This is a repost from a few years ago, but it’s one of my favourites, so enjoy 🙂
When my husband Philip and I were beginning our life together we had to believe God to provide for us as Philip was busy at bible college finishing his studies and we had two young children. I learnt back then how important it was to not look at my circumstances, the uncertainties of our future or what I didn’t think we had. Instead God taught me step by step to fix my eyes on Him and the promises He had made to me in His Word.
I learnt daily the importance of going to God’s Word every time I got afraid or started worrying and to find a promise. I would then write it down on a card and put it in my pocket. It became my weapon against fear, worry and any lies the devil would try to come against me with. Throughout the day I would regularly take those promises out to look at and declare over our circumstances.
I still keep promises in my pocket from time to time when I am pushing for something to happen or I am concerned. Those promises have seen me healed of sickness, give birth to six babies with no pain, complete my studies, helped me to face and overcome financial difficulties, navigate relationship issues, raise a beautiful, healthy family and see us travel the world with our kids.
God is faithful to His Word – its part of who He is and therefore He is alert and active watching over it to perform it. (John 1:1) When we receive and believe what God says to us our trust and faith is made stronger and what we once thought was out of our reach or impossible becomes possible and a reality in our lives (Romans 10:17).
Today whatever you are facing or believing for God to do, I encourage you to find out what He promises in His Word and then get into agreement and apply it to your life. Write His promise to you down or put it on your phone or other device and every time you think about it or get into worry or stress take that promise out and pray and declare it with everything you’ve got.
“Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it”. (Jeremiah 1:12)
“For the word of God is alive and active”. (Hebrews 4:12)
“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God”. (John 1:1)
Prayer: Lord thank you for the promises in your Word. Please help me to find what you have to say regarding my circumstances and future and to declare them today. I choose to hold onto and believe in the promise I’m putting in my pocket. In Jesus name Amen
