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]

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
Psalm 71
17 Since my youth, O God, You have taught me,
and to this day I declare Your marvelous deeds.
18 Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, O God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
Your might to all who are to come.
Psalm 78
3 what we have heard and known,
what our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children;
we will tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,
His power, and the wonders He has done.
6 so the next generation would know them,
even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn would tell their children.
Psalm 139
For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in Your book
before one of them came to be.
[all emphasis added]
With these Scripture passages in mind
please view the following video movie
and be prepared to know
who Your God made you to be!

Great verses.

I liked the phrase "permanent purpose" in the video. I have too many "purpose" sometimes. Thus my schedule can get too easily side-tracked. Inspiring video to encourage me to stay focused on te purposes I know God has called me to. Thanks.

I needed this today! This was God's way of reminding me that sharing my past and what He has done with it, it's worth telling.

I love all those verses Stephanie! OH, that our children know who God is by our teachings. We need to know that we are made by Him and for Him.

Love you!

I just did a 21 day butterfly series that was awesome. It was sort of along the same lines as this. The butterfly is one of my favorites of God's creation. It so applies to how we sometimes have to wait in our cocoon until we're ready to fly. Good stuff!

Precious Friend,

Oh so beautiful!!

So many go through life not knowing what their purpose truly is in this life time, so sad...oh that they all would come here to read this posting...a beautiful eyeopener for all to read, and the video...again so perfect with these pieces of Scripture and Psalms, but then again God's Word is so very PERFECT just as He is.

You filled me here again today as you always do. You continually bless me as he continues to abundantly bless you my dear friend.

Love you,


This morning in the Prayer Room God brought me to this passage that I spoke from memory at Bob's Celebration service over three years ago--------

1 Corinthians 2:9-10
9 It is written,
"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived what
who love Him---
— 10 but God has revealed it
to us by His Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

These scriptures that you just shared - 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 -
also give a 1-2 punch to my current post - "Dancing with God".

Vs 10 - "but God has revealed it
to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God."

We were all created on purpose for a purpose. Our PURPOSE will be reavealed through His spirit when we surrender to His guiding spirit in the dance with God.

When we allow His Holy Spirit to guide - God reveals His deepest thots for us! I see this more vividly than ever before.

Ohhhh to be dancing in the flow of His spirit....there is no other way to find JOY than in dancing with God in my created purpose!!

Again, my dear...
we compliment each other's thots and purpose because His spirit has purposed our friendship...
in Him.

Blessings my dear friend
