Knowing And Believing

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my
helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to
me?”                                 ( Hebrews 13:5-6 )

 

The Word of God is alive and real! Get it into you by studying then when circumstances arise to trouble you,the Word of God will raise up that standard to keep you focused. Never will I leave you or forsake you,powerful truth we can totally depend on at all times. Even when we are having pity parties God will not forget us,even when we’re in the midst of heart wrenching trials God will not never leave us. When you know and believe God and His Word even though your circumstances have not changed,hope keeps you standing. God shall bring “it” to pass,it being whatever He has promised you. Right now you maybe seeing everything but what God has promised you,but if you keep believing “it shall come to pass”! God is our all wise and all knowing helper that will will always honor his Word,fear cannot even keep God away for “great is His faithfulness”.

It is a wonderful thing to be sure of God’s help at all times “Hallelujah”!

The One!

John was shunned , lonely, misunderstood and forgotten by many! We’ve been there many times feeling as if no one, not even our Great and Faithful God knew where we were, or understood what we were going through.  So John wanted to be sure this Jesus, that he was giving his all for was The One. So he sent his disciples to find out, Jesus sent John this word saying

Luke 7:22-23 NKJV

Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them.  And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

And how often we question God for the same reason. God does know where we are and yes He is The One and true God that understands all we’re going through. Not only that but He knows why it’s necessary for us. An it’s so important to know that Jesus was not offended by John’s question, but sent the answer, bringing peace to his beloved servant. And He has also given us this Assurance that He is The One.

John 14:6 NKJV

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

In The Garden

Even in beautiful places there can be so much sadness . We don’t have a clue as to how crushed Jesus was doing this time .

Matthew 26:38-39 NKJV

Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.1-cd

But this does let us know that Jesus understands when we are in beautiful places and full of darkness . When we feel sad ,confused ,alone and full of doubt and fear we can look to Him who knows and cares for us. For he felt crushed beyond belief and God sustained him. Even though we have the word of God to hold onto there are times when it seems as if we cannot go another step ! Once again we must remind ourselves to look to Him for he did say …
Acts 14:22 NKJV

strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”

2 Timothy 3:12( NKJV )Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

Hebrews 2:17-18 NKJV

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Sometimes our trials and tribulations come at us so fast it makes us tremble,but God has and always will bring us through. I am so glad that Jesus understands when we have many sad times in beautiful places!
