He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name – Psalm 23:3, NLT.
The Lord has been speaking to me about the struggles of having faith in Him, believing in Him and trusting Him which we often have to deal with as His children. Faithlessness can be justified in many different ways depending on one’s circumstances. One may not believe in God or His word because they think God doesn’t love them enough, or because they have committed an unforgivable sin, or because they have not perhaps prayed/fasted enough or simply because they feel like they are not deserving. To God all these really do not matter and are no reason why God would not bless or work wonders in your life.
God has been therefore saying to me, if you are struggling to believe that I can bless you because I love you, at least believe that I can do it for the sake of My integrity. For the sake of who I am and for My name’s honor I will do it for you and for the fact that I am not a man and therefore I do not lie, I shall fulfil my word in your life. For the sake of my faithfulness and justness, I will ensure that you see my goodness in the land of the living. If you cannot believe that I can work wonders in your life because of the love I have for you, at least believe that I will do it for the honor of My own name.
