3/365- Our fortress, Our GREAT God

The verse I would like to focus on today is Deuteronomy 31:6:

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you

Who can you name, it can be a friend or even a family member, who you know will NEVER leave or forsake you?

Can you name even one person?

In all honesty I can’t.  There was a point in my life that I judged a friend of mine and didn’t expect consequences, well there were consequences and people who I thought would always stay by my side left me with the blink of an eye.  [I like that phrase don’t I?]  It was then that I realized how GREAT our God is, he will NEVER leave or forsake us!  Even when we feel most alone.

Something I’ve always struggled with is trusting in our God.  I remember when I was younger a youth pastor told a group of children of his experiences fighting and serving for God.  One story he had told us involved a demon and I was scared from the mention of it until later that night.  At night I tried to sleep but was completely petrified- that was until I remembered how great my God is.

This verse speaks to me because it reminds me that we serve a GREAT God, who does not forsake us.  Sometimes I do not understand his ways, but that is when I need to trust him the most.

So far I have only made 3 posts [including this one], and feel tempted to stop. I feel like no one is reading but does that really matter?  If anyone out there is reading I want you to the know the truth.  God would never put you into a situation, unless he knew he could bring you through it and truly NOTHING is impossible for our God.

I know that sometimes your situation may seem to hard to handle, maybe you feel like it is overwhelming, but I encourage you to not look at this size of your problem, but the size of your GOD!

I’m thinking of posting pictures on this blog, but don’t have a good camera, do you guys [if anyone is there?] have any recommendations?

See you tomorrow [I’ll write more tomorrow!],
