Good morning everyone near and far away, especially in Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
Has God given you a promise? Are you familiar with prophecy? God wants to show His love to us and to show he cares and has life for us on the earth and in heaven. Life can change for you here and now.
I read the Bible and I hold on to what the word of God says. For example on page 1 it says increase and multiply and fill the earth. I believe in prophecy. It is from prophetic words I believed and hoped in that I am alive. It is from prophetic words and dreams God guided Brendan and I through the storms of life.
Men of old believed what God promised them. Abraham received the promise of a son. He was 100 years old when the son was born. Joseph had a dream his family would bow down to him. The dream came through after many testing times of being a slave and being in prison. David became a King after being chased from his country and lived in caves.
Believing for the promises God gives takes patience and endurance. God sends encouragement along the way to help us not to give up. I had cancer and was giving up hope of God answering my prayers. But God is faithful. He kept his promises to me. I am alive. I have since seen promises come to me but there are more promises to be fulfilled.
I’m watching programmes on iplayer about trawlermen. They are fishermen. They go out in bad weather and expect to catch fish and bring the bounty of the deep home. They don’t give up. They have faith to catch the fish they believe are there.
I am learning from them. I was reading Hebrews 6 v 19 NLV
Believing in God’s promise is like an anchor that keeps the soul through the storms of life that try to abort one’s promise. Remain anchored in faith in Jesus. He is attached to your anchor. He is with you till you come to safe grounds.
I am very encouraged by Hebrews 6 v 19 today. I am anchored in God. I will see His promises come to me in this life on the earth. I shall not die. I shall live and proclaim the Word of God.
Don’t give up. Don’t get shipwrecked!!!
