Put Your Confidence in God

When we bow our knees to the Lord our God, knowing He has sacrificed so much for us through His son Jesus, seeking His will for our lives in faith, He will answer us and give us what we need. He will not let us suffer more than we can bear.

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”

(1 John 5:14-15)

Seek riches that moth cannot corrupt and rust cannot consume, for real riches, true eternal riches, come from God. The rich store gold in their purses and goods in their homes, but the wise, who seek God’s will, store eternal riches in mansions that will not fade.

Take comfort in God knowing the rich have received their reward. Our reward is yet waiting for us in heaven, and neither man nor demon will be able to take away what God has generously given to us, His elect.

Count it all joy when God allows us to wait for His answer to our requests. His plans for us will not fail, for He purposes His will so that we glorify Him in all things through our patient endurance. Therefore, brothers and sisters, be of cheer; put your confidence in God.

    Thank you Jack, its comforting to know God’s will for us is for good when we believe and trust in Him. He is forever faithful!♥️
