I love this verse for so many reasons! It is by far one of the most comforting verses in the Bible, but also such a reality check.
He is our way maker, promise keeper, miracle worker, light in the darkness, good good Father & so much more. Although the conditions in our life may change everyday, that does not mean that He does!
Yes, life can suck. But God takes the “suck” in life & uses it for far greater. God takes the “hurts” in our hearts & turns them into passion. God uses the things that this world has tried to use and break us to empower His love on earth.
Time and time again I have found myself on my knees while God mends my heart. I do not wait for some “perfect” state before I worship. No, I come to Him broken & beaten. I come before the way making, promise keeping, miracle working Father who loves me dearly. The one who loves you deeply.
Wherever you are at in life, it does not change the fact that God loves you.
No matter how dark life may get, He is the light. No matter if you do not see a way, He is a way maker. Life changes, He doesn’t.
Light in the darkness.
That’s our God. That’s our Father. That’s our hope.
