God is Faithful
In the last three months, we have begun instituting new programs and initiatives to
improve the quality of life for our residents. While I’d written a grant for the majority of these plans, there were several additional needs that crept up that we did not have the funding for.
I began to pray about these needs and set up fundraising initiatives. Each time God more than came through and provided, often ahead of schedule. A couple of times when it seemed our expenses outweighed what we’d brought in, the money seemed to multiple instead of divide.
In each case, God more than provided for the needs of our residents. I like to say that he showed up and showed out.
I had a need and asked and God was faithful and provided.
God is using His power to speak to my heart. Because, while I had faith He would provide for my residents, I have not always had that faith in my personal life. Even though each time I have a genuine need, God has proven He is more than faithful.
Yet, there are times when I struggle in my own personal life with trusting God to be faithful to my needs.
Time and again we are told in scripture that God is faithful. Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
In Psalms 119:90 we are told, “Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast.”
God is faithful and has proven that, but instead of putting my faith in Him, I have put my faith in things that I can see. Through prayer and supplication, I am asking that God will change my heart and increase my faith.
How has God been faithful to you? Are you faithful to Him or do you struggle as I have?
