This picture popped up on my FB feed today from January 7, 2016. With it was this caption…
Brooke wanted to walk around the house holding my hand. She would let go and start fussing because I wasn’t holding her hand. She let go of me, I didn’t let go of her.
This reminds me of how we as Christians fuss when God isn’t close to us and taking care of us when in all reality, we let go of God’s hand. The Bible says that He will never leave us, nor forsake us. But we as Christians leave and forsake God and then blame Him for leaving us all alone. It’s a simple lesson with a profound truth…He’s not going to leave you, so don’t leave Him.
Did you used to walk with God?
Have you let go of God’s hand?
Do you feel all alone, left by God?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, reevaluate your walk with God. Are you daily walking with Him? Are spending time each day fellowshipping with Him?
He wants to spend time with you. The Lord went looking for Adam and Eve in the garden and they had hid themselves. It is not God who lets us walk alone, it is us who lets God walk alone!
Start walking with God everyday and you will experience the greatest relationship that you can ever have!
I saw this quote last week and it has just stuck with me! It is so simple yet so deep!
“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Amos 3:3 KJV
Many times we choose to walk with our friends because they agree with us. They aren’t or won’t tell us when we are doing wrong. They won’t strive to make us better…they are agreeing with us!
When we choose to walk with God, we may not agree with those around us. But when we choose to walk with God. He will make us a better Christian, a better servant for him.
When you walk with God, you will find friends who are also walking with God, and in my opinion those are the friends you want in your life. Friends that will make you better, push you to being a better Christian!
Who are you walking with today??
“If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.”2 Timothy 2:13 KJV I was reading through 2 Timothy and this verse stuck out to me. Actually the first part of this verse was what caught my attention…”If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful….” I love this phrase because it shows that everything God is, isn’t dependent on our belief. Whether we believe or not, He abideth faithful!Whether we believe or not, He still is the Saviour of mankind. You can think of all the people that have denied and rejected Christ, that hasn’t changed who He is. There have been millions upon millions of people who have criticized and cut down the person of Christ but that hasn’t changed who He is! If Christ and the salvation He provides is dependent on every person believing, than we wouldn’t have a chance. If we believe not, He is still the Saviour of man!!Another thing I thought of is that whether we believe or not, He still is the Good Shepherd! I’m so glad that the atheists haven’t stopped my God from being faithful in caring for me! I’m so glad the those who serve false gods haven’t stopped my God from taking care of me. He is there when I need Him! He will never leave me nor forsake me because He is the Good Shepherd who cares for His own, whether we believe or not!A lot of people, including Christians, go through life not believing that God will supply their need. It is evident in this day and age when many fall into debt trying to pay for everything they want instead of relying on God for their needs. I’m glad the lack of belief in God supplying our needs hasn’t stopped Him. If that was the case, He would have stopped supplying our needs a long time ago! Paul finishes the verse by saying, “…he cannot deny himself.” This made me excited! God cannot deny that He is God! We sometimes lack faith in ourselves, maybe lack belief in ourselves, but God never does lacks belief in what He can do!You see, yours and mine belief or unbelief in God and what He can do, doesn’t change who He is or what He can do. God isn’t relying on us to be God, He will always be faithful in doing His part! We have to do our part and that is to believe!I apologize for the long run on paragraph. I’m out at camp with very little reception and making do with what I have! Thanks for reading!!
