Our confidence is higher when it is not only in ourselves but also in what we’ve been promised by one who never fails. #WeWillGetThere
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13, 14 KJV)
Positive Practice 106: Have you ever experienced that utter feeling of disappointment when someone who has made a promise to you fails to come through at the crucial moment?
It is very upsetting and cripples trust in other people.
It is important however to know that the success of your life is not only dependent on you and on what others will possibly fail to do for you or on what you can do for yourself.
We must be free from fear of failure because we have insurance and assurance that at the right time, in the right way, what we need will be provided to get us there, to the place of success. We are sure of the promises that confirm that what we yearn for and seek after will inevitably be delivered. That challenges in the now should not faze us. Why?
Because we have been guaranteed by one we know can never fail that victory will be ours.
God is not a man that he should lie. Has he said it? Then it will surely come to pass irrespective of how weak or unqualified we feel in ourselves in the now. He has guaranteed his promises in our lives by leaving a deposit, a pre or foretaste of it in our hearts by his Spirit.
We know deep down that God is with us and if he is with us now then whatever he has promised will surely come to pass. We therefore can face today and tomorrow confidently. His promises never fail.
