The Promises of God - December 30, 2020

No words written on paper will ever sustain you like the promises of God. Do you know them? To the bereaved, God promises: “Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). To the besieged, God promises: “The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all” (Psalm 34:19). To the sick, God promises: “The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness” (Psalm 41:3). To the sinner: “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

And when fears surface, respond with this thought: But God said… And when doubts arise: But God said… And when guilt overwhelms you: But God said… Search the Scriptures for promises like a miner digging for gold, and once you find a nugget, grasp it. Trust it. For there is no greater treasure.
