Thankful for Perfect Promises

Within each of us, just waiting to bloom, is the wonderful promise of all we can be.

 

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to Him for protection. – (Psalm 18:30, NLT)

 

Today, as we gather and give thanks, among a plethora of praises, I am thankful for God’s perfection, His faithfulness to His promises, and His ongoing protection. We never “arrive”, yet we are transformed more and more into His likeness as we invest time in our relationship with Him. What He promises, He is faithful to fulfill, despite our frustration with His timing, rather than our own. Additionally, His protection is present in both tangible ways – of which we are well aware, and those times that we cannot even fathom what He is doing on our behalf. Christ is ever present, and always loving. All that He does is for our ultimate good. That which He allows us to walk through may at times be rough, but His presence remains and when we choose to remain in Him, we always come out the other side, changed and stronger in Him.

 

Let us be planted,When My Soul Waits

deep down in Your soil;

where we may take root,

at rest and in toil.

Hope of Your promise,

Trust in what is true;

Perfect protection,

All thanks unto You.

Keep growing us Lord,

So we may break through;

Bud, bloom and become,

All You want us to.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your way is perfect and that Your promises are true. Thank You that You are our shield of protection. Forgive us for not believing what You have promised because we cannot see evidence of forward momentum. Teach us to trust You and Your promises, no matter what we see, as You are faithful and Your promises are always yes and amen. Lead us to love others in a way that demonstrates our gratitude for who You have made them to be. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be exalted O God, as we trust in Your perfect promises and protection, and continue to give You thanks in all things.  Amen.

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. – Job 8:21
