PROBLEMS AND PROMISES

PROBLEMS AND PROMISES
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

We are human.
We fall far short of what we ought to be and cannot be what we want to be even on our best days. At times we find ourselves being the "good" man and at other times we find ourselves being the "bad" man but always we convey that we are simply mortal men;
Mortal men with a need for an immortal God.
Where man presents problems,
God presents promises.
This is praiseworthy.
Here's a list of provoking realities that exist between God and man from A to Z.
Consider which "one" you are placing your trust in and make adjustments accordingly.
Perhaps you will be compelled to create a list of your own.

From A to Z God contends with man and contrasts his problems with His promises.
The better you know Him,
The firmer you'll stand.
Look to the Lord, look to His word, and be healed
"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
Revelation 22:13
And ...
"I am the Lord, and there is none else; there is no God beside me."
