God is Good

Matthew 6:31-32 ESV
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Matthew 7:11 ESV
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Matthew 11:29-30 ESV
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

This is my (our) great God who boldly declares, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." (Luke 21:33 ESV)

What then, shall I fear? Life is full of uncertainty. Promises made by humans are easily broken. Feelings rise and disappear as the ocean's wave, come and go as it wishes. 

Only God is faithful and able to fulfil His promises without second chances. When God says He'll build His kingdom on earth and every name shall bow, He'll definitely see it through. When God says there is no other name than His, He knows it is the truth. 

Recently I've simply been so amazed at God's faithfulness to me and it's incredibly touching to see how He works in the lives of people who sincerely seek after Him. God is good. God is really, really good.

When I'm lonely, He gives me genuine friends. When I'm in doubts, He shows me the right mindset to possess upon my choices. When I fear, He sends people to encourage me. When I need money, He sends business deals. When I'm sick, and well, I don't get sick easily, He blesses me with family who readily takes care of me.

God provides. And God talks. I feel very much blessed by His protection and I know He'll direct my path whenever uncertainty arises. I am not in want, because He fills me. 

Have you ever felt the amazing peace that only God can give? If no, simply pray this prayer "Jesus, I am desperate and I don't know any way out. Help me. Soothe my heart and do Your miracles. Fill me with Your peace. I believe in Your power. Amen"

What you ask you will receive. Jesus doesn't withhold His peace. God bless you.
