9 Comforting Promises God Has Given To People in The Bible

Promises of God

Although many of us consider ourselves Christians, we don't thoroughly study our faith and live by the commandments. As a results our goals and objectives differ that of God's and this is why His promises aren't realized in your our lives. Here are 9 wonderful promises that the God has given to those who love him, written in the Bible.

1. God has promised to take care of all your needs: house, clothes, food, company, friends, security. Everything you need for a good life.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philip. 4:19.

2. God has promised that his grate is sufficient for us. This means he has given us enough aptitude and ability to fill and satisfy our needs. You just need to appreciate it, so that it starts working in you. See what the Scripture says.

But he said to me, “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.

3. God has promised that His children will not be overcome by temptations and trials. Moreover, he assures us that in every difficult situation there will be a way out and He will show it.

No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] 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).

4. God has promised us victory against death. He resurrected Jesus Christ, giving us confidence that we will be resurrected and will live forever. "But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Corinthians 15:56)

5. God promised that everything around us happens for our good if we love the Lord. Everything, even the difficulties, benefit us and lead us to salvation if we love the Lord and aim to leave by His commandments. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28). When you go through difficulties and trials it is sometimes difficult to see this. It is sometimes difficult to understand why these things happen to us and how can we possibly spiritually benefit from them. Yet, our Lord told us to enter through the narrow gate (Mat. 7:13) and also said that "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). Thus, we should have the full confidence in trusting what our Lord teaches us about life and its tribulations.

6. God has promised that those who believe in Jesus and are baptized for the forgiveness of sins, shall be saved. the forgiveness of sins, are baptized, shall be saved.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:16 and Acts 2:38).

7 God has promised that he will not leave us orphans. He will come to us and forever live with us. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. (John 14:18).

8. God has promised that all whoever believes in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, God's Holy Spirit will flow from him or her as rivers of living water. “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” (John 7:37-38).

9. God promised his people eternal life. "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand." (John 10:28).

Dear reader. We do need to love God and honor His commandments in our lives. Live your life in such a way so that all of these promises are fulfilled in your life. Living without real faith means leaving without confidence, trust and loyalty. Is it possible to live without confidence and loyalty?
