Great and Precious Promises

“God always keeps his promises” (Num. 23:19 CEV). “There is no question that he will do what he says” (Heb. 10:23 TLB).

 He has given us “great and precious promises” (2 Pet. 1:4). Let’s take a peek at a handful of them under five headings.


Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths (Prov. 3:6 NLT).

Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Josh. 1:9 NLT).

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you (Matt. 7:7).


God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble (Ps. 46:1).

God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never forsake you” (Heb. 13:5 NLT).                              


Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget how kind he is. He forgives all my sins … As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our sins from us (Ps. 103:2-3, 12 TEV).

I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist … I have redeemed you (Isa. 44:22).

I wipe away your sins because of who I am. And so, I will forget the wrongs you have done (Isa. 43:25 CEV).

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble (Ps. 32:7).

The God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast (1 Pet. 5:10).

What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later (Rom. 8:18 NLT).

You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory (Ps. 73:24).

And this is what he promised us—even eternal life (1 Jn. 2:25).
