Every day the Lord speaks to me through His Word. I see something new every time I open its pages and He speaks to my heart, my mind and my spirit the very thing I need. He never fails me there. Most often I just tuck it away in my heart, as Mary did, (But Mary was keeping within herself all these things (sayings), weighing and pondering them in her heart. Luke 2:19) knowing that line upon line---precept upon precept He's weaving together a beautiful tapestry. I long to learn Him so intimately. To KNOW Him....and His character and WHO He really is......and long to be SO aware of His presence in my life that it is ALL I know. ALL I stand on. ALL I believe. ALL I HOPE in. ALL I rest in.
Today He reminded me of His faithfulness to perform His Word. I was encouraged and felt such faith and anticipation and excitement and expectation rise up in my spirit. We all need to be reminded. But I know someone especially needs to hear this word today. So be encouraged, my friend. He is faithful to perform His Word.
ALL of it. Every last word.
"I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it." Jeremiah 11:12
He said it.
That's enough for me to stand on.
To rest in.
Find peace in.
To HOPE for.
Expecting GREAT things.........................
Because my GOD is a GREAT God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is not one single promise He will fail to perform. Why?
FOR HIS NAME'S SAKE!
TO MAKE HIS NAME GREAT!
So that all men might come to know Him!!!
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. Joshua 21:45
If He said it? You can rest ASSURED and be confident He will be faithful to SEE TO [it]. He will DO it! If you are expecting GREAT things----then my GREAT God will never fail you there! If you need a miracle? I know a God who can do the IMPOSSIBLE! If you need PEACE? I know the One who can calm a raging sea-------surely He will bring peace to your heart. If you need GRACE? There is enough for EACH moment of our lives. He saw to it when Jesus defeated death, hell and the grave because of Grace. The Bible from cover to cover is FULL to overflowing with HOPE and PEACE and GRACE and FAITH and evidence of a miracle working, faithful, loving, merciful, GREAT God!
Whatever you need------He will SEE to it.
I know this.
I am confident He will. So be STILL and KNOW He is God..........and that His Word is enough.
