July 17, Today’s thought – Steadfast and Sure

Good Morning

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Hebrews 10:23

God’s children often find themselves in positions of profound difficulty. He leads then into tight corners. From here there seems to be no way of escape. No human judgement would have permitted such predicaments had they been previously consulted.
What are the attitudes of His children when they are placed in circumstances such as these? There is but one! A steadfast and sure trust in God! Refusing to look at circumstances. Look above them. Both light and darkness are alike to the One who dwells in them. Our loving Heavenly Father seeks the highest good for each of His own.We are in the school of faith, and there are lessons to be learned. Even God’s severe dealings are dealings in live. He “scourgeth every son whom He receiveth!” (Hebrews 12:6)
Where can one ind faith?
In some hour of desperate need it will be born within just when we are “at the end of the rope.” a precious experience given to a child of God is knowing no helper but God himself. “When He hath tried us we shall come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10)

Holding on . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
