Yesterday was a special day. I received a call from Lance inviting me to come and speak at his church. Some of you reading this blog will ask immediately “why does his invitation create what you are calling a special day”.
Several months ago Lance was in my office a broken man. He had lost everything. The drug dealer demanded payment for his drugs or face the consequences for failure to pay. Some of you know what the consequences can be for lack of payment.
We were able to get Lance into a FAITH-BASED recovery program. He repented and began a journey of commitment to Jesus Christ. He is now on staff of a transitional recovery ministry. His call was a reminder to me of God’s faithfulness.
During our time together on our first visit I was able to talk to Lance and share with him my testimony of how faithful God is in not just for salvation but also restoring His children who stray. Repentance is all that is required to experience God’s forgiven and His eternal grace and favor.
God is faithful to His Word. He has made numerous promises recorded in the Holy Bible. He never fails in fulfilling every promise. We are secure in what God promises. He tells us He will never leave us or forsake us in bad times as well as good times.
God is also faithful to sinners regardless of how broken or helpless they may be. He promises that if we call upon Him He will hear us. He died for sinners. He saves sinners. He is preparing a place for all sinners who repent to come and live with Him forever.
God is faithful to His children. He is our protector, defender, provider, as well as our Lord and Savior. He reaches out to the saved, the broken, lonely, weary, troubled, sick, fearful, and worried. He knows even after becoming His child that we are very much in need of His presence.
“I thank you God for always being FAITHFUL. We have no reason to be afraid. You have told us WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.” AMEN!!!
