Stop and think about the promises that God has given us throughout Scripture. He has promised that those who come to Him for redemption through His Son would not be thrown out (John 6:37). He has promised us that He has good plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11). He has promised to give us rest if we come to Him (Matthew 11:28), and so many more.
How many of us have chosen to believe God? I am not talking about believing that He exists. Many who are reading this believe that God exists. When was the last time we stopped and trusted God's promises? Some may say that their circumstances are extreme. I would say that Abraham's circumstances were extreme, yet God made and kept His promises to Abraham. Abraham was not the only one with extreme circumstances. What about Moses? David? Daniel? Paul? Peter? John? They all faced what many of us would call extreme circumstances. Yet God kept His promises to each of them.
In the end, we have no excuse not to believe God. Today, we can choose to believe that God is faithful to keep His promises. This means changing our lives. However, we find that, after we have changed our lives for God, our lives are changed for the better, and to a degree more than anything that we could have done for ourselves. I challenge everyone who reads this to find one of God's promises in the Bible and choose to believe it.
