This lovely Bible study, from The Daily Grace Co., traces the promises of God from Genesis to Revelation. It traces the story that God is writing through covenant promises to His children. This study walks through the story of Scripture through the lens of the covenants and reminds us that God has always been faithful and we can be confident that He will be faithful in our lives as well.
If you loved the Amen Bible study, this study is for you! It is the perfect study for digging even deeper into the story of redemption. This book is 8x10. It is 159 pages long.
Faith Over Fear
We all have surprises throughout our lifetimes. Some are joyful and some bring sorrow, but true of all of life’s surprises, they change us. My latest life-changing surprise came in the form of sickness.
I am now considered in remission. My hair is growing back—although I still wear a hat or wig. There are still side effects from the chemo, but nothing worth complaining about. God chose to heal me and leave me on this earth for a while longer. I do not believe He is finished with me yet.
Here are 5 things I learned about cancer on my journey:
Once you have had cancer, there is a chance of it returning. The doctor said if mine returns it would more likely do so within the first two years. One Sunday when I was home alone watching our Sunday service, I had a “Jacob wrestling with God” moment. I was fearful about the future and hesitant to say I was healed.
God gave me 3 verses from His Word that day:
Fear is real, but my faith must be stronger. I still occasionally review verse cards that were given to me by friends during my time of sickness. Many are “fear not” verses like Isaiah 43:13,
“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”
It can be a strong fight between fear and faith, and I have had to pray many times, “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
Did my life’s surprise change me? You bet it did! Every day I must continue to choose faith over fear realizing God has left me here for His work and for His glory.
