Spring has arrived, and with it many elements of beauty created by our Heavenly Father. The buds on the trees are ready to burst into full bloom. The tulips are brilliantly arrayed in their colorful petals. The mountains are about to break forth into a vibrant shade of fresh green as the leaves begin to appear on the trees. These things, among many others, suggest the promise of spring’s arrival.
God has given us many promises in His Word. His promises are more sure than the arrival of spring. We can trust them.
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” 2 Corinthians 1:20
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;).” Hebrews 10:23
“The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.” Psalm 29:11
Look for these promises. Some are conditional promises, and require us to take action in order to receive the promise. Some are unconditional promises, and relate to God’s unchanging character.
“The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish.” Proverbs 10:3a
“For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” Psalm 5:4
“…Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.” Psalm 58:11
As we discover and meditate on the promises of God, we will grow in the knowledge of our infinite, holy God and Savior and be drawn ever nearer to Him. What more could we desire, than to deepen our relationship with the One Who has “saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9)?
“Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” 2 Thessalonians 5:24
Search the Word for these blessed promises. Claim them. Seek the Lord’s will through them, and delight in the will of your heavenly Father, knowing that He “only doeth wondrous things.” (Psalm 72:18b) This is a promise.
