They didn’t think it could happen but it did. How often does that happen? We believe something that isn’t true. And we go down with the ship.
In 1912, the British passenger liner, the RMS Titanic, sank in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two and a half hours after hitting an iceberg. 1,517 people are killed. They said it was unsinkable. They were wrong. And, the Band played on!!
Jesus calls on us to know the truth. It will set us free.
We never know the influence our words may have when God is moving in someone’s life. His words don’t return empty. And, we may never know the final outcome.
May we speak the truth at all times.
The very one who argued you down, will sometimes be found, years later, to have been influenced by what you said. ~~C. S. Lewis
We should remember the early days when we first came to Jesus and saw the truth. Those were not always easy days. Friends didn’t understand. Family members laughed at us. They “knew” us too well. But, we knew who we knew.
He was with us through it all. We knew our real treasure. In one way, it seemed like nothing bothered us at all. We were willing to endure anything for Jesus. We were sure of Him.
So, will we throw it all away now? No, we need to stick it out no matter what.
We need to stay with the new plan. It is so much better than how we used to justify our self. The new plan is a sure thing. He has promised to complete everything and so we need to go for the prize. It isn’t going to take as long as we think. He will be back anytime now. We need to thrive on loyal trust. We can’t cut and run away.
We aren’t quitters. We aren’t losers. We are going to hang in and see it to the very end. Trusting Him who is always faithful.
He is the truth.
God has a purpose in what He says to me. There is something He has in mind to accomplish. And, it will be accomplished. He is true to His word. He doesn’t say things He doesn’t mean. What He says will be done.
My heavenly Father and Jesus are the truth. I can count on them.
May I believe His word that He is speaking to me now.
My word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
