One thing I never fail to do when I’m discouraged, while running this eternal race is to remind myself of God’s numerous promises. From Genesis to Revelations, the Bible is packed with what God has promised us and will surely do (Isaiah 55:10-11). These are just the ones I’ve come across in my short walk with God: Kingdom service and its benefits (Exo 23:25-26), Blessings for obedience (Deut 28:1-13), Speedy answers for believers (John 14:12-14), Promise of unusual peace (John14:27), Double portion promise (Isa 61:7), Promise of strength (Isa 40:31), Promise of God’s own companionship (Isa 41:13), Promise of perfection (Psalm 138:8a), Promise of health (Isa 33:24a), Promise of His Presence in tough time (Isa 43:1-2), Promise of expansion (Isa 54:2-3), Blessings for sacrifice (Luke 18:29-30), Promise of the Holy Spirit’s help (John 16:13), Promise of double portion (Zech 9:12), Promise of elevation (Habbakuk 3:19), Promise of his ever-accomplishing word (Isa. 55:10-11), Seven-fold restoration (Prov 6:31), Promise of a perfect tomorrow (Prov 4:18), Promise of ruling over your enemies (Psalm 110:1-2), Promise of strange deliverance from captivity (Isa 49:24-25), Divine exemption from destruction (Exo 12:13b), Promise of an excellent future (Jer 29:11), Promise of no diseases and sicknesses (Exo 15:26). The great thing that all these promises have in common is their conditional nature. Every promise in the bible has a command or instruction attached to it and after this command has been carried out, you now have the right to claim the promises of God. God cannot deny His name and His word and so, when you never cease to remind God of the promises he has made in the Bible, he will make sure that is word stands (Isa 55:10-11). Claim these promises now and enjoy them for they are yours for the taking!!!
