6 promises God has given for this time

First, God’s promises are always fulfilled, and there is nothing He has not given to your heart that does not fulfill, for He does not lie.

Besides, our heavenly father is good, faithful, and just. Also, the Bible in Numbers 23:19 that:“God is not a man, that he may lie, neither son of a man to repent. He said, and won’t he? He spoke, and he won’t execute it?”

On the other hand, 2 Corinthians 1:20 says: “For all the promises of God are in him Yes, and in him Amen, through us, for the glory of God.

6 promises God has given for this time

1. God has promised protection

First of all, you’ve probably heard and you know by heart the passage from Psalm 91, right? Well, we’ve all been through there. However, this passage has been given with different promises that strengthen our souls and ensure protection.

However, in order to be protected we must always be under the coat of the most high and not just take it for brief moments of our lives. Likewise, God has always promised to protect us until we reach the end of our days.

“The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shadow to your right hand”; Psalm 121:5.

However, being Christians does not free us from the evils of this world, we will still go through afflictions but we must be sure that God will defend us.

2. God has promised provision

Secondly, God has promised us provision. So much so that it compares us to the birds of heaven and the importance they have for God (Matthew 6:25-34) How much more value do we have for God?

Therefore, we must trust in God but without any index of eagerness.

3. God has promised rest

Another promise from God to us is His rest. In Matthew 11:28 it says, “Come unto me all ye that are labored and burdened, and I will make you rest.

There is nothing missing in God, and in Psalm 23 God promises us that places of rest, He will make us rest.

4. God has promised peace

As a result, we will have afflictions, but we must trust in God and ask him to fill us with his peace. John 16:33 tells us, “These things I have spoken unto you, that ye may have peace in me. In the world you will have affliction; but trust me, I have defeated the world.

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, shall keep your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus”; Philippians 4:7.

5. God has promised joy and hope

“For I know the thoughts which I have of you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you the end which ye expect”; Jeremiah 29:11.

There are plans that God has already set for us from the womb of our mother and that God will undoubtedly restore the areas that God wants to perfect.

6. God has promised forgiveness and eternal life

Finally, this is the best promise we can receive from God for this time.

“Indeed, I certainly say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, has eternal life; And he will not come to condemnation, but he has gone from death to life”; John 5:24.

God forgives us through The Sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. However, it does not mean that we should sin every day, for we would be playing with God.

God continues to love us despite the mistakes we make and will make good work of our lives until we reach the stature of Christ. Pray to God and keep each of these promises. Ask God to strengthen even your weaknesses.
