My constant

Sometimes during my quiet time, word just jump off the page of my Bible and connect deeply to my heart.  They get me thinking and feeling and really understanding God’s character.

Yesterday, I wrote about wanting to have faith to just bravely step out into God’s plan like Rebekah did.  I mentioned that sometimes I question and sometimes I even doubt.

Then today, these two verses just flew off of the page and landed squarely in my heart.  They were like the part b to my thoughts from yesterday.  These verses were like a healing balm for a questioning soul.  They comfort me and remind me that God cares for me enough to encourage me when I’m weak.  I love when God does that!

“…Do not be afraid, for I am with you…”  Gen 26:24b

“…Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it…”  Gen 28:16b

I will admit it.  I have trust issues.  My past has given me many opportunities to doubt people and their words.  However, God is not ‘people’.

God is God.

His promises are true.

He is faithful.

He promises to be with us and he gently reminds us that even if we don’t SEE or FEEL him, He has been there the whole time.

I don’t know about you, but those words cover any doubts that I might have.  They show me that I am completely safe in trusting My God in ALL things.  He is my constant and He has proven himself trustworthy.

Love and blessings,

I just finished reading your blog post for today! Just had to comment! I am so glad that that phrase, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you” is repeated so very often in the Bible. I need to hear it often so that I will get closer to trusting in it, living my belief in it! Every age needs to hear it often and practice living it! As I ponder getting older, and all my different life circumstances swirl around me, it should really be part of my everyday prayer!! Thanks for stressing this in your blog! You have jolted me into a renewed prayer practice!! Love to you, Bobbie!!

This just made my day! :). Love you too!
