Replace Your Fears With Faith
By Rick Warren
— January 11, 2013
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22–23 (NIV)
God supplies more and more and more of his love today, tomorrow, and forever. The prophet Jeremiah says God’s merciful love never fails. His love is like a bottomless cup of coffee served fresh every morning.
ojo0iu89Since God’s compassion starts fresh every morning, you will never reach a point where his love runs out. This means you can never blow it so bad that God will abandon you. He is the God-of-second-chances. If you’re uncertain that God can (or has) forgiven you for things you did in the past, ask him to help you replace your fears with faith.
Talk about it –
God will make it so. The Hebrew word for faithfulness is related to the word amen, which means “so be it.” When you close a prayer with amen, you’re quite literally acknowledging that God is faithful to make it so. How will your prayers change now that you know God will make it so?
