What Are the Promises of God?


Imagine stumbling over a treasure chest buried in the ground. You open it. It’s full of gold coins. Millions and millions of dollars’ worth.

That’s a perfect picture of the Bible. The Bible is like a treasure chest. But instead of gold coins, it’s full of something infinitely better — the promises of God.

But sadly, too many Christians don’t know God’s promises. It’s like God gives us a treasure chest full of gold coins – but we leave it closed. We don’t know what’s in it. We never use the coins.

But God wants us to open the treasure chest and see all the riches we have in His promises. He wants us to see the riches, trust the riches, and experience the riches of His promises.

But we can only do that if we know His promises. So – what are the promises of God?

HEART-SATISFACTION – God promises to satisfy me fully and forever in Jesus Christ. 

FORGIVENESS – God promises to forgive me through faith in Christ so I can experience His heart-satisfying presence forever.

PERSEVERANCE – God promises to keep me strong in faith so I can experience His heart-satisfying presence forever.

REWARD – God promises to reward my life of faith with even more heart-satisfaction in Him now and forever.

CIRCUMSTANCES — God promises to give me the perfect combination of blessings and trials so I will have the greatest heart-satisfaction in Him.

NEEDS – God promises to provide everything else I need in such a way that I will most fully enjoy Him now and forever.

HEAVEN — God promises to raise me from the dead so that forever I can join all the redeemed in the heart-satisfying joy of beholding God’s glory in Christ.
