God's promises

I am using an old devotion book and my devotion for this morning fit so perfectly for the times we're in I thought I'd share a bit of it:

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering. For He who promised is faithful.


God's word contains promises upon which we, as Christians can and must depend. The Bible is a priceless gift, a tool that God intends for us to use in every aspect of our lives. Too many Christians, however, keep their spiritual tool kits tightly closed and out of sight.
Are you tired? discouraged? fearful? Be comforted and trust the promises that God has made to you. Are you worried or anxious? Be confident in God's power. He will never desert you. Do you see a difficult future ahead? Be courageous and call upon God. He will protect you and then use you according to His purposes. Are you confused? Listen to the quiet voice of your Heavenly Father. He is not a God of confusion. Talk with Him; listen to Him; trust Him, and trust His promises. He is steadfast, and He is your Protector....forever.

Absolutely Awesome post Cheri! Did you know that that verse along with 24 & 25 are my life verses for this year?! I put the button on my blog to remind me of the fact "He is faithful"! God is doing a mighty work with that and other verses that have a similar promise in my life! Thanks for being a "verily verily" in my life today!

Great post, Cheri, and especially for people today who have lost their jobs. The loss of jobs is creeping into our community as well. It is a time to turn our faces to God, for sure.
