God and Trusting His Character

Leave a comment


What man is faithful in such a manner as God?

None, I say.

God alone is Infinitely Faithful. ~ AHutchinson ♥

I must give another shout out and much thanks to A New Thing Ministries and Kim Potter.

Her Devotional / Motivational e-mail blogs are often the defining temper for my day. God so often uses Kim’s insights to answer, guide and boost me in my day to day walk with Christ.

I must say I am often pushed to study The Word of God through Kim’s inspiration. Adding to my already church fed desire to study! So I thank my Pastor Santhosh for this too! I find the character of God amazing. It is often my intent of study to reinforce the definition of God’s Character, which I continually find, as it is written, unchanged.

The character of our God is ever enduring faithfulness.

If there is no road, He will make one.

If there is no water, He will create a river in the desert.

If there seems no way of escape, He will make a way…for us…for YOU.

I have been battling doubt in regard to my health. With the drastic diagnosis for my heart and health, and the equally drastic changes to my lifestyle, my frustrations have led to a niggling worry within me.

I continue to speak life. I hardly ever speak the actual diagnosis, refusing to give it any air to breath within me. Yet, my humanity, my sinful nature, wants to question God. Sadly, for the first time since I became saved, that I can remember, I have actually caught myself asking why…this angers me, at me.

I see myself as a strong woman of Faith! Yet, I find this circumstance has rocked my core.

I thank God that my core is His Spirit, because while I feel shaken, His Spirit feeds me the nourishment that has been provided through His Word. While this too proves God’s faithful character, it proves, as well, how much work I have still to do in me.

Therefore I return to my ‘go to’ scripture…Exodus 14:14.

Today, though, I read more than just the simple revelation that God fights for me…I read through to the defining instruction…Yeah! I’m a genius, 🙂

 Exodus 14:13-15…

Moses told the Israelites in Exodus 14:13-15
“Fear not! Be still and be confident. Watch how God rescues us, the amazing salvation that He will work for you today! You see these troubles before you? You will never see them again.

You see…the Lord fights your battles for you, if you trust and be still. If you remain peaceful and at rest. No exertion is required on your part, let God fight…after all He said it is His fight. Be still.

Well then, while waiting, Moses became anxious and cried out to the Lord.

 
Which of us would not have, as the army of trouble advanced before them? Then God said…’ Why do you cry to me, Moses? Tell the people to move forward…'”

If we trust God and move forward in Christ, God will go before us and make the path clear…Is45:2, 1 Cor 10:13

I am pressing toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of Christ…Phil 3:14

…focusing on God ♥

 
Blessings My Loves ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
