This morning as I was doing a little of my Bible study I was taken to Romans 11. This is what I read:
"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out! Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor? Who has ever given to God, that God should repay Him? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen." (vv. 33-36)
This was so great for me to read. I am amazed at how often I need the reminder that His plans are not mine and His ways are not mine. He is the wisest of all Counselors. How often, in my sin, do I try to handle things or go to others before running to Him? I can trust Him. He is faithful.
As we were singing in church this morning we sang a song that we had done several times over the last few weeks. It is called, You Are For Me by Kari Jobe. The verses talk about how He is faithful, constant, loving, true, powerful, and how He fills us and knows us. The chorus says,
"I know that You are for me. I know that You are for me. I know that You will never forsake me in my weakness and I know that you have come now even if to write upon my heart, to remind me who You are."
This just reminded me of what I read this morning. He is constant. He truly is for me and only wants me to have His best. He will not forsake His children. He is trustworthy and I must trust Him!
Thank You for being constant Father. Thank You for the promise that You will never leave me. Thank You for offering me Your best!
