When I started a fast 14 days ago, I put these six post-it notes on my mirror with scriptures I thought I might want to refer to from time to time during the fast.
Instead they have become promises upon which I know I can place my hope as I walk – what seems to be blindly most days – seeking God and hoping for His will in our life.
I am so thankful for God’s promises (and sticky-notes).
The verses are…
The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
He is your constant source of stability.
He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom to all who fear Him.
I wil instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.
The Lord is my strength and my shield
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.
Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all I can think or imagine according to the power that is working inside of me. To Him be all the glory now and forever in Christ Jesus.
My soul finds rest in God alone,
my salvation come from Him.
He alone is my Rock and my Salvation.
He is my Fortress, I will never be shaken.
