Remember who your God is!
September 30, 2009
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength.
When the children of Israel were in bondage in Babylonia, they were very discouraged. Everything seemed hopeless to them. They wondered if God had forgotten them. Perhaps he was no longer able to do all that he had done before for them.
But God sent them Isaiah to remind them the truth about their God. And he spoke the promise that is today's verse. He was saying, "Remember all that you have known and heard about God. The Lord is the everlasting God! He hasn't changed. He is the same. He's going to help us."
There are times when you and I need to be reminded of this, too, especially when we fall upon difficult times. We need to remember what is right and true about God. The Lord is an unchanging and everlasting God.
Don't go one more day without claiming this promise as your own!
Trust in your everlasting God and he will renew your hope and strength. He is always and forever abundantly available to you when you call upon him, when you trust in him, and when you wait on him.
TRUST IN YOUR EVERLASTING GOD AND HE WILL RENEW YOUR HOPE AND STRENGTH.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
