No failure with God
He is never late, always on time
God is not man that He should lie.

Lyrics of a song from a cd playing. In the scenes of the seemingly endless rain it is possible to lose sight of the Son who has promised to be with us through it all. Yea, when the rain of no work starts and it seems the dark clouds of ‘no vacancy’ ‘we’ll get back to you’ ‘we are sorry you didn’t meet our requirements’ don’t look like they have plans of rolling away.

The ruler of the dark attempts to sow weeds in our gardens as we wonder: is God late in coming through for me on this one. Gently He whispers: i make all things beautiful in its time. The rewriting of an exam we were sure we would pass first sitting does not change the truth that with God we are victorious, yea more than conquerors even in the centre of the rewrite storms.

No rain, no storm, no weeds of the ruler of the dark can ever negate the unbending truth: God aint man, He can’t lie for He does not talk from the two sides of His mouth. Thus, whatever the shadow of valley of death may be to us, we are assured that with every step He is right there with us. And the rivers created by the rain wont submerge us…not for a sec.

To not lose sight of the Son in the midst of the rains futilely threatening to drown you, always remind yourself of that which you know. And when the storm bellows say to it: Am blessed and beyond the curse, let the unmoving clouds of application sending know that as long as the earth there would always be a time for everything, hence they too shall pass. Above all because the Son had said “it is finished” you would come forth victorious, stronger, humbler cause you refused to feed the weeds of doubting thought bumps but gave strength to what the True Vine gave you by recalling and acting upon the words of the Son.

God is not man, so He does not lie. He is not human, so He does not change His mind. Has He ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through? Numbers 23:19

Even when i walk through the darkest valley, i will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and staff protect and comfort me. Psalm 23:4

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. Eccl 3:1

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

When you go through deep waters, i will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. Isaiah 43:2

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:11

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Roman 8:37
