3 Things God Taught Me
I wanted to start this blog with the truth about God. We live in a world where His name is misused and often hated by people. In a world where people talk about religion more than God Himself. There are many truths about who He is and what He promises, but these three I treasure. These are the three I thank Him for everyday.This is what HE has taught me about who He is. And through these truths, the void in my heart was filled.
3 Things God has Taught me
1. HE IS FAITHFUL
I lean on this daily. I thank God for this daily. No matter how hard my life is I can always count on His faithfulness. That things will come together because He works all things for our good. He turns every wrong into a right for his glory if you allow him to mold you.
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations -Psalm 100:5
The Lords loving kindness indeed never ceases, for His compassion's never fail. They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness -Lamentations 3:22-23 (NASB)
The Lord will answer every single one of our prayers in time. I think a lot of the time we mistake Gods timing for a lack of faithfulness. This couldn't be farther from the truth. We must remember that Gods timing is NOT our timing. That His way is NOT our way. But we also must remember that His timing is better than our timing and His ways our better than our ways. Sometimes we must be strengthened before He can answer a prayer and other times He will answer in a way that was different than what we thought. But no matter what God is FAITHFUL. The more we wait on Him. The more we trust Him. Than the more He will reveal is encouragement and answers.
This will empower you and start a fire within you, but we must be patient and wait in expectation knowing that He is faithful.
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice: in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation -Psalm 5:3
God is within her, she will not fall: God will help her at the break of day -Psalm 46:5
2. HIS LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL
Everyone wants to be loved and know that they are loved. When people don't have it, they will go looking for it often in all the wrong places. God will give you that love and better yet, His love is UNCONDITIONAL.
That means there is nothing you can ever do to make God not love you or love you less. This has eased my mind many times. When guilt overwhelms me I proclaim His unconditional love over my life. When my foot is slipping, His unconditional love supports my faith.
When I said, "My foot is slipping," your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolations brought joy to my soul -Psalm 94:18-19
Like any parent, The Lord wants to correct our steps. He doesn't want us to be in pain. But He will not force His love on us. We must choose to accept the love and allow it to fill our hearts.He is our Heavenly Father and He wants a relationship with us because He LOVES us.
For great is your love towards me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave -Psalm 86:13
3. HE IS TRUST WORTHY
I have struggled with trust a lot in my life. But God gives me the security that He is trust worthy. Although we need to be able to trust people, there are times where people will fall short. We are only human and that is bound to happen. Don't allow that to discourage you. Don't allow that to hinder & damage your relationships. Putting your full hope and trust in God will allow you to have peace in your mind and peace in your home.
The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy -Pslam 111:7
When times are hard...
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding -Proverbs 3:5
Sometimes we do not know why things happen. Times like that are the times to press in more to this truth and know that he is TRUST WORTHY.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose -Romans 8:28
he will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord -Psalm 112:7
PROCLAIM GODS TRUTHS OVER YOUR LIFE TODAY!
You taught me faithfulness ;through your unfailing love.
You taught me how to trust; you will forsake me NOT.
You pave the road for us; a firm place to stand.
You will not let us crumble; like the shifting sands.
