When we committed our lives to
God in return made a deep and abiding
commitment to us. In His Word we
see the unchanging nature of
" My unfailing love for you will
not be shaken nor my covenant
of peace be removed."
Jeremiah 31:3 "I have loved you
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
unto us exceeding great and precious
promises." the Greek meaning for the
word 'precious' in this verse is: costly,
valued at great price, esteemed,
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
and through he rivers, they shall
not overflow thee; when thou walkest
through the fire, thou shalt not
Neither shall the flame kindle
We also have the promise in
Romans 8:28 that He will work
everything to our good.
The Scriptures contain general
for all believers, as well as specific
one that speak to special needs.
When troubles threaten to
we must remember that God has
given us these promises to help us
through, and realize "that what
promised, He is able to perform."
God's promises are exceeding
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
FAITH IS BELIEVING THE
REVELATION OF GOD AND
THEN ACTING UPON IT!
