You Can Trust Him

“God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” Numbers 23:19 NLT

You will never catch God in a lie. He has never broken a promise to you. You may feel like He has, but you have just not waited long enough for the fulfillment of the promise. You may have failed to meet the conditions of the promise. Maybe unbelief spoiled the promise.

Why would Christ go to all the trouble of leaving Heaven, taking on humanness, suffering on a cruel cross, conquering death, Hell, and the grave only to abandon you now? He was for you before you knew Him. Why would you question His love now?

Whatever you are struggling with today, my friend, whatever has been robbing you of sleep is never bigger than the love God has for you! Others might fail you even when they do not mean to do it. God cannot fail. His faithfulness is great. Lean on Him with all your heart. He has no ulterior motive and no dagger in His back pocket. If He had wanted to destroy you, He would have left you where He found you. He came looking for you first, remember? He is for you, not against you. Never let anyone else have as much of your heart as you give to Him. God is your safe place, your hiding place. Lean into Him, grow to know Him more and more. Tell your heart to trust Him.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
