One of the greatest gifts that I have been given in my life is to be able to share my own story, how God even in the darkest moments, took my hand and walked with me.
In the last few years, however, there has been a shift inside me. I still believe in the power of sharing our stories with each other. They are the candles that we hold up in the darkness. But nothing will ever compare to the power of the Word of God. It is God's Word that has the power to hold us through the fiercest storms. It is God's Word that shows us how to live in a world that has largely turned it's back on our Father. It is God's Word that allows us to stand firm when everything else seems to be falling apart. That is why I have a renewed commitment to teach and write books that concentrate on going deeper into God's Word and learning what He has promised us.
In the course of my work with Women Of Faith, my daily journey, and living in community with other believers, I find that most of us are trying to make it through this life with inadequate resources. As I have weathered my own storms, God has brought me to a place where He has shown me the power of His promises. There are over 3,000 promises in the Bible, and as Paul writes to the Church in Corinth, "For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God." 2:10 (NIV)
All the promises of God find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ. In the atoning death of Christ, we see that God kept His most difficult promise of all, and He will never fail us.
For the very first time I have been given the opportunity of providing you with so much more than just a book. As well as my new book, "The Shelter Of God's Promises," I have developed and recorded a ten week DVD Bible study for churches and women's studies. It can also be used for individual study. I am so excited to make these available to you and to your church. And for the first time I've asked my publisher. Thomas Nelson, to release these books in paperback so they will be more cost-effective to you.
Let me close with just one of the ten promises covered in the book. This is found in one of the my favorite chapters in the New Testament, Romans 8: "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (38-39)
