You Can Trust God

I think all parents have that one thing they tend to harp on. For me, it’s “be a person of your word.” It seems minor now – one child says they will play a certain game with another but a better option comes along and they change their mind. They’re never happy when I make them play whatever game they had promised to play with whichever sister they had made the promise. But I do it. I want to raise women of integrity.

When I read this morning’s #f260biblereadingplanreading, I was struck by the repetitive reminder by God that he was doing what he had promised generations ago to do.

God promised a Messiah and he was sending a Messiah. Scripture says that EVERY word of God proves true and that ALL of his promises are fulfilled in Jesus.

Not some. Not most. Not if you were extra good that day. Every word. Every promise. True. But we don’t want to wait for it.

Read Hebrews 11:13. Chapter 11 is the hall of faith. And do you know what it says about these faithful men and women of the Lord? They ALL died not having received the things promised. But they greeted them from a far.

Do you see that? They died not having received the Messiah they were promised but STILL believing that he was coming because they knew every. word. of. God. proves. true.

God reveals himself through his word. And what he is telling us today – what he is whispering to our weary hearts – is, “You can trust me.”

You can trust him with the hurt. You can trust him with your child. You can trust him with your dreams. You can trust him to do what he has promised.

You are loved.
