Encouraging Promises of God to Believers

I enjoy studying Scripture to discover how I can be more like Christ.

But sometimes, I just need to soak up the goodness of God.

I revel in his promises to believers – promises that, as God, he can always be trusted to fulfill. I appreciate that he included so many in Scripture, revealing his paternal, eternal, merciful, faithful love for us.

These promises particularly encouraged me today, and I hope they will raise your spirits as well!

  1. When I’m involved in a funeral service, a go-to reading for me is John 14:3. It speaks of the hope we have of an existence beyond this human journey. Also, I do wish more people would take Matthew 11:28 to heart and find the rest they so obviously need. Psalms 23 and 27 (“Of whom shall I be afraid?) are also favorites.

    1. In the first Christian workout videos I did as a teenager, the instructor always concluded with that verse. I thought it was such a great reminder that ultimately, God will perfect us in all ways, if we are walking with him.

    This one 💗 We hear “God loves you” so much that we rarely let it sink in. But when you add “lovingkindness” then the word takes on a whole new meaning!! He draws us in with kindness. This kindness is what helps us feel loved.
