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]

What Are We Missing?

In the "story" of our lives as a believers in Jesus Christ - God is writing history [HIS-STORY] in and through us. Do you know His voice when He speaks? Do you recognize His Hand working all around you? Sometimes we get so busy with "life" - our selfish life - what we want to accomplish that we totally miss what God is doing.

John 8:23-24 [ The Message ]
23-24 Jesus said, "You're tied down to the mundane; I'm in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I'm living on other terms. I told you that you were missing God in all this. You're at a dead end. If you won't believe I am who I say I am, you're at the dead end of sins. You're missing God in your lives." [emphasis added]

Let's take this passage as a challenge to truly seek Jesus and the Father's will - what God is doing all around us to bring glory to His Name and then join Him there! Let's not miss it! Let's participate, partake, and taste and see that the LORD is good!

We're not supposed to be living in our present circumstances - but rather in the promises of God - living in our future - where hope is. That's what true FAITH is all about.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. [emphasis added]

Choosing JOY,
