So let’s imagine, you’re on your way to work. You’re about to be promoted to the top executive and you have one last interview to be to before you get the promotion. Well, the baby kept you up all night. The car wouldn’t start like usual. And traffic set you back 15 minutes. On top of that, the parking garage was shut down for maintenance so you had to park at another garage 8 blocks away. Now you’re rushing to be there before you’re late. You’re last hope is that the elevator isn’t crowded so you can make it to the 10th floor before your boss starts looking at his watch.
Well,…let’s add O-N-E, tiny, little thing to your day so far. The elevator is temporarily out of service. … Great. Now you’re headed for the stairs. =/ [Ok, one more thing. You haven’t had any coffee yet and it’s not even 9am yet. =)]
Rough day, huh?!
I have heard people say, “I just find it hard to have faith in God,” not realizing the implications of their words. These are the same people who often accept the daily weather forecast (and that’s been WRONG…how many times??? >=/ ), they believe the newspapers and trust their lives to a pilot they have never seen whenever they board a plane. We exercise faith every day. We rely on the car’s brakes. We trust history books, medical journals, and elevators. Yet elevators can let us down. (Figuratively and literally). History books can be wrong, because honestly, there’s a lot of history I was never around to see for myself. Yet, lots of people still believe the textbooks, stories or professors. And planes can crash. How much MORE then should we trust the SURE & TRUE promises of Almighty God?? He will NEVER let us down. We just need to trust Him.
Some critics argue, “Yeah, you can’t trust the Bible–it’s full of mistakes.” It is. The first mistake was when man rejected God, and the Scriptures show men and women making the same tragic mistake again and Again and AGAIN. It’s also full of what “seem to be” contradictions. For example, the Bible says, “with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37); there is nothing God cannot do. Yet we are also told in Hebrews 6:18 that is it “impossible for God to lie”. So there IS something God cannot do! Isn’t that a contradiciton?? A mistake in the Bible?? No, it isn’t.
Lying, deception, bearing false witness, etc., is so repulsive to God, so disgusting to Him, so against His holiness that the Scriptures draw strength from the word “impossible” to substantiate the claim. He cannot,…Could not,…and WILL not lie.
That means that in a world where we are continually let down, not to even mention by other people, “Friends” and family and co-workers who suddenly can’t work your shift so you can be off when they originally said they could,..we can totally rely on, trust in, and count on His promises. They are sure,…certain,…indisputable,…true,…trustworthy,…reliable,…faithful,…unfailing,…dependable,….steadfast,…and an anchor for the soul. In other words, you can truly believe them and because of that, you can throw yourself blindfolded and without reserve, into His mighty hands. He will NEVER, EVER let you down. “^_^*
To the KING!!
