The last two years have certainly been a couple for the record books, haven’t they? I don’t think any of us will forget 2020 and how it has changed our lives in so many ways. When I began to get weary about all that is happening in the world, I turn my focus on the promises of God.
Max Lucado writes in his book, UNSHAKEABLE HOPE:
“People of the Promise have an advantage. They determine to ponder, proclaim, and pray the promises of God.
They are like Abraham, who “didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong” (Rom. 4:20 the message).
They filter life through the promises of God.
- When problems surface, they can be heard telling themselves, “But God said . . .”
- When struggles threaten, they can be seen flipping through Scripture, saying, “I think God said something about this.”
- When comforting others, they’re prone to ask, “Do you know God’s promise on this topic?”
The promises of God serve as an apothecary shelf of remedies. Just as the doctor might prescribe a medication for your body, God has given promises for your heart.“
I love that! God has given us promises for our heart. Today if you are hurting, if your soul is weary, would you turn to Jesus and cling to His promises?
Determine today to ponder, proclaim, and pray the promises of God!
This is a beautiful rendition of How Great Thou Art. I get chill bumps every time I listen to it!
