Trusting the Promises of God

 

 In your new walk with God, there is only one foundation, THE PROMISES OF GOD. In our walk with Him, we don’t rely on our feelings, our logic, our wisdom or our situations, but only on the word of God.

When Satan attacked Jesus and tempted Him, Jesus used only one weapon to defeat Satan. “It is written.” Matt. 4:1-11

You might face some doubts in the beginning of your new walk with God. For example, if you fall in sin, Satan might use that to make you doubt that God heard your prayer and accepted you when you decided to commit your life to Him. So let us highlight a couple of the promises of God so you won’t fall for the schemes of the enemy.

In the Old Testament, God said; “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:12

If you did your part and forsook your sins and returned to the Lord, then according to His promise, He pardoned you. It doesn’t matter how you feel about it or what the situation is. You must trust and have faith that He is able to do what He has promised.

Jesus promised “The one who comes to Me, I will by no means cast out.” John 6:37

If you did come to Jesus and truly asked for forgiveness of sins and sincerely committed your life to Him, then according to His promise, He will never cast you out. Again, it doesn’t matter how you feel about it or what the situation is. You must trust and have faith that He is able to do what He has promised.

Jesus promised “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Rev. 3:20

If you opened the door of your heart, He is surely in according to His promise. Again, it doesn’t matter how you feel about it or what is the situation is, you must trust and have faith that He is able to do what He has promised.

So rest in these promises of God. We walk with Him by faith and not by sight, or feelings, or situations or logic. 2 Cor. 5:7.   Sometimes also, we want to believe, but we find it hard.   It is okay to pray then, "Lord, I believe.  Help my unbelief."  Mark 9:24  It is also important to get to know your Bible so that you can know more of the promises of God.  The Bible is full of the riches of the promises of God.
