25 promises of God

LIFESTYLE, MINDFULNESS

Every year when I pull out the Christmas decor, I plan to actually put something in the doors of our advent calendar. The kids always open them, expectant to find some little treasure, only to discover barren holes. So, this year I actually spent some time writing down 25 things that God has promised us, His children. I intentionally ended the group with the promise of 2 Cor. 1:20-22 that all of these promises are “yes” to us through Jesus: He is the Promise, making all other promises available to us. (In my head this will all segue nicely into the story and excitement of the birth of Christ; we’ll see.) But, I realized during the hours (no exaggeration) of putting this together how life-giving it was/is for my spirit to dwell on the promises of God. So, in effort to share the life, hope, and promise of Christ, here’s the non-comprehensive list: 

1.       God always keeps His promises (Num. 23:19, Ps. 146:6)

2.      God created us and knows us (Ps. 139)

3.       God chose us (Ps. 33:12, 2 Pet. 2:9)

4.      God is always with us (Deut. 31:8)

5.       God never forgets us (Is. 49:15-16)

6.      God watches over our lives and keeps us from harm (Ps. 121)

7.       God has plans to prosper us and give us hope (Jer. 29:11-13)

8.      God strengthens us and helps us (Is. 41:10)

9.      God fights for us (Ex. 14:14, Deut. 1:30, Deut. 3:22, Neh. 4:20, 2 Cor. 10:4-5)

10.    God rewards us when we love our enemies (Lk. 6:35)

11.    God is kind and cares for us (Ex. 34:6-7)

12.    God always teaches and guides us (Ps. 32:8)

13.    God is our hiding place and refuge (Ps. 32:7, Ps. 46:1)

14.    God keeps us safe while we sleep (Ps. 4:8)

15.    God protects us from the Evil One (2 Thess. 3:3)

16.    God provides a way out of temptation (1 Cor. 10:13)

17.     God comforts us (Is. 66:13, 2 Cor. 1:3-4)

18.    God keeps us in peace (Is. 26:3, 12)

19.    God exalts the humble (Jam. 4:10)

20.    God meets all our needs (Phil. 4:19)

21.    God gives us rest (Mat. 11:28)

22.    God always forgives us when we confess to Him (1 John 1:9)

23.    God give us eternal life (John 3:16-17)

24.    God gives us victory over death (1 Corin. 15:3-4, 54-57)

25.    Jesus is “yes” to all of God’s promises (2 Corin. 1:20-22)

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:1-7)

  1. janie: Unfortunately, all of my creativity is lost in a heap of mess right now. I’ll send some your way as soon as I can. But, thank you for your encouragement.
    mom: I’ll be glad to talk about this any time. Thanks for imparting these promises when I need to hear them.
    Steph: I always find that recalling the promises of God is the most difficult at the times I need them the most. I’m glad to share some life with you.

  2. Thank you thank you thank you. Bethany, as my time of wilderness continues I find that my mind can no longer recall his promises and his faithfulness. This is a direct answer to a prayer that I literally prayed 10 minutes ago.

  3. Thanks honey!! What a wonderful idea and I printed off a copy to keep.
    We can share with everyone at Christmas!
    love and blessings

  4. I love that. Great idea, and thanks for sharing!
