KEY VERSE: Exodus 6:7–8 (God to Israel)
I will claim you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt. I will bring you into the land I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I will give it to you as your very own possession. I am the Lord!
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I am a promise keeper. You can count on me to follow through with all I promised. Even when you feel the task is impossible, if I’ve asked you to do it and you obey, you will be successful. Fix your eyes on me and not the obstacle. I am greater than any challenge set before you.
You have a chance to trust me—don’t miss out! The alternative is fear and anxiety, but I offer peace and assurance. It’s not a fair comparison, so don’t give doubt any power. Submit to me and watch what I do in your life and those around you. Your steps of faith are not just for you. You’ve got a family and community of believers watching. Some doubt, but many pray and are willing to help when you ask. Trust me and walk with me. I am with you and will give you strength, just as I promised.
Never quit when things get tough. Evaluate what’s going on in your life. Is there anything you want to give up on? A relationship? A project? A goal? Ask God for wisdom and discuss with others who know you well. Then pray for strength, endurance, and success.
