When we have been let down, and we let down, God doesn’t…!


“God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, 

that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He promised]. 

Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not 

make it good?” 

Numbers 23:19

 

We have been let down on countless occasions. Heck, we have let others down on

countless occasions and the temptation is to look at everything through that filter.

But that is not the case with the Lord. He will never let us down. He will always keep

His word no matter what. He won’t back down or retract any promise

He made to you. The enemy might make you think God has given up on you but

He hasn’t. He loves you and won’t back down on what He promised you.

 

Don’t lose heart and don’t get weary in the waiting. God is faithful and will come through for

you. He has not forgotten about that problem you are having. He has not gone deaf to

your prayer. He hears you loud and clear and will help you. He is not a man…

He doesn’t belittle

He is not spiteful

He doesn’t abandon

He is not judgemental

Don’t think there is ever a time He gets tired of listening to you.

He is not a man…

 

Because He is not a man you can trust Him. He wants you to trust Him!

He will bring to pass every promise He has ever made to you. I know that’s a bold statement

but it’s true. It’s something I am coming to grips with as well.

You don’t need to worry.

He loves you and He is faithful to you!

Bless you, friends!

Is God’s kindness genuine?


Why is God good to us? Seriously…..! He is God and He can

do whatever He wants. No one would be able to put Him on

trial for His actions. So my question stands, why is He good to

us??

When we were meant to be condemned, He defended us….

When sin killed us, He sent His Son to deliver us….

When we stab Him in the back by our actions or

blatantly disobey He still forgives us and loves

us….

When we make mistake after mistake He is patient

with us….

When we think we are beyond saving , He saves us…

When we think, “this is it, there is no hope for me,

I really messed up,” He gives us another chance again

and again….!

 

Why is He good to us…!!!!!

 

There are a lot of reasons to explain why He is good

to us. He is God and He has His reasons and it is in heaven

where we will see the full picture.

But I want to share a verse with you that sheds a bit of light

on the answer to that question:

 

“Or do you show contempt for the riches of His kindness,

forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness

is intended to lead you to repentance?”

Romans 2:4

 

The last part of that scripture stopped me….

God is kind to me because He wants me to repent!!

This scripture was written to Christians so what was

the He really trying to say? As I see it, God could deal with

me any way He saw fit but He wants my heart. True

repentance comes from the heart and God’s desire is

that I draw close to Him. So He extends kindness

to me in the hope I will go back to Him. He wants me to

repent of the crazy things I have attached myself

to. He wants me to leave those things and follow Him!

That really ministered to me….

 

But before I go on I would like to make something clear.

God will extend kindness to us but He is a God of justice and

He hates sin and in His eyes sin must be confronted. He

will make us deal with sin in our lives. He will chastise us

and so on but He will also extend kindness.

He will not only use the rod on us or push us away

but He will also use kindness. Don’t take His kindness for

granted because it is not in vain. He does all those things

so we can make our way back to Him. Which way are

you running today? Are you running away from His

kindness, does it make you feel awkward? Accept His

kindness, it’s one of the things He uses to draw you

back to Him. He could use fear to draw

us to Him but He wants our heart. Don’t reject His

kindness….Repent before the Lord. Turn away from

sin. This is my call as well. There are things I need to

turn away from. My heart belongs to God and He wants

it, with nothing held back. What will you do?
