Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing Jehovah-Jireh…

In God we Trust…

Shalom!

“The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is purest truth, like silver seven times refined.” (Psalm 12:6, The Living Bible)

I am sure you’ve heard the story about the man who fell off a cliff and on the way down he managed to reach out and grab a small tree growing out of the side of the mountain. Immediately he began calling for help. After several hours of getting no response and with his grip beginning to slip he finally asked God for help. From what sounded like the top of the cliff he heard a voice call out, “I come in answer to your pray are you okay? I am here to save you.” Instantly the man found a little more strength and replied, “I am okay but I am starting lose my grip, please hurry and save me. Who are you?” Again the voice called out, “I am God, all you need to do is trust me to save you and let go I will send an angel to catch you.” After several minutes, “God, can you go find someone with a rope?”

Trusting God is one of the most difficult and challenging part of building a solid relationship with him. No matter how many times God has proven himself when we find ourselves hanging on precariously for dear life the thought of trusting God with the outcome ignites a conflagration of fire storms that begin burning away our faith. Yet at the same time as our faith burns away the Holy Spirit replaces it with the Faith of Jesus and then we can find sufficient Faith to believe in the Promises of God and let go.

“Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his wisdom and knowledge and riches! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods! For who among us can know the mind of the Lord? Who knows enough to be his counselor and guide? And who could ever offer to the Lord enough to induce him to act? For everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for his glory. To him be glory evermore.” (Romans 11:33–36, The Living Bible)

“May the Lord of peace himself give you his peace no matter what happens. The Lord be with you all.”**

Grace and PEACE,

Gary

    Yes trusting God while living in the ruins of Eden is hard. Holding the sovereignty of God in one hand with the suffering in the other is hard, but God remains immutable. I stumbled upon 1Peter 4:19 this week ( or perhaps it was place in my path) and I love that it acknowledges suffering but does not waver from trust in the Creator and admonishes to continue to do good. Thanks
