PROMISES COMMITTED
By: Shirley
When we committed our lives to
Jesus Christ,
    God in return made a deep and abiding
commitment to us. In His Word we
 see the unchanging nature of
His commitment.
Isaiah :31:3
" My unfailing love for you will
not be shaken nor my covenant
of peace be removed."
Jeremiah 31:3  "I have loved you
 with an
everlasting love, I have drawn you
with loving kindness."
God desires that we be secure
      and confident in His commitment to us,
  so that 'we who have fled to
take hold of
the hope offered us may be greatly
encouraged.'  ( Hebrews 6:18 )
Because  o God's love and
commitment, we are His special
concern. As such,
 we are 'heirs' to God's promises.
The Scriptures literally abound with
 promises, demonstrating tangible
 evidence of God's love, concern, and
protection. Promises to meet every
 need and fit each circumstance.
2 Peter 1:4 says..."whereby
are given
 unto us exceeding great and precious
   promises." the Greek meaning for the
     word  'precious' in this verse is: costly,
valued at great price, esteemed,
dear.
The promises of God will often
come home to us in peculiar power
and sweetness as we
 study the Scriptures. They will also
be of invaluable help to us as
we try to be obedient
in times of difficulty.
Isaiah 43:2 ..." When thou passeth
through the waters, I will be
with thee;
and through he rivers, they shall
  not overflow thee; when thou walkest
through the fire, thou shalt not
be burned.
Neither shall the flame kindle
upon thee."
We also have the promise in
Romans 8:28 that He will work
 everything to our good.
The Scriptures contain general
promises
 for all believers, as well as specific
 one that speak to special needs.
When troubles threaten to
overwhelm,
 we must remember that God has
 given us these promises to help us
 through, and realize "that what
He has
promised, He is able to perform."
 (Romans 4:21)
God's promises are exceeding
great and
precious. And, as
2 Corinthians so aptly puts it:
" For all the promises of God
are yea, and in Him
amen, unto the glory of God
by us."
 

FAITH IS BELIEVING THE
REVELATION OF GOD AND
THEN ACTING UPON IT!
