Promises to provision… the topic of discussion between my husband and I over the last month. Deep, very deep topic of discussion. Over the last 2 years, my faith and trust in God has been steadfast. My husband didn’t understand how I could keep such faith and trust in God during this season of trial. But in the trenches, he observed and learned about the true faithfulness of God; IN ALL THINGS.
What are you doing to understand the purpose of the birth of Jesus? We are reading through about 4 different Advent devotions and December bible reading challenge as a family. I think the dots are connecting regarding the promises of Old Testament to provide a Savior to reestablish a relationship with God towards the ultimate fulfillment of the New World in the second coming. God promised from the beginning that a Savior would come to rebuild the relationship He lost with us because of the sin in the garden. In the month of December we recognize and celebrate the birth of Jesus. I know it is not the true date of birth of Jesus and many will connect it to paganism and such…. But we celebrate Jesus. Anyway……
God is so FAITHFUL.
He has been faithful from day one of creation. His faithfulness never ends.
My husband told me the other night that he firmly believes that our blessings in the last couple months is the ultimate fulfillment of the promises God has spoken to me during these last 2 years BECAUSE of my faithfulness to believing and standing firm in my trust in God. That is okay for him to have this perspective.
My perspective is ~
I didn’t know when His fulfillment would take place, I only knew He would fulfill His promises and trusted in His timing of doing so. My timing is not His. I want things to occur NOW or the trial not to happen at all; but He knows in order for me to grow in my relationship with Him, He cannot stop the issues or provide what I ask for right away.
The most important thing is my growth ~
I can only pray that my husband’s baby christian perspective continues to grow; just as I also pray that my lil buddy, C, continues to grow from his baby christian self.
Are you growing from a baby christian? It’s a process. God appreciates the humbleness of looking to Him and trusting in Him. It’s worth it.
Psalms 89:8 O Lord God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1 Corinthians 2:5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
