The Promises of God are Sure

The Promises of God are sure.

The Promises of God are Sure.

If Thy Law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.

Ps 119:92

The Precious Promises of GOD’s Word are like cordials to a soul that is ready to faint.

They are full of virtue.

There is a Promise,

“The LORD, Compassionate and Gracious”

(Ex 34:6)

Here, God holds out the golden scepter

to encourage poor trembling sinners to come to Him.

GOD is more willing to pardon, than to punish.

Mercy multiplies more in GOD, than sin in us. Mercy is His nature.

The bee naturally gives honey, and it stings only when provoked.

“But”, says the guilty sinner, “I cannot deserve Mercy”.

Yet, GOD is Gracious. He shows Mercy,

not because we deserve mercy, but because He delights in Mercy.

“But, what is that to me”? “Perhaps my name is not in the Pardon”.

The bank account of Mercy is not exhausted. GOD has treasures lying by,

and why should you not come, for a child’s share?

There is a a Promise working for good

“I will heal their waywardness”.

Hos 14:4

HE has Promised to send His Spirit, Whose sanctifying Power

is like water which cleanses vessels,

and like fire which refines metals.

The Spirit of GOD shall cleanse and consecrate your soul,

making it share in the Divine nature.

There is a Promise working for our good.

“I will be with him in trouble”.

Ps 91:15

God does not bring His people into troubles and leave them there..

God will stand by them. HE will hold their heads and their hearts,

when they are fainting..

“He is their stronghold in time of trouble”.’

Ps 37:39

“Oh”, says the soul, “I shall faint in the day of trial”.

But, GOD will be the strength of our hearts. GOD will join His forces with us.

Either GOD will make the burden, which is placed upon us, to be lighter,

or HE Will make our faith stronger.

There is a Promise,

“Those who seek the LORD, lack no good thing”.

Ps 34:10

If it is good for us, we shall have it.

If it is not good for us, then the withholding of it is good.

This blessing falls, as the honey dew upon the leaf.

It sweetens the little we possess.

Although a child of God might be reduced to great troubles,

yet, they will not be forsaken. They are still an heir to Heaven,

and God loves them for Christ’s sake.

Thomas Watson


Fill our minds with Christ

LORD GOD, as we read Thy Word,

may we see Christ walking in the sweet shades of Divine Love towards poor sinners.

And so, may our faith revive, and our comforts be restored.

When our minds are empty of Christ, as in temptation and the lack of comfort,

then they grind against themselves like an empty mill.

So, fill our minds with Christ, through Thy Word ,

that we may be free from temptations and fears.

May the threats of Thy Word, lead us to its Promises.

And, may we, by relying upon Thy Promises, make them ours,

and find their power and strength.

Animate our study of scriptures,

and so,

pour wine and oil into our bleeding wounds.

And when You have spoken peace and comfort to us,

When Thy face has shone upon our souls,

May we comfort others, with the comfort which we have been comforted,

knowing that the more we spend, the more we shall have.

William Bridge


Let us live in the constant contemplation of the Glory of Christ,

and virtue will proceed from Him

to repair all of our decays, and

to renew a right Spirit with us,

and cause us to abound in all duties of obedience.

The way of producing these effects,

flesh and blood can not reveal, for the life of faith is a mystery

known only to them in whom it is.

    Every unanswered prayer of a Christian resulting in a death by starvation or exposure is proof that God does not provide as promised. See Matthew 6:25-34, with many Psalms and proverbs repeating the same lie.

      Thank you for your comment.
      Read Genesis 1 and 2. The world God created was without starvation and exposure, yet now because of the lack of faith in GOD and lack of love for GOD, and rebellion against GOD, the present world is under the curse of sin and death. But, thanks be to GOD, Jesus Christ offers pardon for sin, peace with GOD, and eternal life. The wages of sin (which we deserve) are death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD
      Those who have been granted Repentance towards God and have received saving faith by God’s Grace have a sure and blessed hope. Those who have the SON of God have life, but those who do not believe have the wrath of GOD upon them.
      What is your “hope” right now?
      For those who are born of the Spirit of GOD we wait patiently (as a farmer waits for the harvest) and we endure, knowing that Jesus Christ is the Resurrection and the life, thus those who believe in Him, although they die, will be raised from the dead, as He was raise from the dead..
      What is it (if anything) that you trust in ?
      Can you guarantee yourself one more day or even one more breath ?
      This I believe,
      That I am not my own, but belong
      with body and soul,
      both in life and in death,
      to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.
      He has fully paid for all my sins
      with his precious blood, and has set me free
      from all the power of the devil.
      He also preserves me in such a way
      that without the will of my heavenly Father
      not a hair can fall from my head;
      indeed, all things must work together
      for my salvation. (not my full belly)
      Therefore, by his Holy Spirit
      he also assures me of eternal life and
      makes me heartily willing and ready
      from now on to live for him.
      “Heidelberg Confession”…

      What is it that you live for ?
      What assurance do you have ?
      GOD has appointed every man a day once to die, and after that judgment. Now, GOD gives you life and breath and being (and you can give yourself None of these).
      It’s not too late. Why will you die in your sins?
      I urge you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to GOD..
      This is eternal life, to know GOD, and
      the One God sent.
      Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost.
      There is no one More lost than one who doesn’t know he is lost.
      You will serve somebody.
      It may be sin or the devil (who’s wages are death)
      or it may be the LORD….
      Acts 2:38-39
      “Repent and be baptized every one of you
      in the name of Jesus Christ
      for the forgiveness of your sins, and
      you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off,
      everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
      There is a sure and certain hope which is found in the LORD Jesus Christ.
      The Promises of GOD are sure…….
