Persistence-Friday Freedom

I have been young, and now am old,

    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
    or his children begging for bread.
He is ever lending generously,
    and his children become a blessing
Psalm 37:25-26

I sat down at my desk to type this post and the Spirit got a hold of me. I started thinking about the past year and all that God has brought me through. There were some periods of happiness, but those were coupled with periods of misery and pain. Like many of you I've experienced some things that would make the average person give up in life and on God. But...

God is faithful!

He is more faithful to me than I am to myself. He is truly a God of hope and restoration. He is a faithful God. Looking back on his life King David was able to say the same thing. David never saw any of God's children forsaken. Why? Because God is faithful. Look back over your walk with Jesus Christ. Has He been faithful? Of course He has! Even when we want to give up on ourselves and on Him, He never gives up on us. Not only did David say that God never forsakes the righteous, but they are never lacking AND they have enough to be a blessing to others. God is faithful!

Whatever you are facing know that God can handle it. He always has been faithful and always will be. When you are down believe that God has the strength to build you back up. Jesus is faithful!!!

"Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God
I'm reaping the harvest God promised me
Take back what the devil stole from me
And I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all
Yes, I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all"
