That is what prompted me to try and share with her my woes....I wanted to share my pain and I guess find relief for a little while. Or maybe to find some nugget that would make my hope spring up new.
Because I did not know her well and she did not know me well, my explanation was very brief and did not include any detail whatsoever. Yet her response was exactly what I needed to hear. It was the word G-d had been speaking to me but I needed to hear it from someone else's lips....she said, "G-d is faithful!" Immediately my mind was flooded with all the verses G-d had been reminding me of. This simple statement silenced the tormenters of my mind. I had an inner peace while the storm raged around me. The storm is still raging...my peace is there though.
This morning I was working on a Beth Moore study about the Tabernacle. The section I was on this morning included scriptures from Gen 15 and 22 (the covenant G-d made with Abram and the offering of Isaac). Here are a few important points I gleaned from my study:
- During the giving of the covenant, Abram was sleeping. The covenant does not depend on us - it depends on G-d alone.
- G-d Himself provided a ram - caught in the thicket by its horns - Yeshua is our Horn of Salvation.
Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the faithful way; I have placed Your ordinances before me.
