I absolutely adore finding little nuggets of truth in the word of God. The more time I spend in His word, the more I find “pockets of gold.”
Recently, I was reading through some books in the Old Testament. While doodling in my notepad as I took notes, I ran across one of those pockets of gold. The Lord showed me that when He has appointed a person or a thing, it is thoroughly appointed. This is true no matter what the situation appears to be. He leaves nothing out.
I studied the lives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I made a list from each name, giving details about how God worked in their lives. What I saw was awesome.
Our God is the God of:
- Abraham: Abraham was FAITHFUL, believing God
- Isaac: Isaac was the PROMISE God gave to Abraham
- Jacob: Jacob was a scoundrel who came to God sincerely desiring His BLESSING
When I put all of this together but looked at it in terms of the character of God, I saw an awesome result.
- God is FAITHFUL (Abraham)
- God keeps His PROMISES (Isaac)
- God is for ALL WHO CALL ON HIM (Jacob)
In a nutshell, God is FAITHFUL to keep His PROMISES to ALL WHO CALL ON HIM.
Pretty cool, huh? Now when I think of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I remember who they were and what God is and what made Him their God.
What is your name? What has God done for you? You can take what He has done for you and make it your testimony for the goodness of Christ in your life. Thank you, Father, that You leave no question as to who You are and what You do in the lives of Your children. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
