A Promise from God

Max Lucado in his book Unshakable Hope – Building our lives on the Promises of God says that we can rely on God because his promises towards us will stand.  I asked the Lord to show me a promise that he has for us.  The next morning I was reading an email from The Institute for Creation Research and they spoke of Following Righteousness.  “Follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22.  They went on to say the word “follow” is translated “persecute” and if anyone wants to serve the Lord Jesus faithfully they must be determined to pursue righteousness.  This is were the promise comes in.  Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful God is!  He heard my prayer and showed me a promise in his word.  If we pursue God, he will meet us where we are.  We have this promise and many more that we can stand on in our daily lives.
