God Promised

“No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.” 

Romans 4:20-21

Abraham was no doubt a man who walked with God.  No distrust made him waver.  He grew strong and he was fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.

We are all accustomed to promises.  We see them made and followed through and we see them broken.   We all have seen promises broken for many reasons.  Sometimes we forget, sometimes we are negligent and sometimes it may be due to circumstances beyond our control.

A few weeks ago we explored the promises of God.  According to the Good News Herald there are 8810 promises in the Bible.   These are 8810 promises we can stand on.

Here are a five promises to consider:

 1.God will never leave us.

Hebrews 13:5 says “I will never leave thee.” God is ever present.  Like all promises, this is an important promise to learn and remember that God keeps.  God meeting us where we are at with a love without condition.  God wants relationship with us and when we follow God in relationship, by His extended grace, God is with us and will never leave us. 

 2.God is our shield.

Genesis 15:1 reminds us “I am thy shield”, God is our protection.  This shield shows a visual when arrows come, God’s shield keeps us safe in His will and plan.

 3.God will strengthen us.

Isaiah 41:10 “I will strengthen thee” God is our power.   God promises to strength us.  Contemplating the power of God is something which benefits all believers.  We see God’s power in nature, as God is Almighty.  When we meditate on the fact that God is all powerful and we are reassured that God is in control and that we don’t have to be.

 4. God will help us.

The other part of Isaiah 41:10 says, “I will help thee” God is our provision.  God always provides for us, though sometimes it may not be what we expect or hope for.  The challenge when receiving God’s provision and care is to see it, even when it may be different than we expect.  I heard it said that God is always doing 10,000 things in our lives and we may only be aware of 3 of them.  This is where we recognize that God’s ways are “higher than our ways” as God sees more than what we see.

5.God gives us thoughts of peace.

Jeremiah 29:11 “thoughts of peace, and not evil” God gives us hope and purpose.   God’s promise is for hope and peace.  This encouragement comes with learning this promise.  When we focus on thoughts of peace, not evil we benefit our mind and heart. 

 

To stand on God’s promises, we must learn them and remember them.  Remember through these promises, God is present, he protects us, God is our power, and God is our provision and our peace.

 

May we stand on the promises and be fully convinced that God will do what he promised.

 

Standing on the Promises,

Pastor Kevin
