Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. (II Peter 1:4 NIV)
Did you know that people who believe Godís promises have an advantage over people who donít? If you read and study the Word of God, you will find that for every problem in life, God has given us a promise. When struggles threaten our lives, it is important to find hope by not only reading Godís Word, but also focusing on Godís promises.
Hereís a few of Godís promises that can be found in the Word of God:
ē You will know God (See Hebrews 8:11) Ė Itís important to realize that we can know Godís heart, his joy, his passion, his plan, and his sorrows.
ē You are made right by faith (See Romans 4:16) Ė Godís promise to us is salvation by faith. Make sure to increase your faith and stand on Godís promise.
ē God will guide you (See John 20:30-31) Ė As you read Godís Word, make sure to trust Godís promise that he will show you the way you should go.
ē You are an heir of God (See Romans 8:16-17) Ė You are an heir of God and have divine resources deposited in your heart.
ē God is near (See Judges 6:12) Ė Always remember that God is with you throughout your journey.
Some of Godís promises are positive which are the assurance of blessings, and others are negative which are the guaranteed consequences. However, all are binding, for not only is God a promise maker; God is a promise keeper.
