Interlude of Bible Verses
I am reminded of God's promises. Among many other revelations I received between the early hours of 12-6am this morning, are these little principles. Prepare for a very deep addition to my blog (perhaps later this evening) which was inspired by my early morning session - but for now, read through these verses God revealed to me this morning.
A whisper, 'You have to choose to believe. Meditate on my words.'
~ "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.
Before you were born, I set you apart;
I appointed you as prophet to the nations." ~ Jeremiah 1:5.
I have to choose to believe. To take it on. Why would God lie? Yet he does not.
~ "God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he not speak and act? Does he not promise and fulfil?" ~ Numbers 23:19.
This is truth. The word of God is truth and life.
~ "For the word of the lord is right and true, he is faithful in all he does." ~ Psalm 33:4.
If the bible says it, it must be true. How easy it would be to question, doubt, reason or try to evaluate that statement. Yet the simplest/hardest task here is believing in clear faith that if the Bible says it is so, it must be so. I must believe in the promises of God.
~ "Abram believed in the lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness." ~ Genesis 15:6
~ "Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior, and my hope is in you all day long." ~ Psalm 25:5
~ "More than conquerors - what, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be againts us?" ~ Romans 8:31
~ "Though I walk in the midst if trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me" ~ Psalm 138:7
~ "Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand the ones who take refuge in you from their foes." ~ Psalm 17:7
Believe. And know. He. is. God.
