“The Promises of God to His people!”

A promise from God is a statement we can depend on with absolute confidence. Here are 12 promises for the Christian to claim.

God’s presence“I will never leave thee” (Heb. 13:5)

God’s protection“I am thy shield” (Gen. 15:1)

God’s power“I will strengthen thee” (Isa. 41:10)

God’s provision“I will help thee” (Isa. 41:10)

God’s leading“And when He puts forth His own sheep, He goes before them” (John 10:4)

God’s purposes“I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil” (Jer. 20:11)

God’s rest“Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28)

God’s cleansing — “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9)

God’s goodness“No good thing will He withhold from them that work uprightly” (Psalm 84:11)

God’s faithfulness“The Lord will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake” (1 Sam. 12:22)

God’s guidance“The meek will He guide” (Psalm 25:9)

God’s wise plan“All things work together for good to them that love God” (Rom. 8:28)

Oh, the promises of God for His people are wonderful and a solid rock on which we can stand!  A promise is only as good as the character of the one stating it.  With that said, you can swing high on the rope of the promises from our Lord over any fearful and deep pit of your life!   But the promises for those that are not the people of God are many also and they are for sure also.  For example: “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”   

My dear reader, which rope are you swinging on?  Pastor Mark
