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]

SHINING STARS



Lamentations 3:40-41
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.


WORSHIP

Philippians 2 (selected)
Shining as Stars
12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.
14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless [upright] and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16 as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.


UNITY

Micah 6:8
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. [all Scripture emphasis added]


HUMBLE KINDNESS

So good to be sharing life with you during all of our many seasons of living. How good and sweet it is to know the encouragement of fellow pilgrims as we travel.

Have a great week!
