"God's promises are like the stars.
The darker the night, the brighter they sign."
~ David Nicholas ~
"Most of the time God's promises are in your reach.
They are not in your hand. You have to go get them." ~ unknown ~
"You see, faith opens the door to God's promise for you. And patience keeps it open until that promise is fulfilled." ~ Kenneth Copeland ~
"God has promised forgiveness for your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination." ~ Augustine of Hippo ~
"The stars may fall but God's promises will stand and be fulfilled." J. L. Packer ~
"Let God's promises shine on your problems." ~ Corrie ten Boom ~
"I had a choice: I could believe the lies of the devil, in which case I was on my way to suicide, or I could believe in the promises of God, and be taken through my time of trial." ~ Angus Buchan, Faith Like Potatoes ~
"One of the most poisonous of all Satan's whispers is simply, "Things will never change." That lie kills expectation, trapping our heart forever in the present. To keep desire alive and flourishing, we must renew our vision for what lies ahead. Things will not always be like this. Jesus has promised to "make all things new." Eye has not seen, ear has not heard all that God has in store for His lovers, which does not mean "we have no clue so don't even try to imagine, " but rather, you cannot outdream God. Desire is kept alive by imagination, the antidote to resignation. We will need imagination, which is to say, we will need hope."
~ John Eldredge ~
"You are indicting your unbelief by distrusting God's goodness, and you are bringing greater misery upon yourself by disparaging God's blessing. For if you had trust in God's grace and promises, you would undoubtedly be supported. But because you do not hope in the Lord, you will never prosper."
~ Martin Luther ~
"All your days have been written in God's book.
When you go through a disappointment,
don't stop on that page.
Stay the course.
You may be tired, discouraged, frustrated but
don't give up on your future.
Our God is faithful."
~ unknown ~
~ Timothy Keller ~
"The promise of a dreamer's future will always remain greater than their present ability. God will always give them dreams that are further along than their current level of maturity." ~ Wayne Cordeiro ~
"Every promise of Scripture is a writing of God, which may be pleaded before Him with this reasonable request, "Do as Thou has said." The Heavenly Father will not break his Word to His own child." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon ~
"You were given this life because you were strong enough to live it."
We all go through bad things, trails, tests, disappointments, discouragements, the heart break. Each of us have those things, sometimes it seems in abundance, in our lives; God didn't promise we wouldn't go through those things. He promised to be with us when we do. Keep running your race, walk when you need to and crawl if you have to but keep moving toward Jesus. Do not stop.
"The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness,
but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish
but that all should reach repentance."
~ 2 Peter 3:9 ~
