7.24.15 Have you ever thought about the promises of God?
There is power in the promises of God, sometimes it feels like it may take a while to figure out that whatever happened, happened for our good. Remember no matter what your going through you are never alone because God is always with you. Let's look at a few of God's promises. After we look at them claim them for your own.
The Promise of Eternal Life
John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
God Will Supply Your Needs
Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Thank about that God will supply every need, yes it said need not want. Don't get me wrong God will let you have things you desire from time to time but He makes sure you have everything you need.
You Are Not Alone, God Is With You
Matthew 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
So who else do you know is going to be with you till the end? Yes of course you may have a friend that may be there for you, but God will be there with you for eternity.
God Will Give You Strength
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
God’s Grace Is Sufficient For Us
2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
God Will Provide A Way Out of Temptations In Your Life
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
God will help you with your temptation if you just let Him. If you feel tempted to do something that you know you shouldn't just ask God to take it away from you. I remember years ago I use to curse, I decided if I was going to follow God then I needed to clean my language up. So I decided to ask God to take it away from me and guess what He did. So if you have a problem with something just go to God and give it to Him.
Nothing Can Separate Us From The Love of God
Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This is just a few promises of God I thought I'd share with you. There are a bunch of promises in the Bible. I just want to ask you has someone ever promised you something or promised you they'd do something for you? Well sometimes those promises got broken. I'm here to tell you God never breaks His promises.
God I'd like to think you for your many promises and being there to love us when we are not very lovable. Sometimes we don't even love ourselves but you love us no matter what. Be with my facebook family and friends and know that I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
