God's Promises

From the late 1980's God began speaking to me in terms of promises through the Bible. Previous readings of the same verses meant different things.

I began feeling assured for my family and myself. Gradually the promises came true. One was for a job I was praying for whilst being unemployed. Sure enough that job in gardening came about several months after the promise was given. The effect of the promise was that it gave me hope, assurance and certainty. Another was for financial provision and that has been ongoing all the time.

Another promise I memorised was "Not one of his bones will be broken "  from John 19.27. Many months after God gave me that verse, my mother was knocked down by a car driven by a fellow parishioner. She was taken to hospital and was attended to and checked for damage. When she narrated the incident, she said "none of my bones were broken" and I remembered God's promise and was able to inwardly thank him for keeping it.

God's given me many promises, so many that I've lost count. They give me faith and life, peace, assurance and hope whenever they come to mind. Either when the Holy Spirit brings it to mind, or when I read the scripture verse again during Bible reading. 2 Peter 1.4 says, "Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires."

So these promises also serve as a useful tool in effective faith living when the world tries corroding faith. The world, people and circumstances around you might be saying one thing, but if God has spoken to you with a promise about something specific, he will bring his word to pass.Remebering them keeps your eye looking to see what God is doing and hearing what He is saying. 

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
