You ever wondered about the faithfulness of our God? I am sure that during this time of change there is a struggle on some front within your faith system. I can say this because I know from experience that my faith system has been rocked. The faith system of believing God for who He is and for doing what He says He will do is still in place, but I have to be honest, I shook a little as I started to see things unravel from the so called normal of life. My faith in the normal was shaken and really it needed it. I say normal life because it was going to Starbucks and sitting down and meeting with God for a few hours before heading to the office was normal for me. One Executive order changed just one part of my normal and rocked my world. How would I ever meet God again? How would He know where I moved too? Will I ever get to go back and sit in a Starbucks again? These may seem like ridiculous questions, but I am sure you have places that are the same for you. Some of you loved going out and sitting at a restaurant to eat and not having to clean up after yourselves or your children. Now you find yourself doing the work that you have never done before and wonder if you will ever get to eat out in peace again. It may be that you are missing getting together with your church family and wonder if you will ever see them again. It may be that you are pleading with God to let your children go back to school because you were not meant to teach algebra and geometry to 6thgraders. Wherever you find yourself, you must keep in mind that even if your faith in the world and normalcy has failed that God is still faithful now and will be forever and ever.
Take these words to heart from one of my most favorite songs, “Faithful Now” by Vertical Worship.
I am holding on to faith
'Cause I know You'll make a way
I don't always understand, I don't always get to see
But I will believe it, I will believe it
You make mountains move
You make giants fall
You use songs of praise
To shake prison walls
I will speak to my fear, I will preach to my doubt
You were faithful then, You'll be faithful now

Faithful Now lyrics © So Essential Tunes, All Essential Music, Be Essential Songs
I want to leave you with a prayer that I have been praying and singing for several weeks now. I pray that the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you. I pray that He is gracious to you and gives you peace. I pray that there is a peace that passes all understanding within your heart and that as normal begins to change in the world we realize that normal never changes with our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. He is faithful now and will be faithful forever.
