Believing God

A study of the lives of four Old Testament women

The God of Every Story

Editor’s Note: Today we’re wrapping up our Believing God in Unwanted Circumstances study with reading and/or listening to Psalm 34, and we’re sharing this final post in the series. We hope you’ve been encouraged and challenged by this study and the words our writers have shared. Stay tuned for Abiding, our next study, which will begin next week!

Getting in the Ring with God

Editor’s Note: Today we’re reading and/or listening to 1 Samuel 1:24-28 and Psalm 4 in our Believing God in Unwanted Circumstances series. We offer you this reflection on Hannah, the Old Testament woman we’re spending time learning from this week, with hopes that it will encourage you in the often long and emotional journey of submission to God’s good and perfect will.

A Job Well Done

Editor’s Note: Today we’re reading and/or listening to Psalm 147:5, Jeremiah 32:17-27, and Matthew 8:23-27 as part of our look at the life of Deborah. After you read, we offer you this post by Jasmine Timm, our second post on this remarkable woman of faith. We hope you are encouraged today!

Influencers for God’s Kingdom

Editor’s Note: Today we’re reading Judges 4:4-10 and Daniel 2:20-23, and as we study the life of Deborah, may this reflection encourage you that no matter where you are God is ready to use you for His glory.

How to Have Faith in an Age of Proof Seeking

Editor’s Note: Today in our series Believing God in Unwanted Circumstances, we encourage you to first read or listen to Hebrews 11:6 and 31 and James 2:14-26. Then, after pausing in these rich verses from God’s Word, we offer you this post about Rahab and her life of faith as additional encouragement and challenge concerning the truths you’ve studied this week.

Gossiping for God’s Glory

Editor’s Note: Today, as you read or listen to Joshua 2:8-14, Deuteronomy 4:39, and Ephesians 2:8-9, we hope this reflection piece will remind you of the importance of being a witness for God’s glory.

God Sees the Details of My Story

Editor’s Note: Today, as you read or listen to Psalm 23, we hope this reflection piece from Sarah Lloyd reminds you of the incredible character of our God.

The God Who Sees Me

Today, as you read Genesis 16:7-15 and Psalm 27:11-14 or take a listen as part of Day 2 for Believing God in Unwanted Circumstances, we hope this reflection piece from Jasmine Timm encourages you.

Believing God in Unwanted Circumstances

The year 2020 is one that we will not soon forget. Given the pandemic and all that has come with it, many of us have found ourselves in circumstances we did not want or did not expect. We will find we are not alone in the feeling that we are trapped or our situation is hopeless as we read together the stories of four Old Testament women.
