I never doubt it, do you

Updated on October 8, 2012

He keeps His promise

“Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light.” Raymond Edman

When times are good and Gods blessings are lavishedly poured out upon you, remember them. Let what God has taught you in the good times be your rock during the bad times. Let those revelations help you deal with your difficult times. Grasp hold of them as if they were lifelines to you in a crashing storm, because they are. Then the difficult times won’t be so difficult.

I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen Matthew 28:20 New Living Translation

If we cannot believe God when circumstances seem be against us, we do not believe Him at all. Charles Spurgeon

I once experienced a very traumatic experience. In those times God revealed that He was walking hand in hand with me through that hell. About two years later a similar experience happened. It was nowhere near as severe. The reason, because I remembered what He taught me in the good times after the horrid experience passed. It was in reflection after those nightmarish times that He had been molding me. Breaking me free from a destructive habit I didn’t even know I had. In the days, weeks, months and years after He revealed to me how destructive that relationship was and how beautiful a relationship with Him is. How He will never leave me nor forsake me.

God promises He will never leave you nor forsake you. He promises He always love you. That is a promise we should always have as our lifeline when enduring the storms of live.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 New Living Testament

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) for guiding me through the valley of Becca (The valley of trials). I give thanks in the name of Him who walked there before me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Good morning always exploring.

      Yes He is with us always and I am very glad He is, even when I am naughty. When I start to get naughty He whispers in my ear.

      God bless you.

      Good morning michael rivers1

      I always write as the Holy Spirit guides me to. I am happy as I am sure He does that you appreciate our writings. I have found that we learn more in the valleys than on the mountaintops.

      Good morning Mhatter.

      Is there any difficulty you would like me to pray for you about?

      Good morning teaches.

      I believe it is always good to have Bible verses with us throughout the day for when we need them.

      Good morning Timlove.

      It is in the dark times we draw closest to our caring Abba. I don't bicycle much anymore. The pollution here is too bad. I do love hiking in the jungle mountains when in Hong Kong though. I do miss biking.

      Good morning April.

      Yes using Gods many names draws us in closer to Him always.

      Thank you all for your wonderful comments.

      I know what you mean. I fell like I know him better through his names.

      Your writing is sincere and honest teacherjoe. This shared truth reminds me of King David. Despite difficult circumstances, he was able to encourage and strenthen himself. A recent favorite verse of mine is Psalm 27:13,"I would have dispaired unless I had believed I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." Keep on sharing!

      I am happy you enjoyed the hub, the prayers and the various names of God. I like to use the names in my prayers to bring more meaning to them.

      God bless you.
