Today's Dialogue

19 Without becoming weak in faith he (Abraham) comtemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah's womb;

20 yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God,

21 and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.

Do you have a promise this morning? Are there things that God has spoken to you about and said "I will give you this or bring this about in your life?"

I want to encourage you to pick those promises up and believe for them. If they are buried deep within, dig them up.

I had the honor to listen to a local pastor teach on the buried promises. Sometimes we become discouraged because our promises do not come about in our time frame. We become disappointed with God because it is not happening the way we thought it would. This causes us to bury those promises. It is easier to deal with the discouragement or disappointment if we are not looking at those promises every day.

I say to you, "DIG THEM UP!!!"

God is good all the time. If He gave you a promise, He meant you to walk in it.
Remember our time is not God's time. He sees all and He knows when the right time
to bring that promise about.

Be like Abraham that even though his body was failing, his heart was not.
He knew the God he served and He knew that if God promised it, He would bring it about.

I have a practical suggestion to this. Take out your promises. Write them on a card.
Type them up. Put them where you will see them regularly. Then say to the Lord, "This is what you said you have for me. I have not seen it yet, but I know it will come about in Your perfect timing. Help me to have the faith to see it come about."

Lord, today we ask for grace to believe for the promises you have given us. Strength us as we walk through each day not knowing when it will come about, but knowing you have a perfect time for its coming forth. Draw us closer to you so that we do not ever doubt your love for us and your desire to give us those promise. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Bless you today.
