Promises of Great Worth

Through His shining-greatness and perfect life, 
He has given us promises of great worth 
and no amount of money can buy them. 
2 Peter 1:4
God has given us great and precious promises.
He asks us to hold them as treasure
and when the times of testing come,
He asks that we trust Him to keep His word.
I don't want to be one who waits 
and watches His promises get fulfilled
only to say afterward, "I knew He would do it."
I want to be one who continually rehearses,
"His promises are true and I trust Him."
Especially when they look the least true.
God, You are my help, my comfort, my peace.
I have all I need.
Your promises are treasures of great worth.
I will cling to them and trust You.
I hold on to Your word:
I will declare You be true 
and everything that sets itself up 
against that knowledge to be a lie.
As You said in Your word,
Abraham believed God,
I want You to say of me:
So, also, did she believe.
