Steadfast in God's Promises
"But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness." 2 Peter 3:13
I'm not sure how many of us know what is entitled to us as Christians through Christ and as Children of God, but I wanted to share some scriptural promises with you.
One that I hold most dear, and you should to is that God promises to supply our need. (Philippians 4:19). Even when things seem almost insurmountable for me, I hold true to this scripture because looking back, God has gotten me through these same types of circumstances before.
God tells us that His grace is sufficient for us in our weakness, and that we can do all things through His son Jesus who gives us strength. Even when we are too proud to call on Him or give the problems to Him, God's grace is there for us! (2 Corinthians 12:9, Philippians 4:13)
God promises that when difficulties get too hard, that He will do many things: He will provide us a way of escape, He will carry the burdens for us, and He will deliver us from evil! So trust and know that your prayers are heard and they work!(1 Corinthians 10:13, Matthew 11:28, 2 Timothy 4:18)
God promises us that we will live and not die. All redeemed shall only fall asleep and be lifted from the curse of death. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Psalm 118:17)
Probably the most important of these is salvation and everlasting life! Jesus died for us; He did to redeem us from sin and the curse of the law. He died to bring us into the fold and extend salvation to those of us not covered. (John 3:16, Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38)
And God promises to make it work out for our good! "And we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them." Romans 8:28 We are partakers in the Holy Inheritance, so live these promises and call on God when you need them! (Ephesians 1:11)
Good night and walk in these promises!
'Certainly, Christ made God's many promises come true. For that reason, because of our message, people also honor God by saying, "Amen!"' 2 Corinthians 1:20(GWT)
