As we are nearing the new year, many of us will be making promises to ourselves and to others. Many will be praying to God to help them keep and fulfill those promises. I think at this time, it is more important to get into your bibles and study God's Word and His promises. You can pray those promises and stand on those promises. He is faithful and will not go back on His word. When you know the promises of God, you can know the very strength He has given you to accomplish anything in His name.
O - God has been making promises to us since the beginning of time. This one speaks volumes. He brought us through whatever evil intended so that we could save others for Him.
A - I have been applying this promise since the death of my daughter. Evil would have loved for my husband and I to fall apart, but we relied totally on God and He brought us through. He enabled us to see and fulfill His promise. We will continue to minister to and present the Gospel through our testimony.
P - Father, I pray that I never forget that it was you that brought me through my worst of times. I pray that I am always able to turn anything that is evil or bad around so that I can find the good and usefulness from it. I want to always be able to present who Jesus is to others, regardless of the circumstances. Father, I thank you for your promises and your faithfulness.
