An Encounter with Truth

“For I proclaim the name of the LORD; ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and upright is He. Deuteronomy 32:3-4 (NASB) 

“You’re in great financial shape.” 

I never thought I’d ever hear these words. But that’s what my financial planner said after looking at my budget, lack of debt and compensation in my new job. I’m in far better shape than most. Facing uphill challenges and a shaky budget as a single mom taught me practical and spiritual lessons.

In a financial crisis, don’t trust in man or credit cards.

Trust God.

After years of uncertainty, mistreatment, financial struggle, betrayal, and even individuals taking advantage of my vulnerability, El Emunah, The Faithful God, remained true to his character, his commandments and his compassion.

And all I want to do is praise El Emunah. He’s my rock. “Let us sing for joy to the LORD, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of my salvation,” Psalm 95:1-3 (NASB).

El Emunah, you are my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my salvation, my strength, and my redeemer. I can count on your faithfulness. Thank you for being my refuge during my days of trouble. When my heart was faint and I called on you, you heard me and rescued me quickly. I’m amazed that I can continually come to you. Thank you for your abundance.
