God did not promise us that life would always be full of rainbows and sunshine after we made the decision to ask him into our hearts, but he did make us promises that he provided in his word, that are found in the good ole’ B-I-B-L-E. I am reminded of a song I use to sing as a kid, the B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me, I stand upon the word of God, the B-I-B-L-E. It is so simple that even a child could understand. So why do we make things so difficult? Why do we tend to go to our best friends, families or even pastors for all of the answers, when we can simply apply the word to our own lives? As you begin reading your bible, you will become closer to our Lord and savior. You will notice things that use to bother you, no longer bother you. You will notice changes within yourself that you could not change on your own. You will have freedom from the chains of bondage that have kept you down and defeated! The chains will be broken!!!! The promises of God are unfailing, powerful and life changing. The promises of God start with 2 Timothy 3:16, when he tells us that all scriptures are inspired by him.
2 Timothy 3:16– All scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
It is written plainly in God’s word that every scripture was breathed out by God himself. What a wonderful promise to us! But the good news is that God’s promises do not end there. In the bible, there are thousands of promises. I will be sharing below some of my go to scriptures about God’s promises. Anything that you face in your daily life you can overcome by reading, praying and applying God’s word to that problem. Your issue may be an addiction, financial issues, recovering from a lost marriage, grief, holding onto hurts, depression, anxiety, and there are much more. But you get the idea. The word of God has the answer that you are waiting for. God will always provide a way to guide you, you just have to lean on him and learn to trust and obey his word. Here is a list of some of my favorite scriptures about God’s promises to us. We serve a good God that is for sure!
Isaiah 40:31 –but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 54:17 – no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Deuteronomy 31:8 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.”
Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
I pray today that you stand on the promises of God and apply these scriptures to your life. As I have said many times, you are not alone! We all need reminders of God’s promises. He has never failed me yet, so I will praise him for all my days. Have a very blessed week and thanks for reading!
