Faith: Trusting the Promises of God

The current chapter in my leadership training Bible study is exactly what I need. Faith: Trusting the promises of God. I won't go into details on my blog, but our family is facing serious challenges. The kind that break your heart. All you can do is cry out for God to show up.

"Faith sees the promise and the Promiser and expectantly hopes."

"The amount of our faith does not determine whether God answers prayers, for it is the object of our faith, God Himself, who determines the outcome."

from Growing Kingdom Character by Tom Yeakley

Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again. You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1:9-11 ESV

Dear Heart!! Father KNOWS. I am TRUSTING Him to meet you right where you are and to give you the peace only He knows how to give. There are gifts He wants to give you during this time. I trust, too, that you will be able to see and receive them with JOY. You know, I think that's one of the reasons He said the JOY that passes all understanding.

I love you,
