Promises, Promises!

What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? Not all all! (Romans 3:3-4)

The more time we spend in the Word of God, the more familiar we become with His promises. The evil one works relentlessly to sow seeds of doubt in our minds, particularly when we are wavering in our walk, to cause us to shrink back from pressing into God’s promises and living the life God is calling us to live. But today’s passage makes one thing perfectly clear: Nothing we do can nullify any of the thousands of promises God has made to His people.

Here are just a few verses from both the Old and New Testaments to encourage you today. God has promised . . .

To be near us when we pray – Deuteronomy 4:7

To be with us wherever we go – Joshua 1:9

To be our peace – Judges 6:24

To turn our darkness into light – 2 Samuel 22:29

To fill our dry valleys with water – 2 Kings 3:16

To direct our steps – Proverbs 3:6

To bind up our wounds – Hosea 6:1

To be our refuge in times of trouble – Nahum 1:7

To make us fishers of men – Matthew 4:19

To give us rest – Matthew 11:28

To give us the Holy Spirit – John 14:16

To take us to be with Him – John 14:3

Remember, what God has promised, God will do. He assures us, “What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do” (Isaiah 46:11). God has never broken a promise in the past, and He is not about to start now. Look to the promises of God, and let them propel you into His perfect plan and purpose for your imperfect life.

This is the Gospel.  This is grace for your race.  NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
