To my faithful readers,

I am on a brief sabbatical completing a manuscript for a new book. Please browse the archive and pray that the Lord will bless the work that I am doing to bless others. I will resume the Promise Box in a few weeks. Feel free to send me a response at

God bless,
The Berean

The Promise Box - Week 9, Saturday

God is your hope

The LORD made an agreement with Jacob and gave the teachings to Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children. Then their children would know them, even their children not yet born. And they would tell their children. So they would all trust God and would not forget what he had done but would obey his commands. Psalm 78:5-7, NCV.

God has an agreement with you. If you continue to trust him and remember to share your testimony of his faithfulness with others, he will draw them to himself, and so you would become a coworker with him in the salvation of countless souls. You.

The Promise Box - Week 9, Friday

God is your hope

Let those who respect you rejoice when they see me, because I put my hope in your word. I am weak from waiting for you to save me, but I hope in your word. Support me as you promised so I can live. Don't let me be embarrassed because of my hopes. I am waiting for you to save me, LORD. I will obey your commands. Psalm 119: 74, 81, 116, 166, NCV.

When you put your hope in God, do so with abandon. Trust him for your sustenance just as the animals of the field depend upon him. God will honor your hope in him and present you as an example of his bountiful favor. Others will see his blessings upon your life and glorify him.
