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]

2 He is my loving God and my fortress,
my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield, in whom I take refuge,
who subdues peoples under me...
12 Then our sons in their youth
will be like well-nurtured plants,
and our daughters will be like
pillars carved to adorn a palace.
13 Our barns will be filled
with every kind of provision.
Our sheep will increase by thousands,
by tens of thousands in our fields;
14 our oxen will draw heavy loads.
There will be no breaching of walls,
no going into captivity,
no cry of distress in our streets.
15 Blessed are the people of whom this is true;
blessed are the people whose God is the LORD.

NESTING by Susy Brower

My Daughter-in-Law wrote this today......and we all cannot wait for Baby Girl AND JESUS to arrive on the scene!

by Susy Brower
I am a nesting nut! Besides organizing the entire house, I have the baby's room decorated, clothes washed, bags packed, and even have the phone numbers ready to share the news. I am about as ready as I will ever be for this baby - and good thing for she is due in less than a week.
All this preparation makes me realize how I fall short in preparing for the Lord's return. Am I anticipating it like I should? Am I getting ready? If I were truly excited about it and expecting it to happen any day now, I would be getting the room ready (preparing my heart) washing the clothes (getting rid of sin) packing bags (storing treasures in heaven) and have the phone numbers ready (telling others about the news).

Ready for a baby!
Just like my baby could come any day (and she better come soon!) Jesus could come back any day. Are we nesting?

Matthew 24:42 NKJV - "Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.

Hebrews 11:1 [NIV 1984]
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
What is on God's agenda right now in your life - in this new season - that seems to be a very TALL order of your faith?
Are you up for the challenge of trusting God with it? What are you doing to PREPARE yourself for it?
I'm asking the same questions of myself right now. So let's join together to follow through on FAITH ... living, real and active FAITH ... the kind of FAITH that stretches us beyond what we are capable of - and moves us into the place of trusting God in His ability to equip us for the tasks at hand. Are you with me? Are you armed with the Word of God? What verse are you claiming through this?
Hold tight to Jesus and walk TALL in the Spirit .
