Some of God’s Promises

What Does God Say He Will Do? God tells us in His Word what He will do…what He promises….so we can invest our hope in those things.  Below are a few things I found to ask for because He promises…..

He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:8  (Lord,  keep me firm to the end even when I mess up.)

He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. 1 Corinthians 4:5 (The Holy Spirit perfect the motives of my heart expose darkness in others that I might not be deceived.)

By His power God raised the Lord from the dead and He will raise us up also. 1 Corinthians 6:14 ( Thank You Lord, that I will also experience resurrection life into eternity with You.)

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind.  And God is faithful, He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (Lord, you say temptations are normal and You have made a way for me to endure and come out of them. Help me please!)

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us again.  On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us.  2 Corinthians 1:10 (Help deliver me from this trouble I got into.)

Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 2 Corinthians 9:10 (Lord, I ask that You enlarge my righteousness by supplying manna from heaven, the Bread of life, the Word of God as I seek You.)

My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  2 Corinthians 12:9  (I feel so stuck in sin.  Yet, I know that Your grace is greater than my weakness and Your power in me is what overcomes.  It is not about me.  Help me to learn righteousness and faithfulness that I might be like You.)

Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6  (God keep working on me.  I know You are not finished with me yet and You will be faithful to complete Your work in me. Thank You Lord!)

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7 ( I am determined to focus on You and stay close to You.  I ask for Your peace to guard my heart from emotions and my mind from confusing deceptive thoughts.)

May He strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all His holy ones. 1 Thessalonians 3:13 (Strengthen my heart in love to prepare me to see Jesus-Yeshua, the Love of my life.)

For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.  Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 ( Comforted and encourage me in this dark world….knowing Jesus Yeshua will return and I will be with Him and all His family; and He will be victorious King.)

The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.  1 Thessalonians 5:24 (I can trust You.  You are always faithful.)

God is just.  He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well.  This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with His powerful angels.  He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.  2 Thessalonians 1: 6-8 ( I am strengthened in Your victory and promise.  When I see the horrendous evil supported by satan in this world, I know it will burn and be no more.  Your goodness will prevail.)

But the Lord is faithful and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (Yeshua Jesus protects me from evil powers, principalities, demons and evil spirits aligned with satan.)

If we endure, we will also reign with Him.  If we disown Him, He will also disown us.  2 Timothy 2:12  (I choose daily to never leave You, but always confess Yeshua Jesus as my Lord and believe in my heart that You are the one and only Savior…then I have Your promise to reign with You when You are the eternal King.)

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom.  To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen.  2 Timothy 4:18  (You are my rescuer in every evil attack…even if the attack results in death, I will then be safe in His heavenly kingdom.  You got me covered!)

So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him. Hebrews 9:28 (Thank You for paying for my sin and that I need no other sacrifice or good work than to be one with You.  I am waiting and know You are bringing eternal salvation.)

This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord.  I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds. Hebrews 10:16 (Holy Spirit, help me make His Word the law of my heart and mind.   I need no other man made written law.)

So we say with confidence, “the Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:6 (Fear of man go away in Yeshua Jesus name.  I have confidence that Jesus Yeshua helps me and He is so much greater than any man.)

Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8  (I come to You – Father, Son Yeshua Jesus and Holy Spirit, and You promise to come near to me.  I focus my mind singly on You and Your Word and I will hear and know You.)

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.  2 Peter 1:19 (You knows the beginning from the end…and Your prophecy is light in this earthly darkness…it shows me the Way.  I trust Your prophecy.  It is sure.)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9  ( I confess and repent and You are faithful to forgive and purify me.)

Dear friends, now we are the children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known, But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 1 John 3:2 ( Lord, what an amazing promise! I actually have the hope and promise to be like Jesus Yeshua!)

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  1 John 5:14 (Lord I am searching for Your will that I might ask according to it.  Help me know Your will. I know You hear me so I have confidence to leave the matter with You…..I will not nag You about it day after day….but will earnestly listen for the Way.)

For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:17  (You are my Good Shepherd and give me essential living water…You wipe away all my tears…You are my Comforter and constant Companion.)

The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He will reign forever and ever. Revelation 11:15 (Thank You Lord, that good overcomes evil.  King Yeshua Jesus will reign forever.  I will rejoice and give thanks forever!)

They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings – and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.” Revelation 17:14  (When the final war comes and it looks like all is disaster, Lord I know my confidence and hope can stand fast in You.  King Yeshua Jesus, the Lamb who was slain to save all people, will be victorious and make the earth His kingdom.  And we who love and follow Him will rejoice and give thanksgiving in His Paradise forever. You are faithful to Your promise.)

Are those the things you put your hope in and pray for? Lots of big hopes and mighty promises to ask Him to fulfill in your life!  Ask and it will be given. Seek and you will find.  Knock and the door will be opened.
