The 'Only' Reason
Psalm 121:2 " , Maker of heaven and earth."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 "
God has shown me " , Maker of heaven and earth." I've been on death's door, or so was thought, but God knew it wasn't my time to be called Home yet. I know what it's like to have breath and no breath, but I also know Who gave me breath to life and Who sustains it every minute of my life.
"In affliction, we learn the lesson of the necessity of living by faith and not feeling or perception. God teaches this by the uncertainty of life's changes: hope today, and tomorrow at the point of death; good news today, and bad tomorrow; comfort here, and soul-wounding terror there. O the ebbs and flows of earthly hopes!" -- Thomas Case
Things to remember when faced with the uncertain times of of life:
1] None of us are untouchable to the woes of life. Trials draw us nearer to God, our Comforter, and He gives strength like no other.
2]We are to rely on God as a God of power and strength and a God all- sufficient for us.
3] Our confidence must come from God alone..not men or things of this earth. “But blessed is the one who trusts in the , whose is in him." Jeremiah 17:7
4] "We must see all our help laid up in God, in his power and goodness, his providence and grace; and from him we must expect it to come."
5] "He that made heaven and earth is sovereign Lord of all the hosts of both, and can make use of them as he pleases for the help of his people, and restrain them when he pleases from hurting his people."
6] God is bigger than any and all of our problems. May we turn our burdens and fears over to Him and patiently wait for His answers to our prayers.
