Living the Principle
God will never fail you and never
change His mind about the
promises He’s made.
What storm are you currently facing? Is trouble striking you like a tidal wave? Are you finding yourself disheartened by your situation?
If so, remember that God will never fail you, and He’ll never change His mind about the promises He’s made to you.
So this week when the crises come—and they will come—lay your heart out to God and ask for Hislove and comfort. Ask Him to show you His will and lead you to His message of encouragement.
But don’t stop there. Continue on by reading God’s Word and meditating on it every day this week. A good place to start is the book of Psalms, or, if you’re a new believer, the gospel of John. Ask godly friends what Scripture passages have been meaningful and inspiring to them. As you do this, the Lord will bring His Word to your mind at the moment you most need a reminder of His love and comfort.
His Word will serve as an anchor of strength, guidance, and comfort to keep you steady when the
waves of adversity rise. He will serve as a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.
How will you live out Life Principle 3 this week?
Discuss with a trusted Christian friend some ways that you can keep God’s Word as your anchor during difficult times. Talk about how the Bible has encouraged you and kept your focus on God in the past. Then spend time in prayer asking God to draw you into intimate communion with Himself and to transform your life so you can grow closer to Him and affect the world for the sake of His kingdom.
