1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
For me to sit and write this weeks article is almost overwhelming! I’ve seen so many of God’s promises come to fulfillment in our lives that it’s very hard to pick just one. God is so good!
A few years ago we stepped out at the Lord’s instruction and renovated and enlarged the church. We are now in our new sanctuary and our fellowship hall is complete as well. We’ve added classrooms for the children and a new bookstore. While we are not completely through, we are closer than ever! We are ready to move forward and grow! Our best days are yet ahead of us!
Some would say it’s not about buildings and land. I couldn’t agree more! What it is about is God’s faithfulness! What I have learned is that God does just as he’s promised! God is faithful! We have faced the greatest odds of our lives to get to the point we are at today. God has been faithful every step of the way! Over and over again it looked like there was no way, but God promised that he would make a way. Every time we’ve faced great obstacles, we’ve simply trusted God and watched him do as promised! The word faithful in our passage above means “trustworthy, sure, or can be relied upon.” I’m here today to tell you that God is all of those things!
You may not be building a church today, but the promises of God will work for you just like they’ve worked for us! No obstacle is too great for God. Do not look at your mountain today, but keep your eyes on the mountain mover. You will face seemingly impassable odds every time you step out and trust God, but he will see you through every single time!
God is faithful!
