Learn the promises you can stand on!

We serve a God that allows us to hold Him to His promises. Though God doesn’t promise we will have all our greeds cared for, He does assure us that we can trust Him for our daily needs and for so many other promises found in His Word. In order to be able to do this, however, we have to know what His promises are. We have to read our Bibles and become familiar with those things we can count on from our Heavenly Father.

I want to draw your attention to just a few today. When you search through your Bible, you will find that there are just too many to list them all here. But I want to give you just a taste of some of the things, that we who are followers of Christ can count on!

Let’s start with one most of us know off by heart… 

SALVATION:

John 3:16 NIV 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

ONGOING FORGIVENESS THROUGHOUT OUR LIFETIME:

1 John 1:9 NIV 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

PEACE:

Philippians 4:6-7 NIV 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

ASSURANCE THROUGH ANY SITUATION:

Romans 8:28 NIV 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

And finally….

THE KNOWLEDGE WE WILL NEVER BE ABANDONED!

Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV 8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

These are just a few of the hundreds of promises from God found in our Bibles. Take the time to search them out and memorize them. Learn what we can stand on! His Words are truth and He does not lie!

Happy searching!

  1. As a child I often watched my mother study the Bible. She was a complex person who faced many many struggles in her life. When she overcame she did so because of God’s Word. She once told me that if I read the Bible, the words in it would change me. Although she was a woman of many talents she had a deep reverence for God’s Word. She believed that God’s Word invokes His reality. She spoke His Word into my life. To speak God’s Word out of conviction is to speak His Will not only in our lives but into the world. I think this is one of the major reasons why God’s Word and His Holy Bible is so suppressed by the princes of this world.
