day no. 12,726: something i found myself saying‏

“God will work all things of those hidden in Christ to their good and to His glory. He is more committed to both of those things than we are. So if you go in that, you cannot fail for the object of your desire is faithful.”

I recently wrote this in an email to a brother in Christ encouraging him to bravely go about the business of being alive in the course of uncertainty in the certain future held by God.

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

See the order?

Delight in God.
Receive your delight.

But this is not a quid pro quo sorta dealio.

We do not have to conjure up affection in order to receive right affections.

The psalm merely means to encourage us in the promise of receiving that which we long for if we long for the salvation that is of the Lord.

2 Timothy 2:11-13

11 The saying is trustworthy, for:

If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
12 if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful

for he cannot deny himself.

Do we know how each and every detail of our lives is going to work out?

Do we know how faith in Jesus works out?


If God is faithful, faith will prevail, because He said so.
