arms that lifted you out of the mire to set you free, still have hold of you to pull you into and under the safety and shelter of divine protection! It’s a safe place here with the Saviour, where the enemy’s lies can’t reach you and his tricks can’t deceive you, and his half-truths can’t harm you.

Oh yeah, you beautiful one that you are, you are God’s child, loved by Him, protected by Him, and guarded by Him. Stay safe there for now, under His wings sheltered from the storm, the enemy and all that comes and goes. For now, find peace there until the outside chaos is hushed and the evil one has been silenced and leaves to let you be.

Free from his tricks for now, and It’ll just be for now and for a time, but it’s here with the Saviour, and our Redeemer that we gain new strength for the road and what’s ahead. Oh yeah, it’s not about your past at all, so let it go; freed and forgiven you are in Christ and now it’s about your future, your potential, your victory in Christ, that’s prime target for defeat, but as a child of God, You gotta know that you know that you know, that He has his stamp of approval all over you and your imperfections, and who you are in Him is awesome, and not anything can get in the way of His work, and His desire for you!

David knew His God was a God of Truth, his Refuge, his Fortress, his Rock, his Redeemer, and His Saviour and in Psalm 31 he voices it so beautifully, when he says, and ~ Say it with him, “In you O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in Your righteousness. Turn Your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress, for the sake of Your name lead and guide me. Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Into Your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD the God of Truth.
Psalm 31: 1-5

So between Good Friday and Easter Sunday it’s Saturday. A quiet day of just rest! Oh yeah, how quiet is our soul when it’s filled with great remorse and sadness over how we’ve handled the past day! How we’ve mocked, scorned, ridiculed and gone along with the crowd simply because of our humanity? But today, there’s hope lying in that grave of our guilt and remorse. All that guilt that follows all that stuff that we’ve just done to follow the crowd, to enjoy selfish pleasures, to crucify our Lord, well, a grace greater than our sin says “It’s not the end; but only the beginning.”

You see, on that third day, that heavy stone was rolled back and our Lord, rose out of that tomb leaving all that it stood for, behind, as He walked into the dawn of a brand new day. A new element of heavenly dimension! He entered into a new eternity with a new life, as he entered into a timely, pivotal point in history for the whole world. It was a world changer, a defining moment for humanity, where His victory over death was defeated, and the enemy’s best shot at defeating our Lord, was overturned, overthrown and overruled. The enemy’s best shot to defeat Christ and all He stood for, and all that He came to accomplish, lost, and what’s left, when death, the biggest thing ever that could thwart life, meets abundant life here and Eternal life forever: a victory so much greater?

What more can be said on the matter? It’s over! It’s done! It’s finished! Truth didn’t bury! Death didn’t win! The grave is empty! Our guilt is gone! Our Lord has risen! Our Saviour reigns and our salvation is made available. Our forgiveness is free for the asking and our guilt is lifted. Our debt is paid and our hope is eternal!

Wow, just wow! Talk about grace! Talk about mercy! After what we’ve just done, we are now free to go free and free to enter into that pivotal point that went down in history and see it working in our own lives as followers of this victorious Christ. We are free! It’s a life changer and friends, beautiful things are happening behind that impossible, rolled stone today. You are free to go free from your guilt and anxiety, worries, cares and fears! God has this one and His empty grave is our victory!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
1 Peter 1:3

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26

Careful How You Think

Proverbs 14:22

“Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”

Proverbs 3:27 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” It’s pretty straightforward isn’t it? We will become what we allow our minds to dwell on. Have you had experience with this principle? Have you found yourself saturated in worry only to become paranoid? Have you been immersed in a fear so strong, that it paralyzes you? Have you been bound in strongholds so tightly that you feel claustrophobic, hopeless and helpless to free yourself? It’s our minds, and our thinking that gets us into these horrible places of ruin. The mind is the first line of defense, and the target for the enemy’s entry into a life and a temptation is his way in. It’s his foot in the door, and if we give him a foot in he can get our mind, he can get our heart and he can get our life so entwined in sin that life becomes hopeless.

Let’s hide 2 Corinthians 10:5 in our back pocket and engrave it on our hearts as a reminder to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”.

Our actions and behavior will follow our thoughts, therefore.
We must take action in our thought life. As believers and disciples of Christ, Let’s be challenged today to fix our mind on truth, holiness and the excellence of Christ as we hear Paul’s words to the persecuted Christians in the Church of Philippi, in Philippians 5: 8, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

We cannot think defeat and expect victory. We can’t think the worst, and expect the best. We will become as our thoughts direct us. Think on what is good and find joy and hope, love and faithfulness! Defeat the enemy; Think victory and behave victoriously.
