180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 165

No matter what storm clouds may rock this ship of mine,
The light of my Savior leads me safely through the night.
Though my ship may be rocky and my sails may be torn,
I shall rest in the eye of the storm.

My ship is being rocked but I will rest in the eye of the storm.

This was sung yesterday at church and it resonated with me.

I believe that Jesus will guide me through the night.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 165

When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:1

My heart feels overwhelmed but I am thankful. I am thankful that though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, Daddy is with me so I will fear no evil.

I am thankful that his rod and staff are around me to guide and protect. He anoints my head with oil to prevent spiritual pests from harming me.

My heart is overwhelmed but I rejoice because he prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies. He will bless and make a space for me where others think I don’t deserve to be.

He is my Rock. He’s a sure and stable source in whom I put my trust. He’s a sturdy defence. Daddy is my hiding place. I may feel overwhelmed but I know that I can turn to Daddy for deliverance and protection.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 165

We can’t escape God’s Word

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what.
Hebrews 4:12‭-‬13 MSG

“A promise is a comfort to a fool”, says the worldview. However, we see God making promises to us regarding eternal life, and earthly life. Are we fools? Is God up to no good?

Nope. His word will stand forever. His promises are true. Joshua 21:45 says that every good thing that God promised came to pass, not one failed.

Heb 4:3-7 references Gen 1 which speaks of God resting on the 7th day because he had completed his work.

Basically, from the 7th day of creation, God had already finished his design for my life. By the 7th day of creation, the promises he made to me during the course of my life now, were already packaged and placed one side with my name on it.

Heb 4:13 tells me that, no matter what, I can’t get away from God’s word. In essence, once I remain steadfast and live by faith, I will never miss/lose one promise made to me.

Prayer: I will continue to have faith in God and the promises he made to me. God’s words will never return to him void, but they shall accomplish his will in my life. Your promise still stand, great is your faithfulness.
