Believe in God’s Promises

God promised He would never leave us or forsake us. That is a promise from God Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth. His power is beyond measure. His strength is without end. And his mercy never fails. As His children, we ought to seek every opportunity to honor our Father whenever He makes good on His promises. His Yes is as sure as the sunrise:

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

Of all the promises given, the one most important is the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-17). If we love Jesus our Savior, keeping His commandments, giving God the glory in all things, He will impart the Holy Spirit to us and He will dwell in us forever. We will know God and He will know us. Our sins will be no more, and even when our flesh ceases to exist, we will live again. We will put on a new body, without defect, and it will be perfect in every way. We will be perfect in every way.

It all starts with believing Jesus is the Christ, who died for us on the cross. When we accept Him as our personal savior, God promises we will rise again to new life, filled with glory, honor, and joy, brimful and running over.

Now is the time to believe. Now is the time to claim those promises.

  1. Thanks for the post.I have heard it said a few times that the Holy Spirit is ‘salvation made easy’. The Holy Spirit is our great teacher.
    We are told in Eph 4: 30 not to grieve the Holy Spirit.
    Accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior is the first step. Believing God’s promises is very important but must be accompanied by obedience to his word and living in holiness by his grace. We grieve the Holy Spirit through sin. May God almighty help us all to live for him in holiness and righteousness through Jesus Christ. Amen.

    1. I am one-hundred percent in agreement with you. King Saul is the best example of grieving the Holy Spirit in the bible. Thankfully, God placed his spirit in King David, and we have the wonderful works of the Psalms in which we can enjoy and contemplate.

  2. Beautiful post, thank you…love this promise, John 3:16 ~ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
