God’s Promises

It’s wonderful to be reminded of God’s promises to His children. It’s wonderful sometimes to really think about what each promise means to us and how it impacts our lives. It’s wonderful to know God never breaks a promise and He is always faithful.

There are so many things in life to bring us down. Some struggle financially. Some struggle with sickness. Some struggle with depression. Some struggle with cruelty from other people. Some live in situations that are horrible. Some worry constantly. Some live in their own misery. Some live in fear. However, the worst of all is that some live without God.

They know nothing of faith, hope, and love. They don’t have the scriptures alive in their heart. They don’t have the promise of a better day. Regardless of what I go through, I know that nothing can separate me from the love of God. I know that He will supply my ever need. I know during my times of sorrow He will comfort me. I know that I’m never alone. I know when I cry out from my heart, He will hear me and answer accordingly—in His time. I know God’s love is my shield and my salvation.

I know that my God loves me with an unexplainable love. He loved me so much that He gave His Son a ransom for my sins. He knows I will fail—daily, and yet He loves me anyway. He doesn’t make me earn His love. There are no conditions or ways to lose it. It’s mine, forever!

God’s love defeats my enemies. It gives me strength, when all my strength is gone. It sets me a mile in front of the devil and hides me in the cliff of the rock. It gives me faith. It gives me hope. It gives me forgiveness to receive and to offer. It gives me comfort. It gives me everything I need to make it through this life.

Worry is nothing more than unbelief. It’s like saying, God I don’t think you can take care of me or my situation. Faith is the opposite of worry. It believes the promises God made to us. It knows that He is always merciful and longsuffering. It knows that God has plans to prosper us and not harm us. It knows that His ways are not our ways. It knows that worry changes absolutely nothing. While faith changes everything.

Through faith I believed in God and was saved. Through faith I learned to accept myself. Through faith I learned how to follow the voice of my Lord and to succumb to His will. Through faith I learned to trust my Lord and His amazing promises.

There is no trouble, problem, or situation too great for God. He knows all about me and loves me anyway. God blesses us all with an abundance of blessings daily. Sometimes we just need to reflect on our life and remember, He is the one who holds our next breath in His hands. At any moment He could call us home. No one has the promise of tomorrow. However, God does offer all the promise of Eternal Life. It’s up to you if you want god’s amazing gift. Everyday my salvation gets a little sweeter as I realize more about my wonderful God.
