    God’s Promises

    Monday, December 19, 2022

    Life can be demanding and discouraging at times. Especially for those of us in ministry, because we are trying to balance family, church and life on top of trying to please everyone so many times.

    So often, we allow all “the stuff” to discourage us and we forget how much God loves us, especially during the busyness of the holidays. I want to remind you today of ten things God wants you to remember:

    Ten Things God Wants You to Remember

    1. I am for you.
    2. I love you.
    3. I believe in you.
    4. I will not fail you.
    5. I will be with you.
    6. I will provide for you.
    7. I will bless you
    8. I will give you rest.
    9. I will strengthen you.
    10. I will answer you.

    The Lord bless you and keep you. Numbers 6:24

    These are only 10 of God’s many promises. I pray you will claim these ten and when Satan is trying to discourage you, you will look back at these and claim His promises!

    Be determined to not allow the stress of ministry and the stress of Christmas to get you down and overwhelmed, but instead be still and rest in His promises and be encouraged!

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
