Can I be honest for a moment? There are moments I deeply struggle to trust the Lord and keep the faith. Though Jesus has been faithful and unfailing in His love, the old me still screams into every situation that I can’t trust Him. So even though I realize only God can do what I’m powerless to do, I turn everywhere else first before confessing only He can.
Today what I believe Scripture teaches is God wants us to honestly and humbly come to Him. Bring every doubt, every fear, every frustration, every crisis, every failure and seek His healing and restoration. Come to Him weary and burdened, but don’t stay that way (Matthew 11:28). When we come we will find true rest, mercy and grace to help in every time of need.
As the sun sets on another day, I know nights can be hard and lonley. I can remember night after night as a 15 year old praying the same prayer: God please don’t abandon me like my dad did. Years before I surrendered my life to God I struggled with an important truth: God my Father in heaven has a perfect, unfailing, faithful love for me.
Tonight maybe someone you love has abandoned you. Maybe someone made a promise and broke it and your heart in the process. No matter who has failed you, left you, or abandoned you, God never will. In fact, nothing and no one in all creation will ever separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:38-39).
