Sampling of God's promises

Salvation

 

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:36  “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him”.

 

Eternal security

John 6:37-40  “all that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to me I will certainly not cast out.  “for I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.  This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He had given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.  For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I myself will rase him up on the last day”.

John 10:27-29  My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;  and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of my hand.  “my Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Fathers hand.

Romans 8:38-39  For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

His Goodness

Matthew 7:11  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

His Unconditional Love

Romans 8:35-39  Who will separate us from the love of Christ?  Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  Just as it is written, “for Your sake we are being put to death all day long;We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”  But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

His Constant Care and Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:2-4  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

His Faithfulness

1 Corinthians 10:13  No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

2 Thessalonians 3:3  But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

Lamentations 3:22-23  The Lord’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Victory over sin

Romans 6:11-14  Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.   Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body as that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.  For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

Galatians 5:16  But I say, walk by the spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.

In Trials

2 Corinthians 4:17-18  For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

2 corinthians 12:9-10  And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.”  Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.  Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

James 1:2-4  Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

1 Peter 1:6-7  In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

Romans 5:3-5. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

In Decision-Making

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Psalm 31:3  For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.

When Anxious

Philippians 4:6-7  “be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 26:3  “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.

Matthew 6:25-34  “for this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; or for your body, as to what you will put on.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you  not worth much more than they?  And who of you being worried can add a single hour to his life?  And why are you worried about clothing?  Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.  But if god so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will he not much more clothe you?  You of little faith!  Do not worry then, saying “what will we eat? or What will we Drink? or What will we wear for clothing?  For the gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.  So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.

When Discontented

1 Timothy 6:6-10  But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.  For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.  If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.  But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a  snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.  For Love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Philippians 4:11-13,  I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity;  In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.  I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:19  and my God will supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.

 When Discouraged

When Impatient

Psalm 62:5  My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.

James 5:7-8  Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord.  The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.  You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.

When Sensing Your Inadequacy

2 Corinthians 3:5-6  Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Philippians 1:6  For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:13  For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (dont forget verse 12!)

Hebrews 13:20-21  Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. amen.

Isaiah 40:29-31  He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power.  Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

When Lonely

Deuteronomy 31:8  The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you.  He will not fail you or forsake you.  Do not fear or be dismayed.

Joshua 1:9  Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous!  Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

When Tempted

James 1:13-15  Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.  But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.  Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.

Romans 13:14  But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.

Psalm 119:11  Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

When Wronged

Romans 12:19-21  Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.  But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head”.  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Matthew 5:44  But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Ephesians 4:30-32  Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.  Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Proverbs 15:1  A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5  Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not eek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered.

James 1:19-30  This you know, my beloved brethern.  But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger, for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

Hebrews 4:15  For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all thins as we are, yet without sin.

Genesis 50:20  As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.

When you don't know what to do

Exodus 14:13  But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear!  Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever.

Hebrews 4:16  Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

In Carnality

Psalm 66:18  If I regard wickedness in my heart, the Lord will not hear.

1 Corinthians 11:31-32  But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.  But when you are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

Hebrews 4:13  And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

Hebrews 12:11  All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness

Galatians 6:7-8  Do no be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.  For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the spirit will from the spirit reap eternal life.

Numbers 32:23  But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out.

Proverbs 14:12  There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

For the Future

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.  Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11  for God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.  Therefor encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

Revelation 21:4  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any morning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.

Of Suffering and Persecution

Philippians 1:29  For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake

2 Timothy 3:12  Indeed, ALL who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus WILL be persecuted.

2 Corinthians 5:10  For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
