A Letter to a Father Standing on the Promises of God


I see you waiting and wondering what to do next. I know things can be a bit frustrating at times. I urge you first to be still. Be still so that you can hear God. Be still and trust God.
Why trust God? The reason you should trust God is that in the book of Numbers chapter 23 verse 19 it says “God is not a human, that He should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”(NIV) What you should understand if God said it then it is surely so.
What are these promises you ask? God promises never to leave you nor forsake you according to Hebrews 13:5. No matter where you are in life God is with you and not only is God with you, he will never leave you. According to Romans 8:28 all things will work together for your good. In Mark 16:16 Jesus said: “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” God wants you to believe and trust in him. I could go on and on about the promises of God, but there is one particular book of the Bible that I want to show you. In the book of John chapter 14 verse 15 the first promise is the spirit of truth given to those who love him and keep his commands, and if you continue reading, you will find more promises. The real reason I want you to pay particular attention to the book of John is that in chapter 14 verse 21 it reads “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” This is why you must continue to stand on every promise, so that Jesus can have a more intimate relationship with you.
