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]

Anyone need strength for today? Anyone need a Warrior God to fight an ongoing battle for them? Anyone need to 'scale a wall' that seems much to high?
Exodus 15
2 The LORD is my strength and my song;
He has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise Him,
my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
3 The LORD is a warrior;
the LORD is His Name.
Psalm 18 (selected verses)
For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD. He sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:
1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death entangled me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.
6 In my distress I called to the LORD;
I cried to my God for help.
From His temple He heard my voice;
my cry came before Him, into His ears.
9 He parted the heavens and came down;
dark clouds were under His feet.
10 He mounted the cherubim and flew;
He soared on the wings of the wind.
13 The LORD thundered from heaven;
the voice of the Most High resounded.
14 He shot His arrows and scattered the enemies ,
great bolts of lightning and routed them.
16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
He drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the LORD was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.
28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.
30 As for God, His way is perfect;
the Word of the LORD is flawless.
He is a shield [1-2-3-4-5]
for all who take refuge in Him.
31 For who is God besides the LORD ?
And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
46 The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock!
Exalted be God my Savior!
47 He is the God who avenges me,
who subdues nations under me,
48 who saves me from my enemies.
You exalted me above my foes;
from violent men You rescued me.
49 Therefore I will praise You among the nations, O LORD;
I will sing praises to Your name.
50 He gives His king great victories;
He shows unfailing kindness to His anointed,
to David and his descendants [that's you and me] forever. [emphasis added]
Word for the day:
conquest; win; success; triumph.
Let the LORD be your Warrior God and claim the Victory that awaits!
Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
[Time to FLY]

Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good
a refuge in times of trouble
He cares for those who trust in Him.

I love this verse and I feel like it compliments what you've written here. Love to you!

PS: I've been working through the book for maybe 3 weeks, just a bit here and there while working through Esther as well. Taking my time and reflecting....powerful words written by Mark Batterson.
