God’s Promises

I love the following quote by Jerry Bridges, it is a reminder of why relying on God’s truth is so important in fighting the daily battles of life.

“Here’s a principle to keep in mind: The promises of god are as real as the circumstances you are in. Your circumstances say “God has forgotten you.” Your circumstances say, “I look for God, and just when I need God to come through for me, God doesn’t seem to be any place.” That’s what your circumstances say. The promise of God says, “I will not leave you. I will never forsake you.” And that promise is just as real as the circumstances you are in. And so by faith, we look beyond our circumstances and we look to the promises of God.”

Be encouraged by His faithfulness:)
