We have all made promises we couldn’t and didn’t keep, but thankfully God has never done so. God doesn’t forget His promises, or take them back. His promises are also timeless, they have no expiry date. What was promised in the Hebrew scriptures and the New Testament are still valid today.
As believers in Christ, it is important to remember the promises God has made to us. Jesus made sure to remind those who heard him speak, that God fulfills His word; Jesus was mindful of that throughout his short ministry on earth. Jesus stayed focused on the mission he was called to complete and on the promises of God our father.
In our daily lives we are called to remember the promises God made to us. When we sin and ask for forgiveness, when we feel doubt about our salvation, when we don’t feel qualified in our calling, whenever we doubt any of God’s word; he calls us to trust and believe in Him. Mindfulness is important for keeping these promises in our mind and our heart. Without focusing on His word we can easily fall into the trap of self-doubt.
Self-doubt is rooted in doubting God. When you doubt yourself, you are doubting what God is capable of doing in and through you.
What has God promised you…
Luke 18:27 “What is impossible with man, is possible with God.”
1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
Bibleinfo.com has a list with different promises of God, I highly recommend reviewing them and using them in your meditation practice. Be mindful of when doubt and fear are entering your mind; address them with the promises of God.
Choose one or two promises of God. If you can memorize it, if not, then record it somewhere visible and read the verse aloud when you feel fear and doubt entering your mind. It is also good to be aware of your physical symptoms that represent doubt and fear.
