I’ve given myself fully to the Lord and I am always whispering that I’m ready to travel through the storm. But as the waves grow higher, I’m sometimes enveloped with anxiety and fear. Do you know that feeling? How we say we’re trusting God, but our eyes reveal the terror in our souls?
And our Father whispers His promises to our hearts.
Do you really think that I would let you be destroyed? Do you really think that after sending my one and only son to die on a cross for you…after you chose to trust me for salvation and a home in heaven…do you think after all these thousands of years… do you think I would let something happen to you now that I can’t bring you through? I’m here! I won’t let anything happen that isn’t for your good. There’s no need to be afraid. I am with you.
Why pray God’s promises back to Him?
Maybe you’re saying, “Where does it say that in the Bible?”
God’s Word is full of His promises to us. According to BibleInfo.com, it has been estimated that there are 3573 promises in the Bible and other sources have cited as many as 7000! That is a TON of assurance from our Father in heaven. We truly must know God’s Word in order to receive his promises. And not only are we the benefactors of his promises, but the power of praying God’s promises to him is also unable to be measured.
Praying God’s promises is a beautiful expression of prayer. When we remind God of His Word, He is pleased for two reasons. 1. He is pleased that we know His Word. 2. He is pleased to receive the glory in fulfilling His Word.
We can’t pray God’s promises unless we remember them, right? The Praying the Promises Bible reading plan and journal identify 31 promises of God that we can pray in confidence!
April’s Bible reading plan topic is:
Praying the Promises
INTRODUCTION to the Challenge
Each month I host a monthly Bible reading plan and journal challenge to help our community enjoy reading God’s Word together and encourage our hearts to be faithful to Him. Together, we have completed over 40 Bible reading plans, including both annual and monthly reading challenges. I’ve developed all sorts of strategies to help us read God’s word faithfully and there is nothing like this monthly system we are working through together.
Many readers have requested that I list our monthly resource at the beginning of this announcement post because you already know you want it and don’t need the details. So here you are! This month’s journal is available for purchase as a digital download.
