My study this morning, 2 separate books (Oswald Chambers’ book and the Holy Bible) had a common theme. I always find it interesting that God brings to my attention something, in three completely separate passages. After reading the devotion from Chambers, it brought to mind the verse in Psalm, and then I continued into my Bible and reading Isaiah chapter 7.
“There is only one Being Who can satisfy the last aching abyss of human heart, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. Why our Lord is apparently so severe regarding every human relationship is because He knows that every relationship not based on loyalty to Himself will end in disaster…If our trust is placed in human beings, we shall end in despairing everyone.” – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, July 30.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humanity.
If you do not stand firm in your faith,
then you will not stand at all.
What can God not do? We know He can do everything and anything. He doesn’t always do it on our desired time frame. We have to believe God–Father, Son, Holy Spirit. We have to TRUST God. Believe He has a plan, know it is the best plan, with perfect timing.
Don’t think it will be rainbows, roses, and unicorn farts. It will be hard. There will be suffering. Trust God, have faith.
