The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.
The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time.
you open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Psalm 145:12-16 (NIV)
Most of us actually live in this world.Â That means we know that this world is full of confusion, pain, and burdens that build until we are overwhelmed by ‘Goliaths’ or giants in our lives.Â When we focus on these giants they become larger until they seem to block out everything else in our field of vision.
When I catch myself in this pit, I know that my eyes have strayed from where they should be focused.Â I know that I am to keep my eyes on God and my ears tuned to His voice.Â I know that!Â How do I get back?
I want to share a simple tool that has brought me back so many times.Â The Bible Promise Book is a simple, well-constructed book that in times when I knew what I needed to do but just did not have the strength in the moment to do it…I could find God’s promises at my fingertips.Â As I read His true words, I could feel the power of those very words fill up all the empty places and direct my feet back on His path.
God has inspired authors to create tools that help us to meditate more deeply into His word and come closer and more often into His presence.Â Maybe you have another tool that works for you in these times.Â Please write and share them with me.Â God is faithful.Â God desires to spend time with us.Â He wants to lift us up.Â He wants us to walk in His strength and wisdom.Â God’s promises are ‘Yes’ and ‘Amen’!
