Finding Strength in the Strength of God. We should remind ourselves of a specific promise God has made, fix our minds on it, put our faith in it, and then say to God, “I believe you; help my unbelief. Increase my faith in this promise. I’m trusting you, Lord. Here I go.” Then act.

I wanted to list these 10 promises I found that are great to memorize:

1. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

2. “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:10

3. “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will about in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

4. “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6

5. “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” Psalm 84:11

6. “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32

7. “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6

8. “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

9. “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

10. “and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” Psalm 50:15

Never cease to ponder Paul’s words, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

Not I. Yet I. By Faith
(J Piper)
