God’s promises give us hope

Good Morning Everyone,
 
Our theme for this month: “The power of hope”
 
Our Bible verse for today: “For whatever was written before was written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we may have hope.” Romans 15:4 (CSB)
 
Our thought for today: “God’s promises give us hope.”
 
More than twenty-five years ago I came across a wonderful little book with the title “Walk Thru the Promises”. It was published by “Walk Thru the Bible Ministries” and it has proven to be a big blessing to me. This little pocket-sized book presents the promises of God on eighty different subjects. For instance, if you want to read some of the promises of God on the subject of “physical sickness” you can turn to page 156 and there you will find fifteen scriptural promises from God on that subject. For “finances” you will find twenty promises; if you’re struggling with “depression” there are fifteen promises that will help you. There are similar sections for seventy-seven other life-oriented subjects.
 
Once, as a Bible study and prayer exercise, I began on page one in the book and put a checkmark next to every promise that I knew to have been fulfilled in my life. It was eye-opening to say the least!
 
I honestly don’t know how many promises God gives to us in the Bible. I do know that in that little book “Walk Thru the Promises” there are almost 1000 individual scriptural references on those eighty different subjects. That’s a lot of promises!
 
My point is that in the Bible God has given us numerous promises on all sorts of subjects that relate directly to our daily lives. And, He keeps those promises. That should be a source of great hope and encouragement for us.
 
As we’ve been learning this month – hope is powerful, and now we know that God’s promises are a great source of hope for us. I encourage you to spend some time today considering the many promises God has made to you – and the many promises God has already kept for you.
 
Trust God. Put your hope in Him. He keeps His promises.
 
God Bless,
Pastor Jim
