The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise... -2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)

God sent Jesus as the Child of Promise who became the Sacrificial Lamb bringing the New Covenant of salvation to all. Between the promise and the fulfilment, faith became sight and His faithfulness was proved. God’s promises are the cornerstone of Jesus followers today and forever. Take a look at just a few of His promises:

His Promise of Protection

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. -Isaiah 41:10 (NTL)

If we had to depend on just our own strength, where would we be?  If we had to travel our lives alone, where would we end up? We see it every day in people all around us - shallow lives, lonely passages, fear and weakness hover beneath smiling facades - but we escape this fate by the grace of God.  By His Spirit, He fills us with His strength, His courage, and His comfort to overcome everything that would discourage, derail or destroy us.  Be strong through the Lord and rejoice!

His Promise of Presence

I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. -John 10:11 (NIV)

In the presence of the Shepherd, the flock has nothing to fear. Twenty-four hours a day, never out of His sight or beyond His senses. His voice comforts them, His song draws them to His side. His face is familiar.  His scent permeates the air around them so that even when He cannot be seen, they know He is near.  It is only when they wander away from Him, distracted by greener grass and tricked by sweeter sounds, that they can be separated from His care.  While they are lost, tired, hurting, alone, the Shepherd never stops searching for them, whatever the obstacle or danger that stands in the way.  He surrounds them in His arms and carries them home on His shoulders – safe.


His Promise of Provision

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something from them. -Acts 3:5 (NIV)

The beggar at the Jerusalem gate looked to the disciples with expectation. He was hoping for just a few coins.  How short sighted? Little did he know what was at the end of his small request. Being in the right place at the right time, he picked the right travelers to extend his gaze. He didn’t know it at the time, but it had been prepared for him – all he had to do was ask. What might he have received if his expectation had been greater?  What is in store for us?  Prepare and anticipate something great!

His Promise of Power

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. -2 Corinthians 4:7 (NKJV)

Knowledge is power. Winning and wealth are power. We all need some level of personal power to live healthy lives. Subsequently, to possess power, we may work, struggle, bargain, cheat or steal. What makes God’s power so excellent is that is it free, unearnable and undeserved. The weaker we are in our physical form or financial standing, the more His power can become the only explanation for our success, strength or solace. Over and over throughout the Bible, God chose the underdog, the unexpected, and the unwanted to demonstrate what can happen when we unleash Him to use our weakness for His glory. Whether it is the under-rated quarterback who beats the odds and wins the day, or the terminally ill loved-one whose peaceful presence gives us the will to go on, it is in these excellent examples that all can see a power not of this world, but simply superior and definitely divine.

How many times does the Lord have to prove to us that His promises are true and He can and will provide for us?  If you haven't experienced His promises in your own life yet – test Him! Our God is bigger than our doubt and big enough to do more than we can ask or imagine. So ask – and think BIG!  Join us at Community Bible Fellowship as we learn how to trust His promises and obey His Word.
