I often find myself wondering if promises are real. There have been plenty of things happen in my life to hinder my belief in the words people say.
Let’s face it, we let each other down. We’re human, and flawed, and broken. There is not much we can depend on in this volatile world of everyone taking sides, judging people once close to the heart, and making assumptions about faith when the whole picture isn’t anywhere close to accurate.
Politicians will fail, leaders will make the wrong choices, massive groups of people will lead you astray.
This is in our DNA.
How do we, as Christ followers, find peace in the reckless present? Where can we go when our fears get the best of u, and we need clear direction and stable foundation to stand upon?
God’s Word is the answer for us believers and those searching for truth. Our heavenly Father makes promise after promise to love us, fight for us, give us mercy, and strengthen us in our weakest moments.
You may be thinking, “So what? These are just more words on paper. How does God follow through?”
I have been a witness to God’s promises being fulfilled in my life, my husband’s life, my children’s lives, my friends’ lives….the list goes on.
As trials occur, and they always will, God remains steadfast and loyal. I can reflect on past circumstances when my faith was weak and wavering, my maturity in Christ was that of a young child, naive and small. I did not see His hand in my pain, but He was there. As time has passed my faith has grown and I can look back at those same circumstances and see God’s hand everywhere.
He protected me and my children from a husband and father who self destructed because of drugs.
He carried me through three years of single motherhood when my self-esteem and self-care was nowhere to be found.
He offered my little family new life when He brought Bryan into our lives.
He provided friends and a church family to help rebuild our faith.
And much, much more.
The key to believing God’s promises is to read them over and over while looking for His work in your life. It can be difficult during trials, but that is when it’s most important to trust and believe.
