In the Bible, there are many promises made by God. Some promises are for specific individuals, but there are MANY that we have access to through Jesus! Many Christians struggle with believing the promises of God. Oh, they sound nice, and sometimes they even cheer us up. But we may wonder, are they really true? Unconsciously, at least, we question whether or not God really does keep His promises.
Our God loves us and He will never let us down. All of the promises that He has ever made have or will come true!
Let’s take a look at some of the promises in the Old and the New Testament that God has given us through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Are God’s Promises for Me
Few things are more comforting than knowing and believing that God is at work in our lives. This type of comfort is the result of a confidence not in our own abilities, but in a God whose promises never fail. What He says will happen, He will accomplish. But this type of confidence comes only by faith. And faith comes by hearing God’s Word .
God promises that if we search for him we will find him
“But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29).
God promises to protect you
“This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” (Psalm 91:2 ).
God promises to forgive us of all of our sins
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9).
God promises us a New life in Christ
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
God promises to answer your prayers
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7 ESV).
God promises to be with you
“I will not fail you or abandon you. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:5, 9).
