As my family prepares for this coming deployment, I keep running across verses speaking about God’s faithfulness. Today’s devotional time was no different. The promises are so great. He promises, time and again, to walk beside his chosen ones. To be with them through the good and the bad times. To carry them when they cannot walk through the valleys alone.
He IS a faithful God. I can think back to so many times when God has shown this faithfulness in my own life. When he provided a job right after college. When he provided friends in an unknown place. When he cancelled my husbands first deployment so that we could enjoy our times as newleyweds. When our daughter came into this world healthy and strong. And the list goes on. In so many ways, big and small, my Savior has always been there, keeping me safe on dark roads, comforting me in nervous moments, and cheering me on during the happiest of moments.
He has provided in the past, and I have no doubt that he will provide again now.
“From ancient times no one has heard, no one has listened, no eye has seen any God except You, who acts on behalf of the one who waits for Him” (Isaiah 64:4 HCSB).
The secret to this deployment? Keeping my eyes focused on my Savior and trusting that He will provide.
