A Promise

"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised." Hebrews 10:35,36

I love the promises that God gives us in His word. I claim them for myself and Kris as we're trying to teach our boys God's ways. I believe that when we "have done the will of God" by following the Spirit's instruction to us, we "will receive what He has promised." I believe that when our boys are grown, they will follow the way of the Lord, loving Him with all of their heart and every ounce of passion in them, choosing Him and His ways FIRST. I believe that no words of life that we have spoken and will speak over their lives will ever be wasted. I believe God's promises to me. I believe.

Amen, I'm in agreement with you. Speak those words of life into those boys with confidence and expectation for the God of the universe to fulfill His promises! He will be faithful to complete the work He has begun in Luke and Eli!! Whoo hoo!! I'm excited!!

Strengthening ourselves in the Lord is key. I sometimes think that it is one of the main keys b/c if we can hold on in encouragement until our promises appear then we have won the battle!
