I don’t know if you are like me. I love God. I’ve known Him most of my life. I spend time with Him getting to know Him better and I love to tell others about Him. But I have to confess that sometimes I forget WHO He is.
When I worry, I forget that God is in control.
Jeremiah 29:11-For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Philippians 4:6-7-Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus
When I am scared, I forget that God is my protector.
Psalm 3:3-But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
When I have negative thoughts about myself, I forget that God is my maker.
Psalm 139:13-16-You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
When I am overwhelmed, I forget that God is my guide.
Psalm 48:14-For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will guide us until we die.
When I am in need, I forget that God is my provider.
Philippians 4:19-And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
When I am exhausted, I forget that God is my sustainer.
Hebrews 1:3a-The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command.
When I am in a hard point in life, I forget that God is my refuge.
Psalm 46:1-God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
I’m not proud to say I forget about God sometimes. I don’t’ really forget about Him but I fail to trust Him in all things. These promises show WHO God is. He is not just around. He is not just someone to learn about on Sunday’s. He isn’t just someone to be thankful to in the good times. He is someone who I need to trust in all of the seasons of life. I need to give up my control and give it to God because He is the one who holds me in the palm of His hand!
