The Promises of God - Certainty in the Midst of Uncertainty

Recently, I have been spending a lot of time searching the Scriptures and writing down promises - God's promises.

They are everywhere!

God promises His children peace, joy, strength, victory, provision, protection, everlasting life...the list could go on and on.  The best part?  We are assured that each of these promises is true and unchanging.  Each one will come to pass!

"The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the Word of our God will stand FOREVER."
Isaiah 40:8

So why do I allow myself to continue to fear, worry, and be anxious?  God's promises will not fail me, no matter what outcomes lie ahead.  At the end of the day - God.  He remains constant.

Here is one of my favorite passages that I have run across so far:

"You whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you,
'You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off;
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you,
I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand;
it is I who say to you, 'FEAR NOT, I am the One who helps you.'"
Isaiah 41:9-10, 13

There are so many promises listed here!
  • God has chosen me!
  • He will not cast me off!
  • He will always be with me!
  • He is my God!
  • He will give me divine strength!
  • He will help me!
  • He will uphold me!
  • I have no need to fear!
These are promises that I am clinging to in the midst of the unknown.  In the midst of uncertainty, God is always certain, and His promises are true!

This is His story, and it is all for His glory!
