Are you able to lean on the Word of God? Listen as Susie shares more from her book, Your Beautiful Purpose. She unpacks how to have active faith, and what it looks like to build more trust into your walk with the Lord. God’s promises are always true, and we talk about how to walk in them.
It can be very tempting to “talk the talk” when you’ve grown up in the Church. But deep down, are you leaning on God’s promises, or are you just going through the motions because it’s what you’ve always done? God calls us to know Him, increasingly and intimately. In the book of Proverbs, we’re told to lean on Him and believe Him. There are several aspects of believing God that are key to a full Christ-centered life:
What it means, according to Psalm 46, to really “know” God
How to walk with honor and believe that God knows His plans for you
How to connect the character of God with the promises of God
What “an appetite for the impossible” is, and how to cultivate it in your faith
Many things in life are said to be “set in stone” – job offers, vacation plans, even marriage vows. When we put our weight on these things and they fail, we can question God’s goodness. The truth is, we can’t put our weight on those things because God doesn’t set them in stone. What does He set in stone? His faithfulness. His promise to never leave us. His power to continue sanctifying us in every season. When God prepares us for a calling, He doesn’t promise financial security or full health. He promises Himself – and we can believe Him.
