Promises Which Do Not Fail

It is well for us to frequently refresh in our minds the never failing promises of God. The Apostle Peter call them “exceeding great and precious promises.” (2 Peter 1:4.) These promises are designed to help you and me as we try to serve God each day.

When you face some overwhelming crisis, remember this verse: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2.

When you wonder whether God cares enough to provide the necessities of life, read, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Psalm 37:25.

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 2.

The Lord is mindful of your every need whether it be spiritual, temporal, or physical. He is as much concerned about your temporal and physical prosperity as He is about your spiritual welfare.

God does not promise that we will have all the luxuries of life, but the necessities are certain. “He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” Isaiah 33:16.

If we make God first in our lives, He makes Himself responsible for all our needs. Jesus pointed this out: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33.

Thus we can rest assured that God will keep His promises – if we let him.
