Powerful Promises of God Bible Verses – You are not alone!

The Lord is watching and guiding you!

Psalm 139:7-10

7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?  Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.  If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.

Hebrews 13:5-6 (portion)

…For God has said,“I will never fail you.  I will never abandon you.”[bSo we can say with confidence,“The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear….

Our God is all seeing and all knowing, and He is with us at this moment.  Sometimes we may not feel that way, but yes He is with us.  The evil one wants to make us feel alone, forgotten and forsaken.  Let’s not fall into his trap.  Let’s remember and keep alive the saving power of the Lord in our life.  Let’s continue to reach out to Him.  He is our great God, our deliverer and our Savior.  I love what it says in Job.

Job 22:23-30

23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; You will remove iniquity far from your tents.  24 Then you will lay your gold in the dust, And the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.  25 Yes, the Almighty will be your gold[a] And your precious silver;  26 For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, And lift up your face to God.  27 You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you, And you will pay your vows.  28 You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.  29 When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come!’ Then He will save the humble person.  30 He will even deliver one who is not innocent; Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”

This describes what our great God will do through our Lord Jesus.  We only need to turn to Him and seek his path of righteousness (Jesus is our righteousness).  The evil one wants to cast us down, he wants to make us feel that there is no hope, no future.  But the future for us is bright and secure.  Remember the three boys who were cast into the furnace.  They had sustaining faith that saw them through their difficult trial.  The King presented them with a challenge.  Were they going to serve our Lord God, or bow down to an idol?

Daniel 3:12-15

12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”  13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

They had a high position working for the King.  They had power and comfort, a good life in comparison to many.  They could have maintained this life with one simple act, bow down to the golden idol.  They did not forget their belief in God, that the Almighty was their gold!  They had been in difficult times before and chose to serve God.  He sustained them.  Now they needed to have sustaining faith!  They had no assurances as to how this would turn out, yet they placed themselves into the hand of the Almighty.  Here is what they said:

Daniel 3:16-17

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

We know that these boys were delivered from the furnace.  However, even if they had not been delivered from the physical pain and death, they still would have been delivered for their eternal life.  We need only look at the example of Jesus who endured suffering and pain and now sits at the right hand of God.  God’s purpose for Christ was not to dwell any longer on the earth.  God’s purpose for the three boys however, was still on the earth.  He used an impossible situation to glorify His name.  Their test became a testimony!  We are still here; God is not finished with us yet.  He has a purpose for us, a path of blessing and prosperity.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Let’s follow the example of these three boys and put our trust in God even though we do not know how it is going to work out.  Let’s activate our sustaining faith!  Even though our feelings or the knowledge and wisdom of the earth from the evil one says there is no hope.  Let’s hold on to the knowledge, wisdom and promises of our God!

Matthew 19:26

 26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Our God is with us right now at this moment.  He is leading us down a path of greatness and brightness.  When it becomes really difficult, He even carries us.  He will never give up on us or leave us (Hebrews 13:5-6).

 One night a man had a dream.  He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Scenes from his life flashed across the sky and he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,one belonging to him and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life had flashed before him,he recalled that at the lowest and saddest times of his life there was only one set of footprints. Dismayed, he asked, “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,you’d walk with me all the way. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious child.  I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you saw only one set of footprints…That was when I carried you.”

 – Footprints in the Sand

When we start to feel alone or forgotten, that there is no hope, let’s reach out to the Lord even more.  Let’s activate our sustaining faith and declare His promises over our life.  Let’s put away our thoughts and ideas and put our full trust in Him.  Let Him carry and take us to where we need to be.  We can be assured that the place He takes us will be a place of brightness, prosperity and blessing.

Righteousness of God in Christ – Bible Words

Romans 3:19-24 Amplified Bible (AMP)

19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that [the murmurs and excuses of] every mouth may be hushed and all the world may be held accountable to God.

20 For no person will be justified (made righteous, acquitted, and judged acceptable) in His sight by observing the works prescribed by the Law. For [the real function of] the Law is to make men recognize and be conscious of sin [[a]not mere perception, but an acquaintance with sin which works toward repentance, faith, and holy character].

21 But now the righteousness of God has been revealed independently and altogether apart from the Law, although actually it is attested by the Law and the Prophets,

22 Namely, the righteousness of God which comes by believing with personal trust and confident reliance on Jesus Christ (the Messiah). [And it is meant] for all who believe. For there is no distinction,

23 Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory [b]which God bestows and receives.

24 [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus,

2 Corinthians 5:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [[a]endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].

Hebrews 10:10-17Amplified Bible (AMP)

10 And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).

11 Furthermore, every [human] priest stands [at his altar of service] ministering daily, offering the same sacrifices over and over again, which never are able to strip [from every side of us] the sins [that envelop us] and take them away—

12 Whereas this One [Christ], after He had offered a single sacrifice for our sins [that shall avail] for all time, sat down at the right hand of God,

13 Then to wait until His enemies should be made a stool beneath His feet.

14 For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy.

15 And also the Holy Spirit adds His testimony to us [in confirmation of this]. For having said,

16 This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up and conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their inmost thoughts and understanding),

17 He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more.

We are secure in God’s mighty hand!

Isaiah 41:8-20  New International Version (NIV)

“But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob, whom I have chosen,
    you descendants of Abraham my friend,
I took you from the ends of the earth,
    from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’;
    I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

11 “All who rage against you
    will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
    will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
    you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
    will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.
14 Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob,
    little Israel, do not fear,
for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord,
    your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge,
    new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them,
    and reduce the hills to chaff.
16 You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up,
    and a gale will blow them away.
But you will rejoice in the Lord
    and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

17 “The poor and needy search for water,
    but there is none;
    their tongues are parched with thirst.
But I the Lord will answer them;
    I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights,
    and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water,
    and the parched ground into springs.
19 I will put in the desert
    the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive.
I will set junipers in the wasteland,
    the fir and the cypress together,
20 so that people may see and know,
    may consider and understand,
that the hand of the Lord has done this,
    that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

How beautiful when we accept Christ into our lives, that our Father’s word from Isaiah is over us.  Often circumstances of life can overwhelm and discourage.  Sometimes even our own actions can cause this.  Remember what the Apostle Paul said, “We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do” (Romans 7:14-15).  Paul had the same battles that we have every day.  He even struggled with his own thoughts and actions.  But how does Paul finish this chapter.  It is the same thought that we need to focus on when we get discouraged, when we fear the future or are troubled.  “Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:25).  Focus today on the finished work of Jesus over your life, believe that your sins and shortcomings are remembered no more!  Do not be paralyzed with fear and condemnation, but focus on Christ and His beautiful future for you.  Remember that the promises of God cover you today and everyday and that God has you in the palm of His hand.

Psalm 1

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so,But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

May you increase a thousand times! (Deuteronomy 1:11)

11 May the Lord, the God of your ancestors, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!

Powerful Promises of God, God is faithful to us! Hebrews 13:5-6

I will not worry or doubt, only trust.  God will not fail me.
Hebrews 13:5-6
“…and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support.
