How awesome is it that we worship a God who is good “all the time.” There is nothing that we can do to cause God to change. This gives us freedom from the fear that our actions will cause God to become a tyrant.
God loves us regardless of how we feel about him, or how we act. His love for us is a solid foundation on which we can build our lives. While we may choose wrong things and face the consequences of those choices, we can never do anything that will cause God to stop loving us.
God has a plan for each of our lives. This can be easy to forget during the hustle and bustle of living. So when things do not go as “we” planned it is easy to feel as if the ground beneath us is going to give way. Yet, as we follow after God we can rest assured that he will make a way for he is in control, and we will see good in the land of the living.
Repeat as necessary
God is good, he loves me, and has a good plan for my life!
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. – Psalm 56:3
I don’t think there is anything harder than standing strong in your faith when your knees are shaking, It is not easy to be resolved to “wait and see what the Lord has done for you” when all you may want to do is hide under the covers.
This approach of hiding my head in the sand is one I often took before realizing that running to God and not away from him was the key to putting things right.
Being a Christian is not about always having it all together. It is about knowing who to turn to when things are falling apart. This world is rough sometimes and as a result, you may feel as if you are freefalling to your doom.
When this happens, instead of sinking into depression, look up and keep your eyes fixed on God and freefall into the arms of the one who knows and loves you best.
He loves you and has not left you. He has a hope and plan for your life. If you want to see those plans come to fruition then you must trust him.
When fear comes banging on your door, get alone with God and pour out your heart to him. Then get in the word and allow him to pour out his heart to you.
Trusting God does not come easy at first but as you begin to continually see his faithfulness it will soon become as easy as falling off a log:)
