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]

While We Wait

Are you, perhaps, in a place of waiting for God to do His work - but knowing and accepting that "being still" and "resting in God" [in prayer] is what He requires while you wait for His next move? Often, this place feels like a desert, but it can be a place of great joy, contentment and peace if we think on certain things while we're there.

Philippians 4:6-8

6 Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Psalm 5:3

In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before You
and wait in expectation.

Choosing JOY,
