For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does. Psalm 145:13 (NLT)
Abraham was faithful because God is faithful. Abraham was able to step forward in faith, not hoping that God might do something, but trusting that God would keep His promises. God certainly did.
What has God promised you? Think about some of the promises from God’s Word:
God will supply our needs (Philippians 4:19).
God’s grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Believers will not be overtaken by temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13).
God has promised victory over death (1 Corinthians 15:42-44).
God has promised that all things will work together for our ultimate good (Romans 8:28).
God has promised salvation (Acts 2:38; Ephesians 2:8-9).
God has promised eternal life (John 10:27-28).
God has promised that He will always be with us (Hebrews 13:5).
And, this is just a start. We can be faithful because God is faithful to us. Even when we are faithless, God is faithful (2 Timothy 2:11-13).
Our fear, apprehension, worry and doubt can be resolved as we point our minds back to God’s promises. As we continue to remind and assure ourselves of God’s faithfulness, we become more faithful in the process.
Which promise stands out to you today? Put the verse somewhere that you will see it over and over again. Carry it in your pocket. Every time you begin to worry or doubt, read the verse. Remind yourself that God is faithful.
