Cynthia's Thoughts: "I am the same God"

God continued, "I'm the same God who brought you from Ur of the Chaldees and gave you this land to own." Genesis 15:7 MSG


This verse was in my reading plan for today.  God and Abram are discussing God's vision for Abram.  Abram at the age of 90+  was being told he would have many descendants when he did not yet have a single child of his own.  God was giving him a plan that he could not see the logical steps to it being fulfilled.  But the God reminds Abram what he has all ready done for him.  God can do God-size things that are beyond us.

This new year is bringing some unexpected change and direction to our family.  At the moment we don't know exactly what the future holds other than it is vastly different than what we thought a month ago.  Last year we took a leap of faith and saw God meet all our needs in ways we didn't expect.  And here we are again needing to step out in faith in a new direction.

It would be so easy for us to freak out and stress out over the numerous unknowns we are facing, yet we find ourselves strangely calm as we remember what God has already done for us.  If God can do all that he did for us in 2011, surely he can work things out for us in 2012.
