The Lord Who Keeps
I was greatly encouraged this morning in reading Genesis 28:15. The Lord said; "Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you."
The Lord has sent Denise & I to many different areas of the world. Many times the areas are remote and dangerous. However, regardless of where He sends us, He has taught us to trust Him.
The promise in Genesis 28, "I am with you and will keep you wherever you go"...was and is life changing to us. It has enabled us to see things through Gods Promise. When facing armed rebels, gangs, hardship in climbing mountains, ministering in leper colonies, areas rampant in sickness or disease, we are constantly reminded of Gods keeping power. Over and over, we hear Him say, "Do not fear, I am with you, take courage." We have learned to trust Him. Through each difficult situation, He gives Denise and I the opportunity to 'Trust Him' or 'React in fear'.
Trusting is better! Learning to rest in His Keeping power is better!
"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Psalm 91:11
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3
Choose to trust His keeping Promise and enter into His rest. He loves you with an everlasting love and is ever present with you. He will never abandon you and will fulfill all that He has spoken.
