Encouragement for your daily walk with God
“You can count on it!” I heard my dear pastor, Dr. Richard Strauss, say that a million times about the Word of God. Well, several hundred times, at least. Have you found that to be true?
Are you weary? Maybe you’ve had a rough time of it as of late, and right at this moment you’re faint. Here’s a word for you, “He gives power to the faint” [Isaiah 40.29]. Take this promise to the Promiser and ask Him to honor it. He will, you can count on it.
Are you hungry for God, seeking a closer walk with Him? Here’s your word, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied” [Matthew 5.6]. You can count on that one too.
Are you distressed, burdened by a heavy load of sin? Oh, dear one, listen to this promise for you, “I, I am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins” [Isaiah 43.25]. Take that one to the bank, it’s His promise to you.
Are you thinking you have been forsaken by God? Do you think He has withdrawn His love from you? Here’s a great promise, “The mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but My steadfast love shall not depart from you” [Isaiah 54.10]. Be sure to count on that one!
The Apostle Peter said that we have received a boatload of great and precious promises that enable us to share God’s divine nature and escape the world’s corruption [see 2 Peter 1.4]. Feast on that today. And remember: it’s God’s Word. You can count on it!
Remember Your word to Your servant, in which You have made me hope. Psalm 119.49
