Because of God's Promises... Today Is Your Best Day (Part 1)

Today Is Your Best Day... Because of God's Promises (Part 1)

They are the people of Israel, chosen to be God's adopted children. God revealed his glory to them. He made covenants with them and gave his law to them. They have the privilege of worshiping him and receiving his wonderful promises. Romans 9:4 NLT

You have so much going for you today, because so much has been given to you by God. You have the fullness of His grace, the bounty of His mercies, the  greatness of His power, the beauty of His presence, and the wonders of His love. You have been blessed with the fellowship of other believers, the revelation of the sacred scriptures, the daily intercession of Jesus Christ, the watchful ministry of heavenly angels, and you have been given the precious promises spoken from the heart of God.

God's promises are like golden apples given to you in baskets of silver, providing a treasure of priceless worth. They are like an oasis that you've found in the desert, bordered with lush, date-bearing palm trees, and surrounded by pools of pristine water. They are like a feast offered to you on the banqueting table of the King, loaded with fresh bread, the finest wine, food fixed to perfection, and desserts that are a delight to taste.


Any promise that is made to you is only as reliable as the character of the one who made it. People can promise many things that they are unable or unwilling to do. God is not like that. Every promise that He has made is sure and certain. God's promises are completely reliable because God is completely dependable. The God who created all there is, stands behind all He has promised.

God's promises are true because God cannot lie. Truth is part of God's nature and character. God doesn't only know truth or have truth, He is Truth. God never wavers between "yes" and "no" when it comes to fulfilling His promises. In Jesus Christ, God has already said yes to every promise He has made.

God has given you His promises because He wants you to know what is in His heart for you today.

If you have tears today, there are promises of comfort;
If you have heaviness, there are promises of joy;
If you are in need of direction, there are promises of guidance;

If you need to make an important decision, there are promises of wisdom; 
If you have doubts, there are promises of assurance;
If you are facing trials, there are promises of victory; 
If you are in sin, there are promises of cleansing and forgiveness; 
If you are in sickness, there are promises of healing;
If you are in conflict, there are promises of peace.

God's promises not only assure you that He will give you all that is best today, but that His best will also be a glorious part of your future.

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!).

I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
