Promises from God worth sharing with others

by Dave Malnes

The whole teaching of the Bible asserts and implies the following promises:

Not a sparrow falls to the ground without our Father knowing about it.

Every hair on our head is all numbered and accounted for.

We are not to be overwhelmed about anything, because our Father cares for us.

We are not to avenge ourselves, because our Father has appointed Himself to be our defense, our jury, and our judge.

We are not to fear, for the Lord is on our side.

No one can be against us, because He is for us.

We shall not want for anything, for He is our Shepherd.

When we pass through the rivers they shall not overflow us, and when we walk through the fire we shall not be burned, because He will be with us.

He shuts the mouths of lions for they cannot devour us.

“He rescues and he saves.”  (Daniel 6:27)

“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others.”   (Daniel 2:21)

“In the LORD’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.”   (Proverbs 21:1)

“Lord, you rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.”  (2 Chronicles 20:6)

“You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.”   (Psalm 89:9)

“The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.”  (Psalm 33:10)

“The LORD does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths.”  (Psalm 135:6)

“And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”  (Job 26:14)

“Do you now know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.”  (Isaiah 40:28)

These promises of God resonate with our hearts when our faith sees God in everything. Peace, joy, patience, along with other fruits of the spirit, dominate our lives, affect our attitudes, and bring power to our Light.

The words of the post were taken from a classic Christian book entitled, “The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life” by Hannah Whitall Smith.
