Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
The Lord is faithful and keeps His covenant of love. There are times in our lives where we may feel or believe that God has forgotten us. We find ourselves in difficult circumstances and we cry out to the Lord time and again, but nothing seems to change. In these moments we may begin to feel bitterness towards the Lord. But we must guard our hearts because this is simply a tactic and scheme of the enemy.
God desires to deepen our walk with Him and continue to mature us. This often requires for the Lord to place us in a season of waiting. It is in the place of waiting that we must press into the Lord and meditate upon His word and His promises for us. The battle truly takes place in our minds and it is in our minds that the enemy tries to fill our thoughts with lies of doubt, fear, and worry. But every thought in our minds that is contradictory to God’s word is simply a lie of Satan.
The greatest thing we can do for ourselves and the greatest investment we can make is to be a diligent student of God’s word. To spend time daily in God’s word seeking His face. As we come to know and understand the depths of God’s word it will guard our hearts and minds from the lies of the enemy.
