Flashback Friday God is still God!

But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets… (Daniel 2:28a NLT)

Listen, I have one simple thought upon which I want you to focus. Here it is: God is still God. There are so many situations and voices trying to grab our attention these days. Everything from the pandemic, to the constant reminders of the racial inequality and injustices in our world, are trying to convince us that God is actually not who God says that God is. Nevertheless, despite the challenge, difficulty, and seeming endlessness of certain situations, the truth we know about God yet stands.

God is still doing the miraculous. God is still opening the right doors and closing the wrong doors. God is still healing ALL MANNER of sin, sickness, and disease. God is still undoing, redoing, and outdoing. God still has all power. God is still love. God is still loving us at our most unlovable point and forgiving us of things for which we cannot forgive ourselves. God is still bigger than any obstacle you will ever face. God is in your right now and God will be in your tomorrow. God is still working. God is still our hope. God is still keeping promises. God is still restoring marriages. God is still providing and making a way out of no way. God is still breaking chains and setting people free. God is still reconciling relationships. God is still seeking and saving those who are lost, confused, and disappointed. God is still speaking. God is still listening. God is still comforting. God is still answering prayers. God is still birthing new life. God is still fulfilling dreams. God is still able. God can still be trusted. God is still God. Jesus is still Lord. God still loves you and has a plan for your life. Fix your eyes on Jesus. God is still good. God. Is. Still. God.

Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you! Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you! God will take care of you, through every day o’er all the way; He will take care of you; God will take care of you!

Loving and praying for you,
Pastor Danielle

This is not so much a comment on this particular blog entry, although I do appreciate your faith. I grew up in the church in the 60's and 70's. If you do the math, you figure out I'm now 65yrs old. With all the nonsense in the news right now ( southern Baptist Convention), I thought I would look up my old church. WOW, what an amazing improvement! Looks a lot more like "what would Jesus do"? If I still lived in Arlington, I would probably stop in for a service or two, which is saying a lot, since I no longer participate in any organized religion. Maybe I'll check out one of your online sermons. Asheville NC has been home since 1988.
