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]

Building for the Future


There is no use, no sense, no purpose, no point in building anything that God does not have HIS HAND in and upon. We can manipulate any way we want but the end result will be disaster. Our goal in connecting to our future and all that God wants for us - is to wait for HIM to build it - step by step by His own Hand and by His Sovereign will. Sometimes we must take two steps back in order for God to move one step forward in His plan.

Psalm 127
1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain. [emphasis added]
Psalm 37:3-4
4 Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him and He will do this: [emphasis added]
Psalm 37:7a
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him. [emphasis added]
Psalm 37:23-24, 37
23 If the LORD delights in a man's way, He makes his steps firm;
24 though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His Hand.
37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; there is a future for the man of peace.

Choosing JOY,

God is the foundation of everything we have. He needs to be.
Anyone can have a huge home, a nice car or lots of money. All of these things do not matter, if GOD is not a strong part of these. Before i came to know the LORD, we bought a new home. I felt very empty and lost in this house, even though i have three boys, two dogs and seven birds. What a difference having the LORD in the center of your everything!
