I’ve learned that closed doors are not threats to my destiny. I’ve learned that when someone exits my life, the right person enters it. I’ve learned that people lie. I’ve learned that God keeps his promises. I’ve learned that people will betray you, but God is loyal. I’ve learned that you can be alone while standing in a crowd. I’ve learned not to be concerned with what people think about me because frankly, most people don’t think about me. But God knows my name.

When my soul is in anguish, I think only in this way: Jesus is good and full of mercy, and even if the ground were to give way under my feet, I would not cease to trust in Him.
God is the giver, and we are the receivers. And His riches are gifted not upon those who do the greatest things but upon those who accept His abundance and His grace.
Jeremiah 50:7 says God is the ‘Habitation of Justice’. That sums up everything about God’s faithfulness in three words. If He is where justice dwells then we need not fear he will deal with us capriciously. Everything He does is honest and true. He never alters His favor or opinion due to a whim or feeling. If God is the habitation of justice, which He is, He will never judge or punish unrighteously. Every decision He makes is 100% perfect and just. Wouldn’t it be nice if earthly judges could be right all the time, but even if they can’t God can because He is the habitation of justice. He is where justice dwells and I’m so thankful that this One who is 100% true and just, by His love and sacrifice enables me to call Him Savior and Lord!!
God is not made up of parts. It’s not like God is one part sovereignty, one part justice, one part immutability, one part omniscience, one part eternality, one part love. God is His attributes at all times.To understand any single attribute of God, you must understand that attribute as it relates and connects with all the other attributes of God. For example, the love of God is eternal. The love of God is sovereign. The love of God is immutable, the love of God is holy. God’s justice is a loving justice. His Holiness is a loving holiness and His omniscience is a loving omniscience, just as his love is an omniscient love. And so, the danger we must guard against is extrapolating love from all of the rest of God’s attributes, as if it stood alone.
We judge trees by their fruit, and so we judge Jesus, and then we can find out what kind of a heart He had. We find in Him love; therefore Jesus had a loving heart. He bore the luscious fruit of perfect love. There was no hatred with His love, no venom, no spite, no selfishness; He loved His enemies and prayed for His murderers. It was not a fickle love, turning about every new moon, but a changeless, eternal love. “I have loved thee with an everlasting love” (Jer. 31:3.)
In our culture, having feelings or emotions is often equated with weakness. This is a lie that is deeply ingrained in many of us. God created feelings, surely like anything else they can be misused and abused, but the intent and purpose of feelings came from God, since he created emotions. Why is it difficult to believe that he himself has emotions?
Probe deep within Him. Explore every corner. Search every angle. Love is all you find. Go to the beginning of every decision He has made and you’ll find it. Go to the end of every story He has told and you’ll see it. Love…
It is impossible for God to lie. His Word is always in complete agreement with His nature and character, and therefore His very words release His power to accomplish what He has said. This is what the angel declared to Mary: “For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37). The word for “word” is rhema, which is the freshly spoken Word of God. The word “impossible” means without ability. An expanded literal translation of this verse could be, “No freshly spoken word from God will ever come to you that does not contain its own ability to perform itself!”
The peace of our souls does not have to rise and fall with unpredictable people or situations. Our feelings will shift, of course. People do affect us. But the peace of our souls is tethered to all that God is. And though we can’t predict His specific plans, the fact that God will work everything for good is a completely predictable promise.
