John 16:33(NASB) These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
Jesus made it clear that we would endure hardship in this life. But our Lord gave His children amazing “Divine tools” to keep trials from overwhelming us. For instance, He placed His Spirit inside each believer to guide and empower. In addition, He gave us prayer so we could not only communicate and stay connected with our Father but also bring Him our concerns (Philippians 4:6)
Today I want to focus on yet another one of His marvelous Divine tool: the Bible. Scripture is the actual Word of God Almighty. It is divine truth, and it never changes. It enables us in all circumstances, so we have a sure foundation on which to base our lives and decisions (II Timothy 2:15)
There are thousands of promises in the Bible, countless assurances that we can rely on with perfect confidence. God wants us to learn them so we won’t miss out on blessings He wants to give us these promises and blessings now. And those wise believers will turn the Lord promises into prayers and the cries of their hearts. Do you believe or live in the promises of God?
Let me give you an example that relates to difficult decisions. In (Psalms 32:8) states, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” We can pray God’s words back to Him, saying that we believe He will teach us and reveal His path, when hardships arise; we need a solid foundation on which to stand.
Many times, our emotions can easily lead us astray through faulty thinking. God is faithful and unchanging, so we can trust in His promises, which enable us to rest confidently and act boldly in these very challenging times. Have a great day and rely on the Lord’s promises for your life.
