Promises, Promises

"Know the promises and trust them; know the Word and live on its basis, being guided by its wisdom." ~Sinclair Ferguson

Someone recently brought up the contrast between believing in God and believing God. I really like where that thought takes me. In the past year it has blessed me no end to discover and remember one Scriptural promise after another. Not for nothing does our gracious King give us these guarantees. His will is found in them. A way of life is found in them. They are pieces of gold to lift us up out of the poverty of the way the world works. Every so often, I'm going to post a promise that I've discovered. Like a safety rope a rockclimber uses, it only looks thin. The wise climber is not afraid to put his whole weight on that rope and is not concerned when his own footing fails.

What would your life look like if you really trusted this promise? Do you believe God? How will it show?:

"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." ~Joshua 1:8,9
