"I will establish My covenant
between Me and you
and your descendants after you
throughout their generations
for an everlasting covenant,
to be God to you
and to your descendants after you."
If you are a child of God,
you already know by experience that the lovingkindness of the Lord Jesus is everlasting.
In fact, His lovingkindness is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 18:8).
'I will never desert you,
nor will I ever forsake you"
The Lord Jesus is everything you need. Seriously consider His encouragement:
"Be strong and courageous,
do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God
is the one who goes with you.
He will not fail you
or forsake you"
God's everlasting covenantal relationship is an intimate friendship that has no end.
It is a marriage betrothal
in which the Lord Jesus ministers
to His church
for whom He died.
It is the stabilizer your soul needs, because it gives you confident assurance,
knowing His presence
and power are with you all the time.
Open your Bible to Romans 8:28
God has ordained everything that happens in your life. And why has he done that?
The answer is:
For your good
and for His glory.
You may not think there is any "good"
or and "glory" in your situation,
but God says otherwise.
Reassure yourself that God's ways
are higher than your ways.
He is not obligated to explain His ways to you or to me. His ways are perfect and for the most part are passed finding out. Isn't this what trust is all about? We do not walk by sight but by faith.
He is near to you.
He is at hand.
He is your refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble
He is your personal, all powerful,
Thank Him for His great mercy
in making you conscious of your helplessness.
He is just as truly your Helper
when He is chastening you,
as when He is delivering you from trouble.
Trust Him today.
He is not far away.
Trust Him today!
