Trust in God’s promises

What God promised shall come to pass. But its coming is not dictated by your emotion but by your faith. So when it “looks” as if it’s not going to happen because by the world’s standard you are too old, too young, uneducated or unqualified by their standards, only then must you look to the hills from whence comes your help and say, “God, I trust you.” Your sensory mechanisms will cause you to enter into reasoning which will lead to fear if you begin to entertain doubt. But not you! You are of faith and you refuse to allow what anyone has said or is saying to move you. You move by faith. You wake up in faith. You speak in faith. You live by faith and not by sight. So when all others say, “give up,” “quit” or “don’t keep trying,” you look at them and say “If God be for me, who and what can be against me.”
Yes, the facts are present, but God’s truth supersedes fact. Yes, it’s factual that the disease is in your body. It’s factual that you are not qualified for the position according to the company’s criteria. It’s a fact that your spouse said that he or she doesn’t love you anymore. But facts only have power if you believe it to be the final say.

My Bible teaches me that “what’s impossible with man is possible with God” and “I can do all things through Christ Jesus which gives me strength.”
Hold on to His promises, which are established and shall not be changed. Don’t be moved, but hold on to God.
Don’t you quit, because it’s coming. It may seem as if it’s being delayed, but tell Martha Lazarus’ death is for the glory of God. So your delay is not your denial, it’s coming.
