Recently, God has laid two words on my heart. These two words are “promise” and “before.” Over the past several weeks I have been researching all the uses of these two words. God has used this time of in-depth study to remind me of His magnificent power, grace, forgiveness, peace, and love.
The Bible is full of His promises. This compilation is just a few of the promises God has used to speak to my heart over the years. Here is the really cool thing that God has been revealing to me: God spoke these promises to us before we were even created. Before! Think about that. Seriously. Let that concept marinate in your heart as you read these promises from God.
Promises from God
Know that the Lord God is God. He is a faithful God. He keeps his promises!
Come to me all who are weak and heavy burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you and learn from me. I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul.
I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
My God will supply all my needs, according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
If God is for us, who can be against us?
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths grow tired and weak and stumble and fall. But, those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grown weary; they will walk and not grow faint.
I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.
Neither death nor life,
Neither demons nor angels,
Neither fears for today, nor worries for tomorrow,
Not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
Nothing in all of creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus Christ
There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
God works all things together for the good of those who love him.
I have raised you up for this very purpose so that I may display my power in you
and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
Whoever listens to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear or harm.
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.
Do not fear, I am with you. I will strengthen you and help you;
I will hold you ups by my mighty right hand.
I will lead you through the unknown,
I will guide you through the unfamiliar paths.
I will turn darkness into light.
I will make the rough patches smooth.
I will never leave you.
The Lord will go before you. God has got your back!
I have made you and I have been carrying you since birth.
Even in your old age and gray hair,
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Call out to the Lord and He will answer, cry for help and he will yell “Here am I.”
Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth.
The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with J-O-Y!
My grace is sufficient for you. My power is made perfect in your weakness.
-2 Corinthians 12:9
He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of light, into the kingdom of the Son, Jesus he loves, in whom we have forgiveness of sins.
If you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord”
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved!
Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved!
-Romans 10:9, 13
