We are all accustomed to promises. We are also accustomed to seeing them made and broken. Anyone who has lived for a number of years would certainly never lay claim to having kept every promise made. There are many reasons why this is true. Sometimes we forget, sometimes we are negligent, and sometimes it may be due to circumstances beyond our control. Oh! Maybe you’re wondering what I’m talking about. Okay, I was quite enticed to make a blog about our topic for this week’s devotion. It’s all about God’s promise. I hope you will understand this scribbles of mine and let you know what I really want to point out, explicitly. Many of us are complaining about the things we usually don’t get. Maybe you prayed for a love one, but they didn’t get well. Or maybe you worked hard for a promotion, but you didn’t get it. You stood in faith for a relationship, but it didn’t work out. This is just some examples on how people struggle on challenges and then stopped clinging from God. Not realizing that every blessing/promise has attached rules to abide. Back in the days, yes I’ve known God but not yet fully accepted Him in my life. My most recent quiet time revealed an occurrence of how I avoided, hid, ignored, and set aside my devotion to God. Until one time He made a way for me to be back in His arms again. I’ve always said that God is my security, that He helps me, guides, and assures that I am strong. This is due to the sad reality that I am indeed not strong enough without His wings to carry me through. I used to think that despite living a new life with God for years, I have not moved on from learning more about His abilities. Everything is promised by God to be given to us but many people are just inconsiderate and fickle minded in terms of experiencing trials. I have come to realize that God comes in so many forms and is there for people in specific ways. Looks like for me, He is the high steed, my best friend that I can count on. He is the body guard, the lamp to guide my feet. And I am insecure no longer about my progress. Trials, obstacles, problems. They are always there. For me I have encountered problems with friends, my guy, myself, and even my family. Just like any other human, I made the mistake of trusting myself. And through each failure, I withdrew myself from consulting God because I was afraid to face Him with my flawed face. Just let God control of everything. All things are going to work together for our own good. God has promised everything and he can lead you forward to his path of blessing.
