​Topic: Step Five in Crisis: Thank God for His Love and Promises – Saturday, November 11th, 2017.

“O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands” (Daniel 9:4b NLT).

You can’t do anything more important than pray during a crisis. As we’ve been learning, Daniel 9 gives us a great pattern for prayer as you walk through life’s toughest times.

We’ve already learned to:

  • Let God speak to us before we speak to him.
  • Focus our attention on God and seek him.
  • Express our desires with passion.
  • Demonstrate our seriousness.

We also must thank God for his love and promises.

Daniel describes this in Daniel 9:4b: “O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands” (NLT).

This may be the last thing you want to do during a crisis. You may be angry with God and frustrated at him. But that’s why you need to do this. You need a perspective change.

A few verses later, we read this: “The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him” (Daniel 9:9 NLT).

We should be grateful that God is faithful even when we’re not. God keeps his promises every time.

And God will continue keeping them in your crisis. He won’t abandon you. Show God you realize that. Let him know you trust him.

It’s an important part of a prayer that God will always answer during a crisis.
