Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23


We know that God speaks to us through His word.  But have you ever heard that 'still small voice' nudging you when you begin to doubt?  Let me assure you, it just takes a little of that doubt to settle in and soon the mind becomes  paralyzed by fear.


 I was privileged to hear a Ladies Day speaker a few weeks ago who challenged me in my weakness. "I want to leave you with two words today, "Trust Me."  She reminded us of what God had already said, but my own thoughts drowned out.  I shared a few of her thoughts with my husband, but left this one out. Maybe I was feeling guilty over my lack of trust and faith.  I don't know.  But Sunday evening I heard him say, "God is telling us, 'Trust Me.'"   It made me squirm!  I knew I was being reminded that I was wavering and needed this reminder!  Again, the next day, someone or something reminded me of these two words.  Believe me, after hearing it three times in three days, I became very contrite and humbled over my lack of belief and trust.  


There was just no getting around it.  I was not really believing God was going to keep His promise, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." (From Hebrews 13:5) When the going gets tough, sometimes I just want to run and hide.  But that isn't an option.  We either need to prepare for the battle that we see coming and remember that God's grace is sufficient for the day, or we will fail miserably in our Christian walk.  


I'd like to leave you with these words in closing, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen."  Ephesians 3:20-21  We don't need to fear, because He has promised and He, unlike our earthly friends, family or neighbors, will always keep His promises.
