The promises of God do not have to be a mystery.
When I began to study God’s Word in context, it strengthened my faith more than anything! Being under grace and knowing God’s promises for the church will eliminate so much fear and will give so much more peace.
Life-Changing Promises of God:
We know the truth that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Although, the way God deals with His people and throughout different seasons in Scripture has not all been the same.
I’m thankful that we are in a space of grace. This helps us to be able to know God’s promises for the church today in correct doctrine and context.
Gods promises in the bible kjv
If you have been saved, you are sanctified (made holy). I’ve heard sanctification explained like it is a process. When Jesus died on the cross, He died for all of your sins- past, present, and future sins.
So many times we live as if Jesus’ sacrifice was not enough.
In the King James Bible, Hebrews 10:14 says,
“For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”
Whereas, in the NIV it says, “who are being made holy…” and NKJV says, “who are being sanctified.”
I’m so thankful that Christ made me holy at the moment of salvation. He clothed me in His righteousness.
There are many times that I just don’t feel good enough.
But the Christian life is not based upon our feelings or even our own goodness (even they are as filthy rags).
Thankfully, I’m not being sanctified. I am sanctified.
As we represent Christ, we have a choice to honor Him. We should die to our flesh on a daily basis so that we can be the vessel of honor that Paul talks about. But knowing that sanctification isn’t something that the Lord holds over our heads gives us liberty to have peace and joy throughout our lives as we serve and represent Him.
It frees us from sticking our nose up in the air at our brothers and sisters in Christ as we grow and think we have the Christian life all figured out.
List of God's Promises
Jesus is our Redeemer of the Rain
One of my favorite promises is that no matter what suffering we face in this life, it can’t even be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18)
This life can be difficult sometimes, but even on the best days we cannot even fathom what God has in store for us. We are going to have a perfect sinless body one day. There’s a promise of a better tomorrow.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
God's Promises Are Always Greater Than My Problems
My word or theme for the year was literally God’s promises. I have lived in Romans 8, so much so that I will even listen out loud to the entire chapter when I walk and run outside.
Listening to this chapter has been life-changing for me! God’s Word says that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
When we listen to God’s Word (as well as read it), it can strengthen our faith. When you start listening to your feelings, get out the Sword that can defeat those wrong thoughts.
“And we know all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
The promises of God says that He is on your side.
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
Scripture also tells us that God shall supply all your need. (Philippians 4:19) He meets our needs, but also “who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.” (I Timothy 6:17)
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”
(II Corinthians 4:8-9)
If you’ve had a season of trials, maybe even fear, loneliness, and mistakes, make this your theme verse. I’ve had these seasons too, and needed the reminder that even our darkest days cannot destroy us.
This post was all about the promises of God, and I hope it was an encouragement to you.
