Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9
Too often Christians think that being children of God makes them immune to the attacks of the devil or that the storms of life would just bypass them. Exactly the opposite is true. I have seen those who turn their backs on God and walk out of the church because God didn't stop the storm from coming against them.
Surely the storms of life will come. They will often come when you least expect them. That makes them a better test of your faith. We would all like it if the troubles that we will face were known before they happened so that we could plan better, but that's not faith.
God wants to see how you will react in the times of trouble. Will you react in faith and trust, or doubt and fear? When the enemy comes in like a flood against you, where will you turn to? The reality of our walk with the Lord is that He never abandons us even when we feel abandoned.
The God on the mountain is still God in the valley. When things go wrong, He will make them right. The God of the good times is still God in the bad times. The God of the day is still God in the night.
Thank God, He's still God - and nothing is too hard for Him! Thank God for His faithfulness! Thank God for His promise to never leave us! Thank God for His power to heal, to bless, to forgive and to wash us from all sin! Thank God for supplying our every need! Thank God for His love, His mercy and goodness.
Prayer: I thank You Lord, that in all situations You remain faithful.
