Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God, the Creator of all light, and he shines forever without change or shadow. James 1:17 (Living Bible)
Do you remember being a child and asking someone you loved to promise that they would do something important for you? Even to a child the word promise provided the assurance that what you wanted was guaranteed.
Are we no different today when we struggle and wish for life to be better? Is it at these times that we look to God for His help and comfort? One of the most life changing experiences I’ve ever had was when I realized that the Bible, God’s Word to me, is filled with His promises. Through His Word I have learned that He has promised to always be with me, that He is a good God and will protect and direct my life, and that He faithfully watches over me. What I have learned to do is to claim these promises! By doing this, I feel His presence and through His faithfulness, my trust in Him grows exponentially. He is my source of peace each and every day.
