Truth For Thursday

I am continuing “Truth for Thursday” here at Being Refined As Silver.  We are on the last chapter of “Lies Women Believe”, chapter 11: “The Truth That Sets Us Free”.  It will take several weeks to review this chapter, so I hope you will continue to come back each week. 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss encourages her readers to take time to savor these liberating, life-changing truths.  She suggests saying each Truth aloud, again and again until your thinking becomes aligned with God’s way of thinking. 

Here is the fifth truth:

God can be trusted.

God is trustworthy.  He has promised to never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).  No matter what we are facing, we can trust God that it will be used for our good and His glory (Romans:28).  Although it may not may sense to us, we can trust God that He is in control. 

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.                                                    For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways.                                                     And My thoughts than your thoughts.”   Isaiah 55:8-9

Put your trust in the LORD and find rest for your heart.

  6. Hi Theresa,
    Toni here. Another one of your new GMG girls. Love this truth. It is soooo worth saying aloud. Beth Moore often says to speak the scriptures out loud. Indeed, His word IS truth.
    Blessings,
    Toni
