'There is Hope' Day 5

Today's Verse:

For He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”

Hebrews 13:5b


Today's Thoughts:

Have you been through a season where you wondered, "Where are you God? Can you see me? Do you know what is happening right now? What in the world are you doing?" I sure have. I wonder about His timing sometimes. However, one thing that brings me great comfort is that His word says He will never give up on us, never leave us, never forsake us. Therefore, even when it feels as if He is far away, He's not, He can't be. We just cannot see our lives from His perspective.

The song below has meant so much to Adam and I. We clung to its truth for dear life in a difficult season. Some of the lyrics go like this, "Never once did we ever walk alone. Never once did you leave us on our own. You are faithful. God you are faithful. Every step we are breathing in your grace. Evermore we will be breathing our your praise. You are faithful. God you are faithful."

Sometimes it's good for the soul to be reminded that He is here with us and He is faithful.

'But Jesus said to them, "....blessed {happy, spiritually secure, favored by God} are those who have not seen and yet still believe." ' John 20:29


Today's Prayer:

Jesus, we are sorry for doubting you, you goodness, your timing, your sovereignty. Thank you for patiently loving us and allowing us ask you hard questions. Thank you for promising never to leave us; we find abundant comfort in this truth. Help even this trial to expand our trust in you. We need you. We are keenly aware of our neediness right now. Thank you Jesus for being indefinitely faithful.
