God Came Through

I read today in Isaiah 64:5 "You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways." I thought about this last year and how God came through for me in outstanding, unbelievable ways! I remembered the struggles I was facing, not knowing what the answer was or how God would "fix it". But He did. He fixed everything. He helped me just as His Word says. He had mercy on my soul and showed up with a vengeance in my situation, as He promises in Isaiah 35:4-5. I also remember that I had decisions to make about how I would conduct my attitudes and actions while in the midst of the storm. I felt the temptation of bitterness, anger and despondency, but as David declared, "Why so downcast oh my soul, put your hope in God." I chose to declare the promises of God. I chose, with gritted teeth, to do right when wrong was being done to me. I chose to love and not hate. I chose forgiveness when I would be justified to retaliate. God came to my side! He rescued me from the pit. Psalm 40:2 (NIV) "He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand." God saves us because that is what God does. It is His nature; He cannot be untrue to Himself. He rescues those who turn to Him. He did not do it on my timetable, but He did it and He did it well....in fact it was beyond miraculous and left my jaw dropped in disbelief at how He orchestrated my victory. He will do it for you. He is not a respecter of persons...God's promises are for all of us! If you're in need of help, the kind of desperate situation where it will take a God size miracle... it is on its way... Simply do right and remember His ways. He is worthy of your trust. He will come through. It's a promise to those who walk humbly before their God.
