The thing that I love about God is that He is all about patterns. Throughout scripture, we see glimpses of God’s character and nature.
It is hard to believe God’s promises to the degree that we are unconnected to His Word – His patterns.
I was walking with my cousin yesterday, and she said, “Jules, do you think God would be completely silent during our waiting season?”
I told her something that I now believe. “God is so good that He would send His word to encourage us during the wait. Time and again, God encouraged Abraham. It didn’t make the process easy, but it made trust possible.”
The reason for patterns is to show that God is faithful and true. Indeed, we can trust His word. We can trust His timing.
Today, God highlighted Matthew 4:4 to me.
Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: “It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”
God was saying that He did not create man to be sustained by food alone. It takes a balance of God’s word to uphold a man.
The reason you are weary is that you refuse to get nourishment from the Word of God. God’s word reveals His patterns. His patterns reveal His authenticity.
You can trust God to keep His promises. Whatever He has told you, rest assured that He is committed to fulfilling.
