The LORD is faithful and steadfast. He is without change. He loved us before He spoke the world into existence and that never changed, even though we rebelled and turned against Him. He rescued us from our own failures while we resisted Him. This is a God who can be trusted. He can be gloried. He is worthy of praise, honor and glory, forevermore.
The works of His hand are self-evident within creation. You only have to lift your eyes to the heavens to taste and see that He is good. He has created the entire earth with harmony and beauty to show the power of His might. He hold the entire universe together in perfect balance without blemish. He too can be trusted to hold us in small storms of our lives.
When life becomes difficult for me and challenges seem overwhelming, I don't look at the storm. Instead I look to Him. Instead of focusing on what people have said or done which hurts me, I look to see what good could come from it. I can do this with confidence because the LORD promised to work all things together for my good. And it happened so I know He allowed it. He only does what is good so I try to find the lesson in it.
Even on the bigger storms of life, I still look to Him. My favorite thing to do is to calm my spirit and close my eyes and envision Him seated on His throne, surrounded by glory which fills the entire throne room. I look to His hands firmly planted on the handrails. I look at His fingers, to see if they move. But they don't. I look to His eyes to see if He turns away. But He doesn't. He doesn't move. He is unmovable. Unshakable. This is my strength. His absolute power just radiates in these moments. He fills me with peace and confidence in these moments. He meets me at these encounters with His majestic love. That is all He ever wanted, a relationship with me, and you. His people.
In the good and the bad, He is faithful. The LORD is always good. Taste and see that the LORD is good. He has never failed me yet, and He isn't going to change. He will never leave nor forsake you either. AMEN
