There was a tag that was to start on December 1 which I was to be a part of but I didnt do it. I planned to do it but time somehow ran away from me. I really need to be better at time management... instead of facebooking during my free time!
When it was suggested, this is the statement of faith that came to mind: I believe in 1 God, the Father, the Almighty, Maker of Heaven & earth, & of all that is seen & unseen.
I believe in God because He is
Jehovah-Rophe - The Lord who heals: When I was a kid, I woke up one day with a fierce temperature. I was very sick. I believed that if you prayed in water and you drank it that all would be well. I believe either my mom or dad prayed in water for me, I drank it, went back to sleep and I woke up feeling much better. I remember that time with so much fondness. When I believed so much... when nothing could shake it because I knew that God was in control... ooo... to have the faith of a child once moreo.
Jehovah-Jireh - The Lord will provide: Oh Yes! He does this quite well. I've blogged previously on my experience in college and not having parental support to pay for it. One day I went to the finanacial aid office... and the head guy awarded me enough money to pay up my debt and even overflow into the next school year
Jehovah-Shalom -The Lord our peace: He grants the peace that surpasses all understanding. I remember years ago I had a bad manager. Goodness... I dont think you can escape having a bad manager. I didnt like her demeanor and her I felt she was an ineffective manager. One day at church... it's weird how it happened. I just felt this burden lifted... and I was just at peace with it all. Just like that it went away. She was soon removed as a manager in my department but it didnt make a difference because I was at peace with everything.
Jehovah-Gaden Milchamah - Mighty in Battle and Jehovah-Ganan - The Lord is our defence: Yes. Yes. Yes. God is the ultimate defender. I can tell you that this last half of the year, I have seen some highs and some lows and sometimes I just felt like I wanted to run away from it all but I realized that God's plan is to grow me. If he brought me to it... He will surely see me through it.
Jehovah-Shammah- The Lord is there... here!: My God is here to dwell wherever I am... to govern... to defend... to prosper... What comes to mind is "Relax... God is in control"... He is the Alpha and the Omega... He that began a good work in me... with me absolutely faithful to complete it as long as I remain faithful and steadfast in my walk with Him.
These are a few reasons I believe in God...
