IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I am a promise keeper. You can count on me to follow through on all I’ve said. I desire the same from you. You make promises and commitments all the time. I enjoy them. But they are most meaningful when you fulfill your promises. When you prove your faithfulness it reveals your love and respect for me. Your dedication is valuable and your commitment is noteworthy, but your faithfulness brings me joy. I receive it as worship.
Get to know me. Get to know my promises. The more you do, the more you will enjoy life and learn the value and blessing of rest. When you trust me, you can find peace in the midst of chaos. You can close your eyes and sleep soundly, even when others are worried. I am the one who creates and restores. I am and have all you need. Do not be anxious. Review what I’ve promised and trust me to be your provider.
Review the promises of God (or Google “promises of God” to find examples). Identify one that brings you hope and mediate (think deeply about) it for 1-2 minutes. In what ways does it encourage you? The more you know God and his promises, the more you’ll enjoy God and life.
