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
The courts ruled that marriage was legal between any two people. There was much rejoicing throughout our country. Facebook statuses were changed in dramatic numbers as people updated that they were married. I heard many joke about the new influx of work for Accountants who will be helping many file jointly for the first time, lawyers who will be writing Prenuptial Agreements and will eventually have even more divorce cases to try. This made me think that our human frailties were never more pronounced. God is the only one who does not break promises. The “as long as we both shall live” in the marriage vows is said at every ceremony but 50% of people take that commitment lightly and end their married life with divorce.
Many say that their wedding day is the “Best Day” of their lives. I can only pray that as all these new life commitments begin each partner will feel that way and commit to living “until death” parts them.
Beth Moore wrote the following morning prayer and I think it reflects this scripture sentiment and helps me to make me recall the truth that I need HIM to fulfill my promises each and every day.
1. God is who He says He is.
2. God can do what He says He can do.
3. I am who God says I am.
4. I can do all things through Christ.
5. God’s Word is alive and active in me.
God is alive and still acting today as he was in the times of Abraham & David and He continues to give me guidance and help IF I ask Him for it. I pray for His guidance and intercession and when I depend on Him… Today will be The Best Day!
Lord open my eyes, my heart and my soul to love and accept every person you put into my path today. Help me recognize YOU in the faces of the people I meet today.
