God Did WHAT?

"God finally came through."

Have you ever heard these words... this expression?  I have to say that when I heard this expressed by a caller on the radio today, I quite literally squirmed in my seat.

As if to say God isn't always present.
As if to say God isn't all-powerful.
As if to say God doesn't know everything.

As if to say God in his omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient way isn't ALWAYS there for us, orchestrating the minute details of our lives because he knows what is best for us, and because he holds our very future in his hands.

Hebrews 13:5b

[Note the word "never" used twice for emphasis in Hebrews 13:5b]

If I believe in the infallible WORD of God, the Bible (and I do), then I must believe that God "comes through" for me every day.


Perhaps the problem is that we don't accept (or realize?) his closeness in all that we do -- or that we don't really rely on him and trust him in ALL things -- or that we don't really pray for his help, believing.


See Sally stepping down from her soap box...

But seriously... what do you think?


  1. Excellent thoughts! I sometimes feel like all of the "things" we have are stumbling blocks to true faith in Jesus. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. I think, "Well written, dear friend. Well written."
    Good reminder for me as I go about my day!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
