We may know the promises of God, but what happens when we believe them? When we truly rest and live in the promises of God, how is life different?

 

Worry Decreases

 

When we believe a promise, we don’t have to worry about it anymore.

 

For so many people, they know the promises God has for them, of hope, a future, restoration, and peace and yet they still worry. God has told us very specific promises in scripture and when we believe them, they shouldn’t be things we worry about. God promises to give us purpose and joy from our suffering. Yet for so many, when we suffer, we do nothing but worry about what may come from it.

 

God promises to care for us and give us all our needs. Yet, so many of us worry as if we may not be taken care or we may go without. We stress the economy, world events, and elections as if God’s promises are true in any outcome.

 

When we learn to believe the promises of God, we find that the list of things we worry about gets a great deal shorter.
Couldn’t you stand to get rid of some of the worry in your life? Find the way to lean on the things God has promised us.
