“For the word of God will never fail.”
Luke 1:37 New Living Translation
One beautiful day, we were driving near a lake when a herd of cattle crossed the road in front of our Jeep. Slowly, most of them ambled to the side of the road then to pasture. However, this cow stopped just before the road’s end because her calf began to nurse. The calf must have been hungry, as it was oblivious to the potential danger of cars on the road. The mom stood her ground to accommodate her calf and guard her offspring. The calf trusted its mother to take care of it, even if the situation was dangerous, drinking the milk she provided as nourishment. The calf wanted to be fed right where it was.
“Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.”
Proverbs 30:5 New Living Translation
I long to be that trusting in my Heavenly Father, no matter what situation I find myself in—even in the midst of the most daunting circumstances. I know God’s heart longs for me to stop right where I am and be nourished again by His Word.
“And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.”
Romans 15:4 New Living Translation
I’m sure you long for His presence and the peace that comes from His words, too. Let me assure you—no matter what state you find yourself in, He loves you and desires your complete trust. His promises are real. He will never leave you, nor forsake you. Spend time in Scripture and let your Father in heaven reveal His true nature to you.
