In all of your ways acknowledge Him
He will carry you through.

He Who is calling you to Himself is faithful to keep you
He is utterly trustworthy!

Trust in the Lord’s Faithfulness

November 13, 2013

All we’ve seen of God’s provision

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 29 So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. -Mt 6:28-31 NKJV

Teaches us that the Lord is faithful
His faithfulness is an essential part of who He is at all times!

O Lord God of hosts, who is a mighty one like unto You, O Lord? And Your faithfulness is round about You [an essential part of You at all times]. -Ps89:8 AMP

He is UTTERLY trustworthy to keep{care for, guard} you and me!

And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

24Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you]. -1Thess5:23-24 AMP

Trust in the Lord’s Faithfulness
His eye is on the sparrow
He cares for you and me

Know you are held and treasured in His sight. -Isa 43:4, 49:16

The Lord Equips

March 22, 2013

The Lord equips those He calls!

For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). -2Pe1:3 AMP

When you are weak, His power and strength are shown most effective

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! -2Co12:9 AMP

When you feel like you are losing your mind, His power and love provide calm self-control.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. -2Ti1:7 AMP

The Lord wants to use you
Trust Him to equip you to do what you can do
AND He will do the rest!

Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you] -1Th5:24

.

Lord remind me that whatever You have called me to do or face today, that You are faithful to give me Your power in my weakness. When I feel inadequate, help me to do what I can and rely on Your strength and power to do the rest. Open my eyes to see Your mighty hand keeping me as I trust in You. I pray in Your name, my Lord Jesus Christ.

.
Blessed be the Lord my ROCK who equips me for battle–whom shall I fear? -Ps144:1,18:1-2,27:1
.

.


What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
-Ro8:31

He’s Always Been Faithful to Me

August 6, 2011

Isaiah 41:10-13Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
11 “ Behold, all those who were incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them and not find them—
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing,
As a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’

He’s Always Been Faithful by Sara Groves

Morning by morning I wake up to find
The power and comfort of God’s hand in mine
Season by season I watch Him, amazed
In awe of the mystery of His perfect ways
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me.

I can’t remember a trial or a pain
He did not recycle to bring me gain
I can’t remember one single regret
In serving God only, and trusting His hand
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me.

This is my anthem, this is my song
The theme of the stories I’ve heard for so long
God has been faithful, He will be again
His loving compassion, it knows no end
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful, He’s always been faithful
He’s always been faithful to me.

Prayer:
Morning by morning let us remember His great faithfulness and be strengthened with the power and comfort of His mighty right hand. May God bless each of us with unwavering faith in His promises today.

1 Thessalonians 5:24The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.
