“Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob,
all the remnant of the people of Israel,
you whom I have upheld since your birth,
and have carried since you were born.
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
God’s promises are unswerving. As Samuel said: “He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.” So far has helped us, why, then, you think that he is going to abandon us? Doubt comes naturally to humans. As rational beings, we accept only what can be perceived through the senses. A few other things we cannot perceive directly but we can infer by using logic and reason. For everyone is very difficult to discern the things that cannot be seen and this is where faith plays an important role. The author of the Epistle to the Hebrews says that faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. With faith in God we know that He will grant us all that he has promised us. However, we must remember that there is a plan that has to take place rain or shine. This plan of God is perfect and contains some steps for us to complete. It is possible that some of the tasks that we must execute do not look nice and conducive to meeting the promises of God, but we can be sure that everything that happens or we get to do is what is best for us.
Let us rest, then, in the promises of God and let him take care of our welfare as we take care to obey his instructions. If God says he will care for us, sustain us and deliver us, we can be sure that he will. He has shown he is faithful since we were in our mother’s womb. Rest in him because for him nothing is impossible.To God alone be the glory!
