Morning Coffee - He has Promised!

"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises." 2 Pet. 1:4
When a shipwright builds a vessel, does he build it to keep it upon the stocks? Nay, he builds it for the sea and the storm. When he was making it, he thought of tempests and hurricanes; if he did not, he was a poor shipbuilder.

When God made thee a believer, He meant to try thee; and when He gave thee promises, and bade thee trust them, He gave such promises as are suitable for times of tempest and tossing.
O man, I beseech you do not treat God's promises as if they were curiosities for a museum; but use them as every day sources of comfort. Trust the Lord whenever your time of need comes on.--C. H. Spurgeon

Can God say no to something He has promised?

Time to refill my cup and claim those precious promises for today!



  1. As I read those words, I thought about all the storms one encounters in life. And, I thought about Peter who walked on water until he looked down. When he walked by faith, he was bouyed... when he tried to walk by sight, well, down he went!

    Here's to looking up in faith and trusting where our footfalls lead!

    Sending you lots of good thoughts today!

  2. Beautiful words... beautiful reminder!

    Enjoy your second cup... I'm just going to brew another for me and hubby too!

  3. Wonderful reminder for all the why me-ers Sandy! You two are in my prayers today and every day.

  4. I can't say thank you enough for all the prayers sent our way!!! It means so much to our family. We have no idea what the future holds for us right now but we do know that, encouraged and strengthened by the prayers of others, we are able to put our trust in God.
