S.M Lockridge shared the following powerful message. When you don't know what to do and don't know where or who to turn to, think about this . . . ? "He's the one who made us. It is He who made us and not we ourselves. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. No means of measure can define His limitless love, and no farseeing telescope can bring into the visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply. I'm telling you today . . . you can trust Him.
No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing. He's enduringly strong, and He's entirely sincere. He's eternally steadfast, and He is immortally graceful. He's empirically, powerfully, and impartially merciful. He's the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world. He's God's Son. He's the sinner's Savior. He's the centerpiece of civilization. I'm trying to tell you, Church, . . . you can trust Him.
He does not have to call for help, and you can't confuse Him. He doesn't need you, and He doesn't need me. He stands alone in the solitude of Himself. He's august, and He's unique. He's unparalleled. He's unprecedented. He's supreme. He's preeminent. He's the loftiest idea in literature. He's the highest personality in philosophy. He\'s the supreme problem of higher criticism. He's the fundamental doctrine of truthology. He's the cardinal necessity of the spiritual religion. He's the miracle of the age, He's the superlative of everything good that you can call Him. I\'m trying to tell you that . . . you can trust Him.
He can satisfy all your needs, and He can do it simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak, and He's available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He sees, He guards and He guides. He heals the sick, He cleansed the leper, He forgives the sinners. He discharges debtors. He delivers the captives. He defends the people. He blesses the young. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent. He beautifies the meek. I'm trying to tell you, Church . . . you can trust Him.
He's the key to knowledge. He's the wellspring of wisdom. He's the doorway of deliverance. He's the path of peace. He's the roadway of righteousness. The highway of holiness. He's the gateway to glory . . . you can trust Him.
He's the master of the mighty. He's the capturer of conquerors. He's the head of heroes. He's the leader of legislators. He's the overseer of the overcomers. He's the Governor of the governors. He's the Prince of princes. He's the King of kings. He's the Lord of lords. . . you can trust Him.
His office is manifold. His promise is sure. His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy. His burden is light, I wish I could describe Him to you. He's indescribable because He's incomprehensible. He's irresistible because He's invincible. You can't get Him off your hands. You can't get Him off your mind. You can't outlive Him, and you can't live without Him. Pilate couldn't stand it when he found out that he couldn't stop Him. Pilate couldn't find any fault in Him, and the witnesses couldn't get their testimonies to agree, and Herod couldn't kill Him. There was nobody before Him. They'll be nobody after Him. He has no predecessor. He'll have no successor. You can't impeach Him, and He's not going to resign. . . you can trust Him.
He's the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning and the end. The first and the last. He's all things. He's the giver of life. He's the joy out of every sorrow. He's the light of every darkness. He's the peace that passes all understanding. He's the giver of every good and perfect gift. . . you can trust Him.
There's no God before Him. They'll be no one after Him. He is the first. He is the last. He is preeminent. There is no other God" . . . You can trust Him, Church. YOU CAN TRUST HIM!!!
I would have loved to sit in this congregation listening to S.M. Lockridge's voice booming out this powerful message! Do you trust Him - I mean really trust Him? How can we go wrong when we put our trust in HIM?
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. -Psalms 18:2, 3 (ESV)
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. - Psalms 37:5 (KJV)
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. - Psalms 91:2 (KJV)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5, 6 (ESV)
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation. - Isaiah 12:2 (ESV)
I am Diana Sorenson. I am a church secretary and also work part-time for a faith-based ministry that reaches out the “near-homeless” to help them transition back into the stream of life.
I came out of a 29 year marriage and dealt with verbal, emotional, mental, & financial abuse. I’ve learned the impact of our “words” on people both uplifting and damaging. I truly want my words to be please to God and uplifting to those around me.
Psalms 19:14 is my prayer – “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” It is my hope that something in my blog will encourage and uplift someone out there that may be struggling with some of the same issues I have and realize there is help and hope.
