When I was younger, I had a different concept on things of life. For instance, my thinking was that if you got sick, just go to the doctor for the answer; he would know exactly what was wrong and what to do to make it all better.
As you too have probably experienced, that is not always the case, is it? Have you been in a situation where you have gone to the doctor out of concern only to find out that the doctor was puzzled by your situation? Yes, I was disappointed when I realized that doctors don’t know everything like I thought they did when I was younger.
When I was younger, I also used to think that all “older” women were “mature” women—wise and full of grace. On my life’s journey I have discovered that is not the case. In actuality, age has very little to do with maturity. I know of some younger women who have wisdom and discernment beyond their years. It has stemmed from their walk with God and His grace working in and through their lives.
When I was younger, I believed nothing was too hard for God. I was taught that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Now that I am older, I can say God has proven this over and over again in my life. Life can hold disappointments and disillusions, but God is trustworthy. His promises are tried and proven.
My doctor does not always have the answers, but my Great Physician is all-knowing. People and circumstances in my life might disappoint me, but my best Friend never has and never will.
This one thing I do know—God’s Word is true, alive and powerful! His promises are the real deal! God does what He says He will do, and He always keeps His Word! Claim His promises—they are intended for your claiming.
