The Promise Box - Week 8, Saturday

God is worthy of your trust

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: To the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as one day. The Lord is not slow to do what he promised--the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and live. 2 Peter 3:8-9, NCV.

The Promise Box - Week 8, Sunday

The Promise Box Inspiration - God is worthy of your trust

Let us come close to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, because we have been made free from a guilty conscience, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. Let us hold firmly to the hope that we have confessed, because we can trust God to do what he promised. Hebrews 10:22-23, NCV.

Your hope in God is based upon nothing but his promises to you. That is the strength of your hope, because it is in God that you trust. As economic systems falter, causing people to lose their confidence in the failing institutions they have long trusted for financial security, the hope they had for a secure future withers on the vine of despair. But you do not have to despair or worry because God is faithful, and you have the confidence that he will keep his promises.
