God made a promise to Abraham.
God was faithful to that promise even in instructing Abraham to kill Isaac.
God was faithful to that promise even when Israel decided to have a human king.
God was faithful to that promise even when Israel went into exile.
God was faithful to that promise even when the Gentiles were included in it.
Jesus was the fulfillment of the promise to Abraham.
“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?“
So, in the same way…
God is faithful to His promises even when His commands don’t make sense to us.
God is faithful to His promises even when we are disobedient.
God is faithful to His promises even when we are without hope.
God is faithful to His promises even when His plans don’t match ours.
The good news is this…
God is faithful.
It just takes some time, little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride.
Anonymous asked: Hi, blake. Tonight I'm feeling rather down and out and quite depressed. If you could pray that these feelings don't dictate how I act and what I do to myself tonight, that would be great. Thank you.
Absolutely friend! I am praying for peace and joy to fill you right now. Love you and please let me know if I can do anything for you!
Hi, how is everyone? I’d love to hear from you. So feel free to drop me something in my ask! Whether it’s a life update, prayer request, or just conversation, hit me up!
I’m with my white friend and my white pastor as he preaches at a predominantly black church. It’s going to be an awesome night at “Miracle Temple House of the True Living God”.
No reformer can climb into Heaven through his intellect. No mystic can climb into Heaven through his loftiest, transcendent experiences. Heaven came down, and we believe in His love.
