"When All Else Fails"

“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Joshua 1:5 b NIV).

Why is it that when the worst comes to the worst we turn to God for help with all the faith that is in us? I have made this heart change many times in my own life and I would like to share with you two recent ones:

We needed to make a hotel reservation, but the online system didn’t allow us to select a pet friendly hotel. Right in that moment we had to rely on God because we didn’t want to smuggle our dog into the hotel like we had done before. The Lord was faithful again and made it happen for us according to our faith!

The other situation was that we had run out of money and there was no income in sight for a couple of days. We turned to God and were actually glad that we had no money because now our faith was really strong in Him. He was faithful as He always is. Only a few hours later some money was brought to us that helped us pay a bill, support our leaders and put some money aside.

It is a good thing when you come to that place where your only hope is in the Lord and when everything else you tried fails, because then you experience the truth of His word that He will never leave you or forsake you. He is the only one that is always faithful and what He says He will surely carry out for you. So let this word encourage you today and let Him always be your first and last resort to turn to.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
