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 19 (selected)
For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun,
5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from His pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run His course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart. [emphasis added]
Day after day the skies pour forth speech - they declare the glory of the Hands of our God. If we neglect to praise Him - even the rocks will cry out! Let's join the skies and praise the LORD together for Who He is and all He has done! He is faithful and good!
Looking Upward and Choosing JOY,
[Led by the Spirit]
