    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Daily Bread (Promises, Promises)

Discussion in 'Water Cooler' started by shortlady, Aug 21, 2010.

  1. Daily Bread (Promises, Promises)

    Read: Gen. 12:1-4; 21:1-7

    Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. —Genesis 21:2


    When people say with a sigh, “Promises, promises,” it’s often when they’ve been disappointed by someone who failed to keep a commitment. The more it happens, the greater the sadness and the deeper the sigh.

    Have you ever felt that God doesn’t keep His promises? It’s an attitude that can subtly develop over time.

    After God promised Abraham, “I will make you a great nation” (Gen. 12:2), 25 years elapsed before the birth of his son Isaac (21:5). During that period, Abraham questioned God about his lack of a child (15:2), and he even resorted to fathering a son through his wife’s handmaiden (16:15).

    Yet, through the ups and downs, God kept reminding Abraham of His promise to give him a child, while urging him to walk faithfully with Him and believe (17:1-2).

    When we claim one of God’s promises in the Bible, whether it is for peace of mind, courage, or provision of our needs, we place ourselves in His hands and on His schedule. As we wait, it may at times seem as if the Lord has forgotten us. But trust embraces the reality that when we stand on a promise of God, He remains faithful. The assurance is in our hearts, and the timing is in His hands.


    Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
    When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
    By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
    Standing on the promises of God. —Carter

    All of God’s promises are backed by His wisdom, love, and power.

     
  2. Numbers 23:19

    "God is not a man that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should change his mind"


    How wonderful!
