God’s Promises

Do you have any idea how many promises of God there are in the Bible? I don’t, but I always mark in my Bible when I find another one. I have a lot of those markings throughout my Bible. I’ve been thinking on a couple of His promises.

We know that God is steadfast and faithful. That’s what Deuteronomy 7:9 says. I Corinthians 1:9 says that God is faithful and II Timothy 2:15 says, “if we are faithless, He will remain faithful, for He cannot disown Himself.”
Because we know He is faithful, we can stand on the promises He gives us. He cannot lie so He cannot break His promises which are His solid word.

I find a great deal of comfort in that when my world takes an unexpected turn.

When we look at it with Romans 8:35, we see it says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” It goes on to say in verse 37-39 “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

I really believe when my health takes a nose dive again, when money runs short, when frustrations mount, when someone disappoints me, when the world has another catastrophe or the economy plummets again, He is there. He is with me. I don’t have to go through anything alone. Nothing can separate me from Him.

Either God is bigger than my problems and I go to Him with them or the problems are bigger than the God whom I serve and I crumble under the weight of them. I must stand on what He says is true. He is my rock and foundation. I need to remember that always. He promised He would be. He is as He said.

“Dear Lord God, Thank-You that You are more than enough and big enough to take care of any problem I have today. Thank-You that You are faithful to Your word and Your promises stand true.”

So, what do you do to keep yourself centered on the promises of God? What is your favorite of His promises?
