Loving Father

If I am not convinced that God is a loving father, then I question Him about every circumstance in my life. If I’m suffering, I ask “Why”? If all is good, I feel loved. Yesterday I read a post by Tony Evans.

Trials must first pass through God’s hands to reach you. Trust Him.

I can trust those who am am confident love me. My loving father is always looking out for me even when sickness, hurt, pain, confusion, etc. come into my life. I know I have a loving Father. How about you?

Uncertainty

uncertain-4

“In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.”

Psalm 94:19, NKJV

It is the uncertainty of life that causes us anxiety, fear and many other unnecessary emotions.

  • We worry about what the results of our test are going to be!
  • We worry if we are going to pass a test!
  • We worry about our jobs!
  • We worry about our children!
  • We worry about our family!
  • We worry about our money!
  • We worry about our monty! (sorry thought you needed that mentioned twice)
  • We worry about our meeting with the boss!
  • We worry if we don’t have something to worry about!

The truth is the only certainty in life is God (the Trinity), His Word and His Work. It is certain that He is going to do it His way. So here are a few things you can be certain of today.

  • God is God and you are not!
  • God is good! (1 Tim 4:4)
  • God is loving! (1 John 4:8)
  • God is merciful! (Rom 9:16)
  • God is gracious! (Rom 16:20)
  • God is powerful! (Genesis 1:1)
  • God is patient! (Rom 2:4)
  • God is informed! (John 16:30)

GOD CARES! Trust Him even you you can’t see Him!

When You Don’t Understand – Continued

A little more about “When You Don’t Understand”. I have heard so many times the past few days the statement, “I just don’t understand.” I think there are probably many times that we think we understand but in reality we don’t. I often find myself trying to figure out what God is up to. Sometimes I think I have it figured out and other times I remain in confusion. God has not called me to understanding but obedience. Consider this verse.

Proverbs 3:5 (ESV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

It is my understanding that creates the difficulty. I can go to the Bible and gain much understanding. However, it is not just understanding it is spiritual understanding. This I understand. Continue reading
