Promises, promises

by Cally Robertson

Today I was struck by the fact that God fulfills His promises.  Yet Kelly Minter reminded me that “God’s promises aren’t necessarily realized without struggle.”  

This is such a good word for me, as sometimes the inevitable hardships and obstacles in life cloud my view and cause me to doubt the Lord.  I just want to encourage you, even if you are in the midst of an incredible trial, that the Lord is faithful.  Believe God and believe His promises, whether personal to you or those in the Bible.  Easier said than done, but I have found, even just this morning, that saying “God is faithful.  Do not doubt God’s promises,” over and over again makes it easier to do.  I know this blog doesn’t have the most comments, but I challenge you to find a promise in the Bible that you need to believe today and write it down or post it as a comment.  It will be just a little bit easier to believe.  

You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.
Joshua 23:14

The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.
Psalm 145:13
