God’s Powerful Promises for Your Family’s Back-to-School Days

by | Aug 19, 2019 | Women

It’s back-to-school time for many—a flurry of school supplies, schedule adjustments and, sadly, safety anxieties.
Will it be like last year?
Will be better?
In the midst of chaos, God’s promises are our best protection—His fidelity of faithfulness as armor—that surrounds us like a large shield, firmly affixed.
Psalm 91:4 (TPT) assures us, “His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.”
Therefore, back to school is a time of grace to pray, believe and receive God’s promises.
“This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—be convinced that you have received it and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24).
“And now out of his fullness we are fulfilled! And from him we receive grace heaped upon more grace” (John 1:16).
As we head into our new assignments of learning and growing, it’s good to know that we can experience God’s faithful assurance continually in our journey, beyond a single object or eventas we learn to trust Him at more of His truth.
This is where we grow our shield of faith.
So what’s to worry?
“Jesus replied, ‘You don’t understand yet the meaning of what I’m doing, but soon it will be clear to you'” (John 13:7).
We can always trust Him in this next level of opportunity process whereby He trains us, develops us, tests us and establishes us.
Stronger in Him.
Knowing Him more.
To better equip us to do what He called us to do in this life as our classroom, where our commitment to His character and ways are proven.
Therefore, God’s faithfulness is necessary for our victory.
Found in the armor of His blood covenant, God’s faithfulness is a battle strategy of running to Him, hiding in Him and receiving from Him to progress and finish our race by His strength, not ours.
His faithfulness is a post of revelation for reformation, perpetual truth that travels with us and a marker for excellence in the making. It is a place of support, a respite in our marathon and a divine task and object that guards us.
God’s faithfulness is always available as the armor that sustains us completely. When we believe and walk in the Spirit of truth, faith and grace, we can hold to our shield and watch His love for us unfold.
Beautifully.
No matter what.
It’s worth going back to. {eoa}
