I've been doing a lot of thinking on faithfulness lately. It's probably because of the fact that God has taken my faith and level of trust in Him up to a new level, and in return for my faithfulness, He has shown me His. And even when I fail to be faithful to Him and trust Him, He is still God. A faithful God. It's pretty amazing actually. The stories I could share of the faithfulness of God in this adoption, our personal finances, in our marriage, our children, etc. are absolutely astounding. Literally they leave me in awe of Him and His power.
It is because of His faithfulness that today I can sit here at the computer and know that we will be ok in this adoption. That I have no need to fear anything. For He already has it all covered. I think God is slowly teaching me this over the past two weeks. Two times the Lord has had someone share with me the story of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea and how it was in His time, the perfect time might I add, that the waters parted so they could cross on dry land. Someone else also shared with me that the Israelites had it all wrong when they praised God after the crossing. They should have praised God before the waters parted knowing that they serve a faithful God.
So today, in spite of any fear or worry I have, I choose to praise God before the adoption happens, before the money comes in. For great is His faithfulness!
