Don’t Doubt The Promises Of God

1 Kings 8:56
56 “Praise the Lord who has given rest to his people Israel, just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the wonderful promises he gave through his servant Moses.

Do you doubt the promises of God often?

When you do not see a shift in the direction God promised to take you, it oftentimes is difficult to trust the promises He has made. The promises that He made in His word and through the Holy Spirit. 

In this 8th chapter of 1 Kings, Solomon dedicates the temple that the Lord promised King David He would build through one of His sons. King Solomon was the son to fulfill that promise. 

During the temple dedication, Solomon stands with a loud voice and blesses the congregation of Israel. 

He praises the Lord for His goodness toward Israel. God has given rest to them as He promised he would. Also, he goes on to say that God’s word has never failed. Every promise God made through Moses has not returned void. 

I want to encourage you not to give up on God’s promises. If God can bring to pass a promise he made to David, He will fulfill the promise He made to you. 

If God can deliver on His promises to the people of Israel, He can do the same for you. God works on His timing. It’s timing we often don’t understand. But, in His timing, He can build, deliver, heal, forgive, and so much more. 

I challenge you to transform your doubts into solid rock faith that believes in God’s every promise. Don’t get caught up in the timing of things and the lies Satan will whisper to you as you wait. Believe in the substance of things hoped for and for the unseen God has promised you. 

Take hold of the very same rest that God gave the people of Israel. Sit back and watch every promise He has made come to pass. 

Prayer this week:

Dear God,

Thank you for being so faithful! There isn’t a promise that you have ever made that has returned undone or void. Father, help me to remain in faith. The wait may not be easy, but I humbly ask for your strength to persevere. 

In Jesus Name,
