God Is Faithful To His People

One of the [many] blogs I follow had a really encouraging post. I can’t remember who it was but I do remember two of the verses… The reason I remember the verses is because they were very encouraging. For some reason within the past week or so I know of quite a few people who are struggling with one thing or another. These verses hit me. I wanted to share with all of you…

Exodus 3:7

" I have surely seen the oppression of my people...and have heard their cry... for I know their I have come down to deliver them... "

It says GOD HEARS our cries! HE KNOWS our sorrows! How awesome is that?!? God knows what we are going through… and He will deliver us. He is faithful to His people!

1st Peter 5:10

" And the God of all Grace....after you have suffered awhile will himself restore you and make you steadfast. To him be the power forever and ever amen. "

We are so strong in faith when we are on top of the mountain & things are going great… but when we are down in the valley & everything is going wrong – our faith is weaker. {unless I am the only one} Sometimes we may wonder if God is there? If He is going to help us out of the trouble we are in? We look to our problem instead of looking UP at HIM.  This verse shows after our ‘trial’ is over, God WILL restore us. Our trials make our faith stronger. When it’s over we can look back & see that it was Him who got us through it. Then hopefully we can also learn – next time we are going through something difficult… look to HIM. Not the problem. Not to ourselves to do it.

“Apart from Him, we can do nothing” (John 15:5)

God is faithful to his people.

Are you His?

Life In Him
