EVER LOVING, PRESENT AND FAITHFUL
Recently, I have encountered a lie that is expressed in rather subtle ways within Christian tradition. It comes in many forms and variations, but the sentiment is the same:
“Maybe God will…(show up, provide, heal, answer my prayer….) if He takes a notion to; if He feels like it; if He wants to.”
The truth is,
God is always present and attentive to us.
He is our Refuge; He holds us in His everlasting arms and defends us. (Deuteronomy 33:27)
He is the Friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)
He comforts us, as a mother comforts her child. (Isaiah 66:13)
He is with us forever. (John 14:16)
He provides us with every blessing in abundance…
Since we always have enough of everything, we share abundantly in every good work. (2 Cor. 9:8
He supplies all our needs, according to His riches in Glory. (Philippians 4:19)
He never leaves or forsakes us. (Hebrews 13:5)
He has healed us. (1 Peter 2:24)
Thank You, most loving, faithful and ever present Papa! Amen.
