Nowhere in the Bible does it say, “And then God failed me.”
Worries are all around us. We worry about those scary phone calls from our doctors, financial difficulties, job insecurity or loss, family difficulties. They’re all real fears—fears that sometimes steal our breath away and tie our stomachs into knots.
Thankfully, we have a real God, and He doesn’t see any of those things as overwhelming challenges. He’s also a faithful God. Nowhere in the Bible does it say, “And then God failed me.” The God who’s been faithful in the past, who’s supplied our needs, who’s given us comfort, provided jobs, and healed bodies and relationships, is still able to take care of us in the future.
Do you have some of those fears? Here are four sweet promises from God to remember:
1) In Isaiah 41:10, He says, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
2) Zephaniah 3:17 tells us, “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by his love; He will exult over you with loud singing.”
3) In Philippians 4:19, God says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
4) Psalm 86:7 shares, “In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me.”
I’m so grateful that whenever fear pops up in my life, that I have a God who is real and faithful and always approachable. And I’m grateful that to Him, my challenges don’t ever seem too big at all.
