Assume that you were on an island with nothing there that could sustain you or even deliver you from being there. What would you do?
Would you cry out to your Maker, your Father in heaven, or would you just sit there in a hopeless condition? The first thing that you would say determines whether you have Faith or not.
Do you truly believe that there is a Father in heaven that made you and the world and everything in it?
If you believe in the One true God, then you would know that you are not alone. No matter where you are or no matter what you go through, He is there with you.
Your Heavenly Father sees you as He sees every fine grain of sand upon a beach. He sees every one of them.
Every grain of sand is made up of the energy that He sustains them with. His life penetrates everything in the whole universe. There is nothing that He doesn’t care about and sustains.
So, imagine being alone on an island just like the Apostle John. He was not alone, and God spoke mighty things to him that now effect everyone forever to be able to read them in the Book of Revelations in the Bible. He was not alone, and you will never be alone.
He has known you from before the foundation of time. He knew you before you were even born. He knew the life you would live whether you would make mistakes or not.
He knew who He died for and forever intercedes for them and knows that they would forever be secure in Him.
Yes, this is the day to count the cost to trust Him totally. Thou He slay me, yet I will trust Him Job said, and God blessed him with an abundance more than what He took away from him.
He gives and He takes away and everything He allows works together for our good.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at The Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before The Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
