Sharing Our Faith Together

Confident in God’s Faithfulness

First posted 13/1/2021. We continue to post new thoughts but hope you find encouragement and blessing in revisiting some we have previously published.

Much has been said in the past couple of weeks about the hope we can take from all the signs of new growth, which are becoming more and more evident in the world around us. Indeed, when I went to church, to print off the notices, last Friday I was thrilled to see the daffodils in the grass at the front are really beginning to come up! Each of these signs, however small,  remind us of God's faithfulness to us and that we can be confident in that knowledge. 

There are so many quotes from the Bible which re-enforce these points so I have just chosen a few which really speak to me.

So we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not fear; what can man do to me?"  Hebrews 13:6 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let the steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.  James 1:2-4

So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful creator and continue to do good. 1 Peter 4:19 

But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you  and protect you from the evil one.  2 Thessalonians 3:3

Whilst trying to pull the ideas together for this 'Thought' two very different worship songs seemed perfect. I decided to include both (and I'm sure each of you will have a preference!) because, if nothing else, it highlights the scope we have to worship and praise our God.

In these strange and challenging times let us all move on through today and every day, whatever they may bring, with 'Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow'. Amen
