Promises Promises

Have you ever been promised something and then that person broke their promise?
Devastating huh?
Did you know that when God gives you a promise he keeps his word and it will never be broken?
His word, the bible, is full of promises for us, promises that we can grab hold of.
There also times when God speaks directly to your heart and has given you a promise for your future and it seems to be taking forever and the doubt is creeping in and you begin to wonder if it will ever happen.
If that's where you are I want to remind you of a story, Abraham was called a father by God when he and his wife couldn't have children and here is where the passage begins.....
'Abraham was first named "father" and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do...when everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis if what he saw he couldn't do but on what God said he would do...He didn't tiptoe around Gods promise asking skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he said. Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting to set him right. But it's not just Abraham; it's also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless.'

.....when everything was hopeless Abraham believed anyway .....

Everything around us will scream at us to look at our circumstances and come up with all sorts of evidence going against what we've been promised I want to encourage you to ,like Abraham, plunge into the promise and come out strong!!
Nothing and no circumstance is hopeless!
I also encourage you to find the promises in the bible for yourself if you don't have a bible go to and plug in the references below (exactly as you see them) to read some fantastic promises and start to believe in a God who truly cares.
Be bold and ask God what he has specifically for you, he has dreams for you you can only imagine!!

Hope again.

Believe again.

Dream again.

Love you friends!!
