Retro One Thing 11/13/2011
Everyday we face all kind of uncertainties that can create a lot of worry and anxiety. It’s easy to daydream about living in a world full of the expected and not the unexpected. That would bring such peace wouldn’t it?
I’ve often counseled people over the years who were about to go into some situation that was full of uncertainties, where the only thing that they could be absolutely certain of was the God would be faithful. That is our Great certainty is this life that we can be confident in everyday. It’s our constant source of peace. There are a lot of things don’t know, but there is one thing I’m sure of all of the time, that in every circumstance, He will be faithful.
As one who is called to walk in faith, my faith is not in my faith. My faith rests securely in His faithfulness. Faith is like our eyes. You only know they are working when they are fixed on an object. Our object is the one who is always faithful.
So today, if you are facing a lot of uncertainly, just plunge into the peaceful reality that He is intimately involved in every area of your life and will be what he always is, Faithful. And if you don’t think you have much faith, that’s OK, just lean back and REST in HIS FAITHFULNESS. Oh, by the way, that is faith.
Have a great day in HIM.
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
