The Faithfulness of God

Sometimes, things happen that remind you of the faithfulness of God and the fact that he is alive and very much interested in our everyday lives. I still don’t always get why but God is still involved in all of our lives. Now, I am not referring to feel good nature stuff like, oh, the sunset on the beach, the glorious mountains in the Alps or even the beauty of new life in that of a newly born child. I am talking of when God meets you when you need Him but aren’t expecting Him. He may not solve your problem at the moment but He comes and reminds you that yes, He is still involved.

Moses never made it to the promise land but at every “darkest hour” the faithfulness of God was evident even when his wasn’t. What am I talking about? Well, yesterday, in the midst of my own personal and selfish storm, my lack of faith became evident to me. But that was before I popped in over at Pop Dan’s on my lunch break just to check on him and maybe cheer him up. For the next 40mins, God spoke to me in clear and concise terms through Pop Dan and for a good portion of that time, tears simply flowed.

Many of you know that I am not an overtly emotional guy except when anger is involved but this was different. Pop Dan doesn’t know what is going on and still doesn’t know but nothing he said was off point, nothing. Before I went to bed two nights ago, I had written a sentence in my personal journal (not going to share what it is). It was a simple sentence but straight to the point. I think God read it and led me to Pop Dan (a decision I made yesterday). I thank God for a couple of things…1. His faithfulness is beyond comprehension. 2. I thank God for moms, dads, grandpas and grandmas for answering the call of God to be prophetic and to pour their lives into people like me.

Keep your eyes on Him in these days He knows your path and exactly what you need. It sounds like you are in the dealing of God.
