“Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?” Job 11:7 NIV
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” Maya Angelou
With our Father, nothing is impossible because:
We have a helper. “So we say with confidence, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:6
We have a loving Father. “See how great a love the Father has given us, that we would be called children of God; and in fact we are.” 1 John 3:1
We have a Counselor. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
We have comfort in tough times. “As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you will be comforted.” Isaiah 66:13
We have a family. “But Jesus replied, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to His disciples, He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
We have our needs met. “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (Emphasis mine)
We are loved. “Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love.” Psalm 109:26 (Emphasis mine)
It’s so easy to forget the promises of our Father when trouble is twisting us into knots, when sorrow is constant and loneliness goes on forever. If we look back at our walk, we’ll see these promises were true then, are true now and true forever, no matter the feelings. The feelings are valid, important and teach but our Father’s promise are true no matter what due to his unfailing love.
We doubt, worry, avoid and feel shame many times when trouble comes, but your unfailing love rescues us. Thank you for your unfailing love. Thank you for picking us up and setting us on our feet. Thank you for making us overcomers. Thank you for making us rich, rich in your love. Thank you for a family, your kingdom. Thank you for your son, the first born. Thank you for your promises which never fail, though we do.
