Standing on God's Promises


Straight from the heart!!!

Someone, probably several someone's, carefully counted all of the promises of God that are recorded in the Bible, I understand that the count numbers into the thousands! What really counts, though, is the God of the promises! "There has not failed one word of all His good promise which He promised." What promises from God are you claiming today? What do you really expect God to do in your life? To your life? For your life? Do you remember some of the extra special and personal promises from God? Have you claimed them as your own? Have you thanked Him in advance that "What He said, that will He do? Or have you experienced so many broken promises from others that you are not sure you can even trust God's promises?
One of my favorite promises from God is "I will never leave you nor forsake you." His presence is continual and constant. Always comforting. Sometimes convincing, But always - always there.
His promises are not dependent on my feelings or my failings. Circumstances and situations do not become so powerful as to defeat God's promises. "What He has promised, that will He do."
Read God's promises in the Bible. Write down the ones you need to remember during these particularly challenging times. Thank Him that He made these promises to you and that not one word of all His good promises will fail with you.
