Encouraging Words on God’s Promises

Posted by Cinda On April - 30 - 2013

Change is everywhere these days. In fact, do you know anything that doesn’t change, except God’s Word? Buildings decay. Plant life dies. Weather shifts. Our attitudes, health, and relationships continually vary, but GOD’S WORD IS CHANGELESS!

Oh? You beg to differ? God didn’t answer your prayer?

cookingjoyLet’s take a look at some of God’s PROMISES…
John 15:7 “IF you abide in Me, ask what you will!”
Matthew 11:28,29 “COME to meTAKE My yoke…”
Proverbs 3:5,6 “TRUST in the Lord… and He will…”
Isaiah 40:31 “WAIT on the Lord, shall renew…”
Jeremiah 33:3 “CALL unto Me and I will answer…”
Acts 16:31 “BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and…”

Note that the condition is always OUR PART, not on His ability to perform or fulfill His promise. Nothing ever changes that. But don’t forget, God doesn’t always give us what we ask for. He is too wise for that. Since He knows the end from the beginning He gives the strength we need to live through the trial rather than remove it.

Take a look at what Joseph went through. He was thrown into a pit by his brothers and landed in prison in Egypt. Then, you might ask, why didn’t God keep Daniel from the lion’s den or Paul from shipwreck? God is a Master at taking us through problems rather than removing them. WHY? Because He knows the end of the story, we don’t. I’m sure that neither Joseph, Daniel nor Paul would exchange their experience for the end result. Many of us would say the same.

When you go through a heavy trial, remember, GOD’S PROMISES NEVER CHANGE! It’s up to us to trust and believe in Him who is bound by His Word. We can depend on Him to walk with us through it.

“Camp” on this: Through trials, we learn to trust in God’s sovereignty and hopefully allow Him to develop our character; to be conformed into the very image of Jesus Christ. No matter what you are going through, trust God with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6) and believe that His purposes for your life are far greater than you can imagine. Jeremiah 29:11
