I am so incredibly grateful for the promises of God.
They encourage me when I’m weak, strengthen me when I’m weary, and refresh me when I’m dry. The promises of God truly are my spiritual lifeblood. They connect me to God and fuel my faith in him.
But here’s the thing…
The promises of God ONLY benefit me if I remember them and apply them to my life. In other words, I must apprehend the promises of God and believe that they are mine in Christ.
In order to help both me and you do that, I’ve compiled 10 glorious promises of
May your heart be incredibly encouraged as you savor these promises.
Promise of God #1: Psalm 13:5
But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation (Psalm 13:5).
God’s love for us is steadfast, immoveable, unshakeable, and unchangeable. Nothing can ever stop him from loving you at 100% max capacity. He has saved you out of darkness, made you his child, and promised to bless you abundantly in Christ. Because of this, you can exult in and rejoice in the staggering, glorious salvation of God.
Promise of God #2: Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing (Zephaniah 3:17).
Listen carefully. Do you hear that? God is exulting over us with loud singing! Do you believe that God exults and rejoices over you? We fill God with great gladness. When we are in turmoil and overwhelmed, he quiets us with his love.
And when we need his deliverance (ALWAYS!), he is the mighty one who saves. What a sweet promise of God. The Lord himself is in our midst.
Promise of God #3: Romans 8:38-39
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).
There is nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, that can separate us from the incredible, overwhelming, staggeringly powerful love of God. Even if all the angel armies of heaven were arrayed against us, it couldn’t separate us from the love God.
Neither your current circumstances, nor circumstances to come can break God’s invincible love for us. In fact, there is nothing in ALL of creation, including death itself, that can remove us from God’s invincible love. Doesn’t this promise of God encourage you?
Promise of God #4: 1 John 3:1
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. (1 John 3:1).
How much does God love us? So much so that he adopted us and calls us his beloved children. And because we are beloved children of God, we also have an inheritance from God. Amazingly, we share in Christ’s inheritance!
Is there any other love so deep or high or wide? Christ lived, died, and rose again so that God could bring us into his forever family. Hold fast to this glorious promise of God.
Promise of God #5: 1 John 4:10
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10).
I’m so incredibly grateful for this promise of God. We don’t have to earn God’s love. We don’t have to work our way into God’s love. Rather, God proved his love by sending Jesus to take the wrath of God in our place. That’s what it means that he is a propitiation for our sins. On the cross, Jesus took the wrath that we deserve.
Is there any greater proof of God’s love? He gave up his son for us. He poured out his furious wrath for sin upon Jesus instead of us. This promise of God should cause to overflow with gratefulness and thanksgiving.
Promise of God #6: Romans 8:31
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31).
Is there anything sweeter than knowing that God is
If God is for us, is there anything that can stand against us? Is there any circumstance greater than God? Is there any person who can thwart God’s will for us? Is there anything at all in all of creation that can stand against the living God? No! And all of God’s omnipotent power is for us. What a glorious promise of God.
Promise of God #7: Romans 8:32
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:32)
Is there anything more precious to God than his son, Jesus? No. And yet he was willing to sacrifice his precious son on our behalf. How incredibly valuable we are to God that he would make such a sacrifice!
If he was willing to sacrifice his own son for us, is there anything he will withhold from us? If he was willing to give up what was most precious to him, will he hold back anything good from us? Never! We can be assured that if something is good for us, God will absolutely give it to us. Why? Because he has already given up the thing that is so precious to him.
Promise of God #8: Matthew 10:29-31
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows (Matthew 10:29-31).
If God cares about the sparrows – little birds that were sold for just a penny – does he not care infinitely more for us? If God numbers every hair upon our heads, does he not know exactly what we need at any given moment? Yes, he does.
We are of infinitely greater value to God than the sparrows. And so if God cares that much about sparrows, we can be assured that he cares infinitely more about every circumstance we face and every challenge we encounter. He will take care of us. God will provide for all our needs.
Promise of God #9: 2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
He has promised to establish us and guard. He will establish us in his goodness. In his mercy. In his faithfulness. In his blessings. And if the Lord has promised to establish us, can anything thwart his plans. As he establishes us, he will guard us against the evil one. He will protect from all that would try to come against us.
Promise of God #10: Psalms 93:5
Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him (Psalm 30:5).
All of these promises are 100% true and we can throw ourselves upon them entirely. Every single word will prove true, and nothing can stop God from fulfilling his promises to us.
God’s promises are so trustworthy that they are a shield to us. We can take refuge in his promises, hope in them, trust in them, rest completely in them. When Satan throws fiery darts at us, the promises of God shield us from them.
Hold Tight To The Promises Of God
Charles Spurgeon said:
The sacred promises, though in themselves most sure and precious, are of no avail for the comfort and sustenance of the soul unless you grasp them by faith, plead them in prayer, expect them by hope, and receive them with gratitude
If we want these promises to comfort, strengthen, and sustain us, we must grasp them by faith, plead them in prayer, expect them by hope, and receive them with gratitude.
When we do those things, the promises of God become incredibly sweet to us.
Hold fast to the promises of God. They’re unshakeable.
