The Reminder

I felt the need to remind God that He has promised to give me the words to speak on Thursday evening when I am standing in my friends black suit in front of a lot of women in Michigan.  I also reminded Him that He said he would bless me with the power of his Spirit and that others would be blessed with his truth. I passionately reminded him that we are running out of time and I have not practiced anything or made notes, or given it too much thought. I'm still thinking about my clothes!   Anyway, after reminding him about all his promises to me of my upcoming event, he took it upon himself to lead me to Hebrew 4.
Hebrews 4 begins by telling me to rest in him, and by doing that I will be pulled towards God's goal for me. Wow! God's goal for me. If I am able to rest in him, he will bring me to his goal for me.  When I receive his promises for me with faith, I will be able to experience a state of rest, and then achieve his goal!
Further down, my favorite part says this: "God means what he says. What he says goes . His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeons scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense,  laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it--no matter what."
He has promised me, and today he reassured me yet again. He is asking me to have faith and to rest in him. Sometimes I am finding it a little unnerving, but for the most part, it's okay. He has always pulled through for me, always. He is God, I am not. He is unconditional all the time, I am not, I know I can count on Him and Him alone. This is why I praise Him.  He is God, He is good, and He has promised.
Say that Again, Jesus, I'm stepping towards you today in the faith that you have given me. I'm reaching out to you, and I love you!
