“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was IMPOSSIBLE for death to keep its hold on him. David said about him: ” ‘I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.” Acts 2:22-27
“My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride. When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?” Psalm 56:2-4
Do you believe that He is more than enough for you today? Is it okay to admit that you don’t trust Him with everything in you and in your life? Or that you are having a tough time trusting Him right now? You might wonder, “Is His grace and love for me really that strong?” YES!!!!!! He’s more than enough…. He’s big enough, strong enough, secure enough, and loving enough to hear the really tough stuff. And He is big enough to shoulder your pain. He is not taken off guard by you or where you are. He was in yesterday, He is in today, and He will be in all of your tomorrows!!
There are many times in my life that my circumstances didn’t equate to what I understood the Bible to teach and my trust and love for God waxed cold. But thanks be to God that His love for me never did!!!!! Part of growing in your faith is learning to be honest with a God who already knows your deepest thoughts. Because in exposing the parts that we are keeping from Him we reveal just how great He is, how approachable He is, how safe He is and just how much we need Him. It is then that the word of God becomes a living love letter and the words that I misunderstood in the agony of my circumstances become crystal clear in the epiphany of His love. And I realize that nothing is impossible with God, He is my healer, and He really is all that I ever need.
So trust Him! Trust Him with all of your heart. Run to Him! Trust Him with the areas you’ve kept from Him for so long…… those areas that frighten you beyond words….. let the pain of life melt away in His presence and you will realize that….Nothing is Impossible with God, NOTHING!!!!
A great reminder, Melissa! Sooo good!
