For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise. Hebrews 10: 36
As Christians our goal is to become “mature” in faith. This is a lifelong process. We will come in contact with many doubts and obstacles throughout each day. Count it a blessing to go through the experiences of this ‘growth process’ while standing firm in faith. The testing and risk God takes is all part of the promise. When we respond with obedience it brings us in line to receive His faithfulness.
You depend upon God’s power working in your life, making it possible for you to stand on His strength alone. This is what it means to stand on the promises of God; to trust only in Him and believe in His competence. The knowledge of God reveals His promises. It is through these promises you discover life as God meant it to be.
Pray and watch for His faithfulness. Go to Him, and remind Him of His promises, of what He said He would do.
Don’t try to twist His arm and persuade Him to do something He’s not inclined to do. Don’t say, “Well, You probably don’t want to do this for me, but I would like to ask You anyway.” It brings joy to His heart when His children come to Him humbly and say, “Please fulfill this promise for me today Lord”, and then simply wait, watch, and believe that since He said He will, He will.”
He has given you His great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world today. Hold steadfast to the knowledge that your God is faithful. He has given you many comforting promises to remind you that He will never leave you nor forsake you.
If He says He will…He WILL
