I have started a new little habit in my life as an educator. I have been visiting twitter chats for educators. One of the groups that has been so refreshing and uplifting is a chat called #ChristianEducators. Each week we discuss the application of God's principles in our personal and professional lives. Last week was all about promises.
What a beautiful thing it was to see us just pour out the promises we knew from God. It was like a fountain overflowing...scripture after scripture of the promises we hold and count on. I have reflected on that through the week. I am not sure we really grasp who God really is. Our infinite minds try to often to place Him in a box. We do not know the depth of his love. We don't understand the purity of his desires. We are so clouded by this world, our flesh and Satan's lies we lose some of His immense power, love and faithfulness. We can trust Him, like we will never trust another.
And this week, I realized a little more of how much I can trust Him and His promises. I can walk through my days laying every moment in His hands, knowing He has it ALL. He will never disappoint me the way people do. He will never lie. He has my very best interests at work, and it is completely pure and out of love. It is not like any relationship we have or will ever have on this earth.
It is my desire to just continue to grow closer and that He will just keep revealing who He really is. My problem is always that I allow this world to get in the way...I forget how much I can trust. I don't need to grab hold of the plan. I need to walk by faith. I have a hope in an incredible-all-powerful-all-knowing-loving Father. The true grasp of that may never occur on this earth, but I will continue to pull back the layers trying to get there. Pulling closer to Him, pulling away from this world.
Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."
