God does not promise us rosy circumstances, worldly success, or the fulfillment of all our wants, but He does present an ABUNDANCE of promises that, IF we cling to them, will help us stand during tough times.
His guarantees include:
forgiveness of sins for all who repent (Luke 24:47);
triumph over sin and death for all who receive God’s wonderful gifts of grace and righteousness through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17);
an Advocate, the Holy Spirit who will never leave those who love God and accept His commandments (John 14:15-21);
peace of mind and heart that the world cannot provide (John 14:27);
rest for the weary who bring their heavy burdens to Jesus (Matthew 11:28 – 30);
eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ (Titus 1:1 – 2).
In a world where people and circumstances disappoint, we can experience true JOY by discarding our sense of worldly entitlement and placing our hope in God’s promises.
Dear Father God,
We can find rest in You. Our hope comes from You.
You alone are our Rock and our Salvation.
You alone are our Fortress. We will not be shaken.
You are our mighty Rock and our Refuge.
We can trust in You - at all times.
