Here are a few scriptures to remind you that you are not alone and that God is always working on your behalf to bring you the very best!
With men it is impossible, but with God ALL THINGS are possible. (Mark 10:27)
Dont lose faith. Nothing is too difficult for the God that created the heavens and the earth! Nothing stumps Him - especially not your child support situation, your financial problems or your lingering loneliness. God can do all things and fix all things! All you need is faith!
Believe ye that I am able to do this? ... According to your FAITH be it unto you. (Matt. 9:28)
The fulfillment of the promises is largely related to our faith. We must believe that God is and that He is the rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Weve got to trust, know, and believe with our whole hearts that God is able to meet all of our needs!
My soul wait thou only upon God: for my expectation is from him. (Ps. 62:5)
Our jobs are great, our bosses sign our checks, but God is the one who brings our resources resources! We have to keep our expectations focused on Him. He, not the president of your company, brings our increase. Hes the one that brings eternal fulfillment and happiness - not your boyfriend and not the husband you so desperately desire - only Jesus!
What's more, I will be with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. I will someday bring you safely back to this land. I will be with you constantly until I have finished giving you everything I have promised." (Gen 28:15) (from the New Living Translation)
How rich is that promise! God will protect you and bring you to where you are most comfortable! This scripture is about restoration. God will restore those things that were taken away from you - your peace, your trust, your joy. Hell bring you back to where you want to be! Have faith!
Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy. Isaiah 61:7 (from the New Living Translation)
Divorce and separation can be devastating. Often we feel dishonored, useless and full of shame. God doesnt want you to stay there! He wants you to have so much joy that you cant express it with words and full of glory! For the pain you are enduring now, stay faithful and he will give you a double portion of prosperity and eternal joy! He promised!
Impossible for God to lie! (Heb. 6:18)
Speaking of which, it is impossible for God to lie. What He promised, He will make it happen. He cannot mislead you. Its not in His nature. It simply wont happen. So feel comfortable trusting Him and relying on Him during this season in your life and for always. Hes faithful and just and wont leave you disappointed.
