What Has God Promised Us?



(Genesis 12: 1-3)1 The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.(The promise of Land) 2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.(The promise of descendants) 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”(The promise of blessings and redemption)
                       


The Bible is the authoritative source of information for Christians to study and apply standards to daily living. Encompassed in the Bible are promises from God that guide, comfort, and direct us as we walk this odyssey of life.

We will experience seasons of change. Some changes result from circumstances beyond our control, the Seasons of the Year revolve constantly, and personal and professional obstacles and situations will occur. However, there is one thing that never changes and it is the Word of God, which is translated in written form as the Bible.

Help in time of Trouble.
A righteous man may have many troubles, BUT the Lord delivers
him from them all. (Psalm 34:19-NIV)
    
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him. (Nahum 1:7-NIV)

Fear.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1-NIV)

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubles and do not be afraid. (John 14:27-NIV)
  
Love.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (John 13:34,35-NIV)

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:11-NIV)

Hope.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
(1 Peter 1:3-NIV)

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. (Psalm 31:24-NIV)

Guidance.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears
will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21-NIV)

Their God instructs them
and teaches them the right way. (Isaiah 28:26-NIV)

Faith.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
(1 Corinthians 16:13-NIV)

"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "Truly I tell you, if you say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and do not doubt in your heart but believe that what you say will happen, it will be done for you.  (Mark 11:22,23-NIV)

Sickness.
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make them well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.  (James 5:14-16-NIV)

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and  by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5-NIV)

We can find answers to every type of situation that we may face in life in the greatest book every written, the Bible. Let us pray according to what God has already promised us; act upon that which He proclaims; and spread the Word to the all who has the desire to move to the next level in Christ.

In Christ,
LaKenya
