Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Psalm 29 (selected)

1 Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His Name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness.
7 The voice of the LORD strikes
with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert;
the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks
and strips the forests bare.
And in His temple all cry,
11 The LORD gives strength to His people;
the LORD blesses His people with peace.

Psalm 59:9,16-17

O my Strength, I watch for You;
You, O God, are my fortress, 10 my loving God.
God will go before me…
16 But I will sing of Your strength,
in the morning I will sing of Your love;
for You are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
17 O my Strength, I sing praise to You;
You, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.

Psalm 89 (selected)

1 I will sing of the LORD's great love forever;
with my mouth I will make Your faithfulness
known through all generations.
2 I will declare that Your love stands firm forever,
that You established Your faithfulness in heaven itself.
5 The heavens praise Your wonders, O LORD,
Your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.
8 O LORD God Almighty, who is like You?
You are mighty, O LORD, and Your faithfulness surrounds You.
15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You,
who walk in the light of Your presence, O LORD.
17 For you are their glory and strength,
and by Your favor You exalt our horn [strength].
21 My Hand will sustain him;
surely My arm will strengthen him. [all emphasis mine]

Let the Word of God's STRENGTH and His FAITHFULNESS pour over your soul today as you trust in His unfailing love for you.

Choosing JOY,
