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]

WORDS of Wisdom and Grace


Proverbs 4:7-9
Wisdom Is Supreme
7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you;
embrace her, and she will honor you.
9 She will set a garland of grace on your head
and present you with a crown of splendor."

Proverbs 12:17-19
17 A truthful witness gives honest testimony,
but a false witness tells lies.
18 Reckless words pierce like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 16:23-24
23 A wise man's heart guides his mouth,
and his lips promote instruction.
24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Ephesians 2:6-8
6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— [all Scripture emphasis added]
*******************************************
What words of healing grace will you offer someone today? Each day we come in contact with many people. It could be your child, your husband, your pastor, a stranger at the supermarket, a friend, a elderly person, a neighbor, a gas station attendant. We have words of wisdom that lead to healing grace for them. Will we offer them freely - or are we too busy running our lives to take time to stop and listen?

Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
