God is Faithful
I’ve been reminded of God’s faithfulness several times over the past few days.
On Sunday morning at church:
~We heard several testimonies of God’s faithfulness in the lives of people.
~We were reminded of His faithfulness in providing for a debt free facility during a time when
people’s jobs and finances took a big hit.
~We sang O God, Our Help In Ages Past, Isaac Watts’ ancient hymn, based on Psalm 90, that has brought comfort and encouragement to many over the centuries. It’s a reminder that the same God who has been with us through earlier trials will continue to guide us through whatever sorrows and challenges life will bring in the future.
Earlier Sunday morning:
~Our daily devotional, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young reminded us that each day we can turn to God at any point and He will not reject us. He will encourage us, give us the strength for each moment and all we need for each day. We can trust Him by relying on His empowering presence. (my paraphrase)
“God’s voice has never misspoken…
His faithfulness has never betrayed…
His care has never faltered…
His kindness has never disappointed…
His love has never failed.
His love will not fail you now.”
– Roy Lessin
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”
Jeremiah 31:3 ESV
~We celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary
~a marriage designed in heaven
Widowed after a happy marriage of 34 years.He prays and asks God to select a wife for him, and to prepare her heart and identify her.
God selected the wife and identified her in a crowd of about 750 people.
The man, not expecting to hear God’s voice, says, “Now what do I do?”
And God helped the man and showed him the way to win her heart.
Alone for 10 years and not interested in dating much less getting married.
When caring friends suggested re-marrying might be God’s will for her, she would answer, “if it was God’s will that she married again, God would have to send the man, God would have to prove He sent the man, and God would have to change her heart.
And God sent the man, proved in numerous ways that He sent the man. And God changed her heart.
