5 Promises

By May 24, 2016 No Comments

Have you ever read a passage of scripture where it felt like God followed it up with a, “P.S. I promise”? That’s what it felt like for me this week while reading a variety of passages. It was as if He wanted to clarify that what I was reading wasn’t a suggestion, or a possibility, or a nice idea, but it was in fact, truth.

The Bible tells us we can hold full confidence in His promises because Christ is not in the business of breaking them – as clearly demonstrated by, in, on, and through the cross.

So for today’s devotional I’m sharing five passages of scripture that struck me as promises this past week. I pray they encourage your heart just as much as they did for me.

  1. He will go with you, sustain you and strengthen you.

”My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him. The enemy will not get the better of him; the wicked will not oppress him.” Psalm 89:21-22

  1. He will deliver you – no matter what.

”He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.” Psalm 18:19

  1. Even if chaos abounds, you will experience perfect peace.

”You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3

  1. You will have the things you need.

”Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.” Psalm 34:9

  1. He will guide you through the rough spots and help you do the right things.

”He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” Psalm 25:9

But perhaps life is not about adding more things to your already lengthy list, but rather, about pausing in the midst of it all to consider if what you're doing is really important.
