God’s Promises

Hebrews 6 18.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:18

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.

The Bible tells us that God cannot lie and His promises are unchangeable. We can be confident in and count on God’s promises for all eternity. Not only can we count on God’s promises but we can also live our lives by them. By faith we can receive and claim each and every promise God makes through His everlasting Word. The firm believer in God’s promises is comforted in all situations by the hope and encouragement they have in trusting and patiently waiting on the promises of God to be fulfilled either in this world or in heaven.

A Two-Step Process

Psalm 37 3.jpg

Verse of the Day: Psalm 37:3

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

God’s promises are often conditional. In other words, you have to do your part and God will do His part. There is a two-step process to receive this promise from God. The Lord will take care of all your needs but you need to trust in Him and do good. Notice the verse says “and” do good, not “or” do good. While you are waiting and trusting on God to fulfill His promise have faith. Moreover, do good, always keeping his commandments and doing the things that are pleasing to the Him.

Perseverance

Hebrews 10 36 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:36

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

 

When times are tough, when you are struggling or when things in your life seem stagnant, stay strong and don’t give up. Don’t lose your confidence in God and His promises. Wait without giving up, you only fail if you quit. God is in control so have faith in His timing. Do what God asks of you, finish your race strong and you will receive what He has promised.
