Great and Precious Promises by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/11/11

“We really felt like God wanted me to quit my job and focus on the needs of my family.“

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We all face moments of surrender to God’s will.

“We’re here in this new city where I don’t know anybody. I know God wants us to be here, but I feel so lonely.”

Nancy: When Abraham left everything behind to follow God, all he had to hold on to were the promises God had given him for children and land. For 25 years, Abraham never saw any evidence that the promise would be fulfilled. Sometimes we’re called to persevere like that.

“I never expected marriage to be this hard.”

Nancy: Second Peter says we have “exceeding great and precious promises.” Like Abraham, when things look bleak, we can cling to those promises. If you’re struggling to persevere, encourage your heart with the promises of God. And remind yourself that God always keeps His word.
