He who Promised is Faithful (getting back to basics…)

I’ve been mining the Scriptures for the real meaning of ministry, getting back to basics. It’s fascinating to watch the guys in the Book of Acts figure out how to run a ministry on the job. (It actually gives us very clear guidelines that I’ll be sharing more about  in the coming weeks).

But the single most important key to the believer’s life is faith. According to Hebrews 10:3, we are to “hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering.” Other translations say “hold unswervingly to the hope we profess.” Why? “For He who promised is faithful.” 

What are the promises God has given you?

Has He promised to heal, deliver, prosper or bless you, simply to keep you in His care? 

Then stand on those promises. 

To be honest, sometimes I read the Scriptures on paper but I struggle to believe them. I show my lack of faith through the words I speak, the thoughts I think, the actions I take. But that is like a man who looks in the mirror and as soon as he walks away, he forgets what he looks like (James 1:22-25). We cannot just be hearers of the Word; we must be doers. We must live what we believe.

First, you have to actually get in the Word, and we have a brand-new devotional out to help you do that. It’s a short, sweet, simple Invitation into Intimacy with God.

Remember: whatever reality you see in front of your eyes today is  no match for the Creator of the universe. 

What you see now is not all there is. There is More.

Whatever you are doing right now — if you haven’t yet done this today — ask yourself what are NOT believing for and confess it quickly. Have the waves crashed over you so many times you no longer believe?

A new day begins with confessing our unbelief, and putting our faith in the One who is faithful.

Have a great second half of your Friday and a blessed weekend!
