SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” Numbers 23:19 NKJV
Is your belief built on the word of God or on something else altogether? In these times of trouble and despair, it is important for us to know what we believe. We must build up our belief and develop the type of confidence that will help us overcome every hardship we encounter.
The word tells us in Psalm 34:19 that many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers us from them all. You and I are limited in our own imperfect abilities but there is nothing too hard for God. In His infinite wisdom, God can actually use our obstacles to transport us to new levels of success.
Do not allow the pressures of life to keep you from trusting in God. Satan always comes to challenge the areas in our lives that have the potential to make substantial impacts. Be determined to put your trust in God. It’s not time to quit. It’s time to believe.
God, you sent your word forth into my heart and I let it dwell in me richly in all wisdom. I set my affections on you and trust and believe in your word. I do not fear. I choose to believe you and I will come out as pure gold!
