Dealing with Uncertainty on YouVersion read by Brian and Andi Hale Day 4 of 5
Pick Up God’s Declarations
Joshua summoned all Israel, “…you know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one word has failed of all the good things that the Lord your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.”Joshua 23:14
Joshua spent most of his life enduring adversity, setbacks, and disappointment. And yet, he never stopped believing that God would keep His promises. By the end of his life, Joshua saw God’s faithfulness come to pass, which is why he told the Israelites to recognize and remember God’s promises.
The thoughts you fill your mind with are crucial because what you cling to influences your worldview.
If you choose to dwell on God’s promises, you start to recognize God’s blessings during uncertain times. Plus, trusting that God will redeem your present pain equips you to walk forward in faith and keep on fighting.
As you walk forward today, reflect on some of God’s promises, and let them transform the way you think:
God will sustain you.
Cast your burden on the Lord,
and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
the righteous to be moved.Psalm 55:22
God’s peace will guard your heart.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:7
God delights over you with singing.
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.Zephaniah 3:17
God will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.Psalm 32:8
God is your refuge and strength, your help in times of need.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.Psalm 46:1
In all things, you are more than a conqueror because God loves you.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:37-39
God will never leave you or forsake you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.Deuteronomy 31:6
God’s perfect love casts out all your fear.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.1 John 4:18
Nothing can separate you from God’s love.
[nothing] in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:39b
God’s not done with you. God’s NOT done with you. God’s not done with YOU.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.Philippians 1:6
Pray God’s Promises:
God, I’m so thankful that the Scriptures are filled with Your promises. Help me to cling to what I know is true. Remind me of Your faithfulness. When I am tempted to forget what You’ve done or how You’ve shown Yourself faithful, cause my heart to remember. Keep me steadfast. Amen.
