I have heard some say, ‘miracles were for then. God used to do miracles but not now.’ What a terrible comment to come from a christian! Can you imagine if this were true? That would mean that the God we have all put trust in is a changing God. Our hope in God is based on the fact that He is unchanging. I believe that He has promised eternal rest (heaven) to me. Now if God was changing, when my time on earth is done, I might appear before Him only to find out that on that day, He had changed His mind about me entering heaven!!!!
But praise God, He is unchanging! We can bank on His Word and ALL of His Word. Malachi 3:6
This is why I believe that He performed miracles in days past and He still works miracles today. ‘Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.’ Hebrews 13:8
Here we find ourselves enjoying spring like we have not done before. We are enjoying the spacious home God has given us to live in; its beautiful landscape with divers flowers blooming in their appointed seasons. It’s pretty here! The children are enjoying riding bicycles, playing ball and running around on this 3.5 acres of land. We have not had that much space before. The deck is long and wide. The home spacious enough for large company. The garden is taken care of and is beautiful. There is a lady that is hired to care for the flowers and weed etc. Today we went out for most of the day while another lady came to do a monthly deep clean. We are starting to think of how to clean up the swimming pool and use it in coming days. On sunny days, we have recently began to enjoy fruit smoothies using vitaMix (appliances that I couldn’t buy for myself before- but was left in house for our use along with many other high end appliance). My favorite way to relax lately is putting up my feet in the lazy chair-like couch and sipping tea. My greatest delight is working with my husband all day long and having him around the children all the time.
Are we dreaming? Is this really happening? Tears just tread down my face as I think, ‘who are we Lord that you are so mindful of us? and what is our family that you have brought us this far? Psalm 8:4, 2 Samuel 7:18
Is it possible to thank Him enough for this?
Remember what I said? God is unchanging and His Word is true. Please don’t read and dismay saying, ‘that is just for you, you have faith. That can’t be for me.
God’s Word also tells us that He ‘is no respecter of persons.’ Acts 10:34
I read today ‘if you then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?’ Mathew 7:11
Please note ‘good things’. Often we expect God to give left over, second hand etc. But the scripture states ‘good things’. The question is: what are good things to you?
When God asked us last summer what we wanted in the next home we were to live in. We painted (literally) a picture that didn’t make sense to the mind and our circumstance. But trusted His Word that gold and silver are His. The things we drew on that picture He has provided and surpassed our asking and imagination according unto His Word.(Ephesians 3:20)
So, we write to encourage you, our brother, our sister. Can you stop putting limitation on God?
We know little about our God, there is much we don’t know but want to learn. We are encouraging you as we are encouraging ourselves. Let’s believe God. Let’s believe all of His Word. Do I know what that looks like? No. Am I afraid to find out? No. I remember where God took me from. That helpless, hopeless, suicidal state I was in. He has loved me all the way and still does. I can find no evil, not even one to say about Him. I know and I know He loves me and desires to do me good. So how can I fear to trust in him?
How can you fear to trust Him? This Jesus (the Word) that we all love.
In Christ love,
