1 Samuel 26:23-24 New International Version (NIV)
The Lord rewards everyone for their righteousness and faithfulness. The Lord delivered you into my hands today, but I would not lay a hand on the Lord’s anointed. 24 As surely as I valued your life today, so may the Lord value my life and deliver me from all trouble.
I was talking with someone about life and how God honors faithfulness. We go through things of life that seems like God takes forever to answer us. How much longer long God will this take? We have questions and wonders about life. As you continue to be faithful, God will continue to be faithful. We just need to remember that our timing isn't always God's timing.
1 Chronicles 16:34 New International Version (NIV)
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
God's love is forever and our faithfulness shows him love back
I was thinking about friendships. Each friends holds a special spot in our lives. Different levels of trust and knowing who we can truly count on. It's not okay to expect friends to know how to help you. You need to reach out for them to reach back. However, some friends just don't get where you are in life and that's what makes us different. I have found that God's remains the same and I am the one who often changes. It's becomes time to reset our minds for a new day.
YOU CAN COUNT ON ME ~
Have you ever heard that statement, count me in? You want to be apart of something and even a small part is better than no spot at all. I find that serving God is much like this. I have told God to count me in and I want to do his will. I wake up everyday to give thanks for a new day and the health to do the things I must do plus want to do in life.
2 Timothy 2:13 New International Version (NIV)
if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
There are times of life when our faith is low or maybe we don't feel faith at all. God remains the same and we can go running back to him. Praying daily is a key to changing you and the communication with God. I had times when I needed to call someone to spur me on. We can get tired when things don't change quickly and the big wonder of things appear. There is something about knowing God is able that keeps me going and I hope you feel that too.
What are you calling out to God for today? Go ahead and trust him. Trust him in the impossible things to human eye and believe big in a miracle. Sometimes God choses to make us well by a healing process. In that process, lean toward God. A new day is here and God is able to make this your day of answered prayers.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
