About God...About Ourselves

Updated: Apr 7


God exhorts Christians to live by faith. It sounds easy and kind of clichéish to most people. But in reality living by faith requires more than just thinking. It requires holding on to and acting on, what God says no matter what. This can seem strange to other people, even to other Christians. Those who look at us as weird will also include family members and close friends. Even Jesus’ own family considered Him crazy.

In order to remain focused on God’s will a Christian must remain focused on who God is and what He says. Below are some of the things God has revealed to men throughout the years that it would do well for Christians to remember. There is also a list of things we will need to remember about ourselves.

THINGS TO REMEMBER… ABOUT GOD

“Thus says the Lord, ‘In a favorable time I have answered You, and in a day of salvation I have helped You; and I will keep You and give You for a covenant of the people, to restore the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages;” Isaiah 49:8

He will answer in a favorable time

He brings salvation and help

He will keep

He will restore

He turns the bad into good

“Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.” Isaiah 49:16

He does not forget

He does not forsake

“Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel, ‘My way is hidden from the Lord, and the justice due me escapes the notice of my God’? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.” Isaiah 40:27-28

He is attentive to our lives

He notices our needs

He never is tired

He understands everything

“He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives strength

He gives power

He gives endurance

THINGS TO REMEMBER… ABOUT OURSELVES

“Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed. Make me know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day.” Psalm 25:3-5

God will not shame us

God teaches us truth

God guides us

If we wait on the Lord.

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

We will be strengthened

We will have courage

If we wait on the Lord.

“I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.” Psalm 40:1

We will be heard

We will receive a response to our call

If we wait on the Lord.

“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6

We will please God

We will be rewarded

We must WAIT ON THE LORD

God will answer His children at a favorable time. His children must learn to wait, pray, and trust for that time.




Because Jesus loves us,
