PROMISES YOU CAN COUNT ON!

An Opportunity to Focus on God’s Promises

To View or Print Study Guides

Who would you say is totally trustworthy these days? Politicians, educators, marketing directors, pharmacologists, financial advisors, travel experts, and even some preachers, call out to us with their “promises” to make our lives better, happier, healthier, and more prosperous if only we will purchase their product, elect them, or follow their advice. Without a doubt they mean well and often feel passionate about their concerns and solutions, but huge questions usually plague all of us as we try to discern what is truth. Who can we believe? What are the trade-offs if we follow their suggestions? How reliable is their information and perspective for the present and for the future?

Because most of us have a mind set that is somewhat cautious and skeptical, it is no surprise that when we come to the Bible, we often need to remind ourselves that there is absolutely no reason to approach God’s promises in this way. He is our God and He is good – always. His Son, Jesus, came to this earth so that anyone who believes in Him would be given not only the gift of eternal life but His Spirit to empower them. So when Peter, His disciple, wrote, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness”, we can know that this absolutely true!

It’s an enormous and overwhelming idea, isn’t it? “EVERYTHING YOU NEED . . . “ Really? Is this a believable idea? How does it happen? This is your invitation to join us as we study together what it means to believe that what God promises He will always do – for you and for all those who will trust in His unfailing love and grace.
