We made it! We are on to the next section of our "7 Promises Bible Study" Series: I am Gifted. Follow along as we learn about the gifts God has given us.
There is no better way to end this part of our 7 Promises than with the phrase "enduring forever." This fills my heart and soul with so much hope and joy. Our God in heaven has a place for us, and that promise of hope will never fade away.
As January 2020 draws to a close, I hope we remember to continue this year with God. Some of our goals may have faltered, some of our resolutions may have weakened, but God will forever be our cornerstone. Our hope in him will not waver.
When life gives us difficult situations, how do we endure them? Do we hide in vices to hope the suffering goes away? Do we run to other relationships instead of to God? Or do we use the hope God has promised us to survive? Remember, how we chose to endure our sufferings will produce our life long character.
These passages were so interesting! Out of this word analysis, I discovered the phrase: Wait for God Hopefully. I believe this can be used in SO many aspects of my life. I can seek His will and his wisdom, and then I will wait with hope that my path will be revealed to me. What are you waiting hopefully for?
We should always remember to celebrate and thank God in times of good, happiness, success. However, we can have peace of mind knowing that we can put our trust in His promises. We will always have hope when we have faith in God!
As the first phase of our 7 Promises Bible Study draws to a close, I thought ending with the word redemption seems most fitting. This first set of scripture centered around the idea that we are forgiven. God has sent us his only son Jesus to die for our sins. It is because of this that we are saved from all sin, error, and evil! How glorious it is that we have a Lord of Light!
As we wind down 2019 and approach 2020, I have a challenging question for you. In what ways are you testifying for God? Discover the definition of testify and how you can apply it to your new year!
The theme we are focused on lately in forgiveness, and that forgiveness could not have happened without Christ. I think the best way to thank God for his gift of forgiveness is to try and purpose our life in the image of Christ. This will always be a challenge, but isn't it worth it?
We all sin, but we must understand and acknowledge our faults in order for them to be removed from us. Yes, God can forgive our sins, but we can't stop there. This does not mean we can keep making the same mistakes over and over again. We must confess our sins!
