Promises never fail

Isaiah reminds us, ‘O Lord, You are our Father’ (Isaiah 64:8 – https://bit.ly/2YQEVLl) God is your Father, and He’s a perfect Father. A perfect Father only has loving thoughts towards you. He only wants the very best for you (though sometimes – often! – what you think is best may be different from what He knows is best).

Let these lyrics from Bethel encourage you today as you decide to keep trusting in your perfect Father: ‘I know Your thoughts, Your plans for me, are good. And I know You hold my future and my hope. Your promises never fail’ (https://bit.ly/2ZHRU5L)

Beauty from mess

You don’t have to have lived very long to know our planet is seriously messed up. People and places and the way life rolls – it all reminds us daily that sin broke the world and we’re a mess. If that were the end of the story, there would be no hope, and no point to living.

BUT GOD! Listen to David’s song of gratitude and confidence in a good and perfect God who makes life worth living: ‘God’s way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.’ (Psalm 18:30). That’s good news!

Perfectly on time

What do you want more than anything else in the world? A thing? A relationship? A horrible situation to be fixed?

God knows exactly what you’re longing for. It might feel like He doesn’t care, or He’s too busy, because He isn’t coming through for you NOW. But that’s not true. God is always perfectly patient and perfectly on time. Sometimes His timing won’t make sense to you, but you can trust He always has good reasons for letting you wait.

‘The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake…’ (2 Peter 3:9 – http://bit.ly/2TLDLzK)

Crazy Promises

Have you ever thought what God is asking you to do is crazy? Like, when God asked Ananias to go to see Saul, the angry Christian killer in Acts 9:11-15 – he must have thought God was mad. In fact, he even says so, yet God shows him another perspective.

Ananias only saw who Saul was, but God shows him what Saul would become. And because Ananias overcame human logic and trusted and obeyed God, many people were saved.

What is God asking you to do?

Pray that God would help you see His point of view and give you the courage to trust Him and act.
