A GOD FOR ALL SEASONS

There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee Do not begin to be anxious - And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of - Amen
Proverbs 18:24b, NIV, Heb 13:5KJV, Phil. 4:6, PBV, Matt 28:20KJV, Gen 28:15KJV

It is always weakness to be fretting and worrying, questioning and mistrusting. Can we gain anything by it? Do we not unfit ourselves for action, and unhinge our minds for wise decision? We are sinking by our struggles when we might float by faith.

Know this as well, that life on earth has been set up in such a way that we have been involuntarily subjected to futility. This is so that we will not fix our hearts on things that going to eventually perish and be burned up. In fact if we make things our "god", we can rest assure they will utterly fail us. And if we we're leaning on them for support instead of GOD, who by the way is a jealous GOD, we can be equally assured they come down as easy as a cobweb.

What are you living for today? Are you heaven focused and living for the things of eternity? I believe it was Elizabeth Elliot who wrote; If I can't give thanks, trust, and worship the Lord in every "season, in the face of any set of facts which may touch my life, I am not really a believer. It is here, in my corner of God's earth, that I am assigned my lessons in the School of Fait
