Without prayer, we will never get to know the promise-keeping side of God. In order to know our Promise-Keeper, we’ve got to interact with Him. Pray to Him. And more than just pray, pray His promises … His Word … back to Him.
Now more than ever Christians must know what the Word of God says. We won’t learn what He says through browsing social media and letting someone else do our Bible studying for us, regurgitating their version of the Word (and, yes, that even includes this blog and all of the writers here at Real Women). It is so very vital we become students of Jesus, asking Him to sit with us daily and show us Himself in the Word.
Although our struggles in America, as real and as important as they are, can in no way compare to the suffering of Christians around the world, all of us can find comfort in the Word of God given through Peter in this letter.
God is worthy of our worship because He is our LIVING HOPE – alive and actively participating in bringing help into desperate situations.
God could have given up on us, turned His back and walked away. But instead He gave; gave all He had to give. He risked it all on the Cross in the hope that one day we would say “Yes” to Him.
God is the same today as He has always been. His promises do not change. If His Word has promised something, then it is still a promise to day.
Continually dwelling in His Word and presence will help us prevent being depleted and working in our own strength.
