What’s so great about God’s promises?
You know what’s so great about God’s promises? No matter how hard you lean on them – they will never break! Scripture tells us that God never lies and He never changes. He is faithful and true and we can always count on Him with complete confidence. God’s timeless character is the source of our hope.
Starting July 19 and through the rest of the summer I will talk about how to find promises in God’s Word, what are the different types of promises, to whom were the promises made, do they apply to us today, and along the way find hope in the sure promises of God that we can count on no matter what.
God’s promises often say more about who He is or what He is doing than about a specific circumstance or outcome.
You are promised the certainty of God in and through our circumstances but not promises of the circumstances themselves. Remember, God uses the trials and pressure in our lives to sanctify us and make us more like His Son, Jesus Christ. He never promised our lives would be free from trouble – but He did promise He would never leave or forsake those who are called His children. Have you accepted God’s invitation to His family? Trusting Jesus Christ as your Savior is the beginning to a relationship with God.
“God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
You will see that when you experience hardship you can grow closer to the Lord. There is hope in your suffering and there is hope in your present and future with God!
