Prescription of Promises

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  My friend Rika has been bedridden for ten years due to pain.  So, when she tells me something that gives her encouragement for the journey, I listen.  And not long ago, she sent me this quote by Charles Spurgeon: “In time of trouble, I like to find a promise which exactly fits my need, and then put my finger on it, and say, ‘Lord, this is thy word; I beseech thee to prove that it is so, by carrying it out in my case.’”  And then my friend Rika mentioned all the verses she puts her finger on… like the one in Isaiah that says God is with us and will uphold us with His right hand. Or Psalm 18 that says God is our rock and our fortress.  And the Psalm that says God is our ever-present help in trouble.  Oh friend, looking at God’s promises instead of my pain what a powerful prescription for when I hurt.  And the same is for you, as you put your finger on every promise of God.
