Recently, a huge thing came to a head! And I had a choice to believe what God had said to me through His word, through His children.... or I could hide myself away and hope for the best. I think with my mouth I spoke belief but in my heart, and in my head I felt like I was hanging over a cliff edge, holding on for dear life, hoping hoping hoping.....
Just before this event, I came upon a scripture that gave me great peace in this circumstance.
2 Tim 2 v 13: If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself. Amplified
God knows that it is difficult for us to just jump over the edge in faith. He wants us to keep trying, but He understands that it is difficult. All I can say to this is that I am extremely humbled by the fact that God holds open His arms to me despite my lack of faith. In my circumstance, God did exactly as He said He would in His word. I am still doing spiritual cartwheels in amazement and great joy. Solely because my God is great and He is faithful and He does as He says He will do (Numbers 23v19: God is not a man that He should lie, not a son of man that He should change His mind. Does He speak and not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?).
My encouragement to you is to believe God's word for you. He can be trusted! He will do as He says He will do. Just remember to do what He wants you to do, and that is to love Him, praise Him and TRUST Him.
