Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
I'm so thankful that God is the same today, tomorrow and forever more. It's funny how it's not until your back is against the wall that you realize just how awesome and consistent God truly is.
Today's reflection in a nutshell has continued to hit me over the head throughout the entire year. When I say God has never felled me yet, that ultimately means He has an impeccable track record within our relationship. I can't think of one time when God hasn't rescued me, provided for me, revealed things to me, given me understanding & direction or simply just been there for me in the midst of everything I've ever encountered.
Sad to say, I either forgot or lost sight of this notion more than a few times through out this journey. I questioned if I was worthy enough to receive everything He would have for me that includes His grace, mercy, blessings or favor. A lot of times, I knew for a fact I didn't deserve it at all. But when I look at God's track record within my life, everything He said He would do or everything I have specifically asked in His name that aligned with His Will, He has always came through.
One verse in particular says, His grace is sufficient enough, but with the year I've had in this case His Track Record ALONE is Sufficient!
The only time I could ever say that I felt as though God had abandoned me, I had to think about what part I played in the situation. You see God is not going to partake in foolishness nor is He my personal Santa Claus or Genie in a Bottle. He is my Heavenly Father that always orders my steps accordingly in order for me to prosper, grow, learn and ultimately for His name to get all the glory and praise! Trust, I wouldn't dare take away any credit from Him knowing I can't even function without His hand upon me.
So I challenge you to review the personal track record God has had in your life.
Where has He failed? Where has He fallen short? How has He not been there for you? Sometimes, I think the better question to ask is how does our track record stack up with relation to Him... Despite the numerous times we have failed Him, we must keep in mind He has never and will never fail us!
