Thank you BGO for your blog and the invitation to share. I want to share with everyone, that no matter what your situations look like, know that the LORD is FAITHFUL. He truly has our best interests in mind in EVERY trial He allows. Those of us who have put aside our idols and are living for Jesus have chosen a FIRM FOUNDATION and He will NOT FAIL TO DELIVER ON HIS PROMISES.I am seeing and hearing on a regular basis the tremendous things that God does in people's lives OVER TIME as they WAIT FOR HIM. He has no favourites ... so if He is doing this for some of His children, He will do it for ALL of them.... just ask Him to help you not to move from your position of TRUSTING and WAITING. This goes for everything... family and friends' salvation, job troubles, financial needs, physical challenges, waiting for a mate or a family... we all need to be still and watch God work faithfully over time because He WILL. At the very least, He will quiet our hearts with the confidence that the way He is ordering our steps and answering our prayers is for the best. His wisdom is TRULY at work in EACH of our lives. I heard in a sermon once that when our lives are over, we will see that God crafted a perfect mosaic of all our circumstances and experiences that will show just how wise and faithful He really was and is. Nothing is wasted ... and EVERYTHING is used for a good and glorious purpose. Amen!Isaiah 46:3-11, NIV (emphasis in CAPS is mine)3 Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel,you whom I have upheld since you were conceived,and have carried since your birth.4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you.I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.5 To whom will you compare me or count me equal?To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?6 Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales;they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god,and they bow down and worship it.7 They lift it to their shoulders and carry it;they set it up in its place, and there it stands.From that spot it cannot move.Though one cries out to it, it does not answer;it cannot save him from his troubles.8 REMEMBER THIS, FIX IT IN MIND, take it to heart, you rebels.9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;I AM GOD, and there is no other;I AM GOD, and there is none like me.10 I MAKE KNOWN THE END FROM THE BEGINNING,FROM ANCIENT TIMES, WHAT IS STILL TO COMEI SAY: MY PURPOSE WILL STAND,and I will do ALL that I please.11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.What I have said, that will I bring about;what I have planned, that will I do."Help us, Lord, to BELIEVE in YOU! Not just for what we want from You, but in YOU. Your love for us is beyond measure and You are wise beyond our understanding ... so help us to let go and BELIEVE!Thanks BGO!
