If He did it for them He will do it for me!!

Hebrews 13:8 says, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Acts 10:34 says, "Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism.""

Believing the truth of these two verses, I realize that I can read a story in the Bible, even in the old testament and see how God worked in the lives of people in the Bible, and know that because Jesus Christ never changes and God is not a respecter of persons, He can work the same way in my life too!

Does that mean He is going to part a red sea for me? Well, I likely won't be in the exact situation, but it does mean that when I am stuck between a sea and an army (between a rock and a hard place) either of which could take my life, He can make a way out.

Does that mean that He is going to ask me to build an ark and bring two of each kind of animal on it and wait for the earth to be flooded? No, because He promised He would never destroy the earth by flood again. However, it does mean that when God tells me to do something, I can do it, no matter how crazy other people think I am, and I can rest assured that He is working for my good. I can follow His direction knowing He is bringing me through the flood and placing me and my family on dry ground on the other side of it.

Does that mean that He is going to save me from the fiery furnace? I don't know about that, but it means that when the heat is on, He is standing with me. He will not leave me to face the fiery furnace alone.

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. What He has done before, He can do again! We serve an AWESOME God who cares for us and loves us the same as He cared for and loved everyone else who came before us.
