God Never Fails

Joshua 1:9 says, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Do you believe this? Do I believe this? Whether we do or not, it’s true. We have no reason to be afraid or dismayed.

When I keep my granddaughter, Adali, she delights in that fact that I am just with her. She’s glad to see me, and she totally trusts that I will take care of her. I love the fact that she knows I love her and would only act for good on her behalf if at all possible.

But, alas, though I don’t even want to do so, I will fail her somewhere. But God will never fail her. He will be with her wherever she goes, and He will be with you and me. Let’s hand Him our fears and our disappointment today. He is for us, and He is with us wherever we go! Thank Him for His promise all day today!

And there you go!
 

It is Well with my Soul...Seriously!

Lamentations 3:22-23 says, The Lord’s loving kindnesses, indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Oh, bless the name of The Lord. His faithfulness and loving kindnesses (more than one) never, ever cease. When I awake each morning, His mercies are new.

When sadness overtakes me, darkness seems to be my lot, and I think things can’t get worse, this verse reminds me that if I wake up on earth or in heaven, His mercies are new, and He will not —cannot — forget to be faithful. For He is God!

Tho Satan should buffet,
Tho trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And has shed His own blood for my soul.

That’s why it’s well with my soul. Because His mercies and loving kindnesses will never fail me. Every morning I’m covered by his blood, and He has a plan for my life each day.  And there you go!
