Encouragement from God's Word
For several years, our family walked through a difficult, ongoing experience that was unlike anything we had ever before encountered. During this time of waiting upon God for desperately needed answers and fulfillment of promises He had given, there were times when I asked questions about the nature and character of God that I had never considered before. "How do I know I have really been hearing from God?" "Does God ever make promises He cannot fulfill due to other people's disobedience?" "Does God change His mind about a promise He has given?" "Would God let us be deceived about what we think we are hearing from Him, and not correct us?" And myriads of other side-trail issues.
Over time we saw the answers to our promises unfold, but not quite in the same way that we had expected. God gave us better than the original promises. We found out that when man obstructs God's plan, God just expands the plan to bigger and better proportions!
Through all that has happened, I am gradually learning Who God is and how He operates. I am learning to hold on in a deepening faith and belief. Jesus proves to us day by day that He certainly is "Faithful and True." And I am still only beginning to learn what it is to pray deeply, desperately, and to have power with God.
I would like to share with those of you who are weary and tired and questioning, some of the Scriptures God has led me to. You will find them at the topical links below. I will add to them as I make new discoveries in God's Word. Before we do that, however, please allow me to recommend a few books to you that have helped our family immeasurably. You can order them at any Christian bookstore:
