Jesus’ birth was God’s fulfillment of his promises to Israel. We need remember how God fulfilled his word to his children in the days of old. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Therefore, God will also always keep his promises to you as his children.
What are God’s promises? Memorize them and in prayer remind him, not that God ever will forget.
However, as you pray you strengthen yourself:
“For I know the plans I have for you, say the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Matthew 11: 28-29
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Isaiah 40: 29-31
“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
Romans 8: 37-39
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loves us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels not demons, neither our fears for today not our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
