The Promises of God:
The Word of God is full of amazing promises – each one speaking of His great faithfulness.
As we journey with the Lord, He also speaks personal promises to us as His beloved children.
Scriptures to meditate and ponder on:
2 Cor 1:20 “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.”
Psalm 85:8 “I will listen to what the Lord will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints – but let them not return to folly.”
2Peter 1:4 reminds us that we have been given these great and precious promises, so that through them we may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
I never tire of reading the account of Abraham in Romans 4:
20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,
21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Praise God that when you and I hold fast to our faith and are fully persuaded that God will do what he has promised, we too are credited with righteousness.
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.”
Thank you Jesus!
