It is so important that we keep believing, that the One who has made every promise to us is forever faithful. Though we may go through times of uncertainty and discouragement, those times do not change the truth of who God really is.
Commit your future into the hands of your loving God and Father, may your heart be filled with hope and peace for our God is the ultimate promise keeper. 1 Corinthians 1:20 – For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. So, don’t give up, hold fast to the hope that you profess, for our God is faithful to keep His promises! Hebrews 10:23
Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish. Isaiah 46:10
God’s promises tell us what He will do, but not when He will do it. Very often we lose patience and do things our way, like Abraham we may be pressurized into taking shortcuts, or like Moses we may take matters into our own hands. Our actions have consequences. Joseph, on the other hand, waited patiently and saw God’s promise fulfilled in His life. Though the testing was severe the reward was astounding.
Wait patiently; you will see God’s promises coming to fruition. Don’t rush, God will make all things beautiful in its time.
Psalm 121 is my favorite psalm as it speaks so much about the character of our Lord. I often need to be reminded that the Lord is my Helper. He is the powerful God who watches over not only the entire universe, but He also watches over me! What comfort these truths bring to my soul. He cares about every detail of my life. When I’m weary and I’m in the valley, I know that the help I need comes from God.
Prayer: Thank You God, that I can look to You. I’m grateful that You are bigger than my trials, my fears and my struggles. I trust in You and I look to You alone for the hope and strength I need. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
When it comes to the battles we face, anyone can walk away. It takes no courage to walk away. It’s a lot less painful to turn our backs and leave. We may not have the courage to face up to the enemy. But our God provides a well of strength that we can draw from anytime we need. He gives courage to all who say “I cannot do this alone.”
God assures us that the war won’t be easy but promises us that if we hide ourselves in Him He will fight the battle for us and let us share in the victory. Don’t give up. Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. Exodus 14:13
Many people believe quality of life only exists in the possessions and wealth collected in this lifetime. True legacy is what lasts for eternity.
God’s Word reminds us that we’re called to build our legacy on His truth and that “the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever.” Psalm 112:6. Think about how you’ll be remembered—by loved ones, by your community, your children and grandchildren.
“More than anything else let them know where you stand with the Lord Jesus Christ, for this will be your lasting legacy.”
Our days are numbered. The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day.”
“There’s a boy here with 5 loaves and 2 fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?” John 6:9
Jesus fed five thousand men besides women and children with just 5 loaves and 2 fish. This is an amazing miracle recorded in the book of John. This was possible all because of a young boy who was willing to give Jesus what little he had. Throughout the Bible we see instances like this. The widow of Zarephath, gave her very last meal to Elijah and through the famine she never ran out of food. God can use what little we have, whether it is our talent or money or whatever it is, to do amazing wonders. If you have nothing to offer Him, He can use even your nothingness. All He wants is a willing heart. Are you willing to give your all to Him?
‘But the people living there are powerful, and their cities are fortified and very large; and what’s more, we saw giants there!
– Giant like situations will always be part of life.
– There will always be giants that we have to deal with.
– However, the giants must not intimidate us!
– We have a big God for whom nothing is too difficult.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I will not fear the giants that I am facing right now in my life, but I will believe that nothing is too difficult for You and You will fight the battle for me. Amen
“He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold” (Job 23:10).
Child of God, do not lose heart, but learn what God is like.” Nothing will sustain the children of the Lord in hard times like knowing God’s character. You learn what God is like in the darkness of the night, when you feel overwhelmed and burdened and full of fear and uncertainty. When you feel most alone, God is nearest to you.
Get to know the Lord. Nothing matters more than this.
Ponder His patience.
Consider His ways.
Remind yourself of His goodness.
Linger at the foot of the cross. Experience His love and faithfulness.
