Standing on the promises of God.

10 Scriptures About God’s Promises

2 Peter 1:4

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Matthew 11:28-29

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

Philippians 4:19

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:37-39

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Microsoft Word - Document1Proverbs 1:33

But all who listen to me will live in peace,
untroubled by fear of harm.”

John 14:27

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

The promises of God are powerful and awesome to grasp. I pray that these scriptures about God’s promises were helpful to you today.

Thank You for putting these verses together they are among the best for comforting the soul.
my mind tends to wander ( did I feed the dog ? do I need to do this or that !) so to prevent that , I read the verses one at a time out loud.. then go back & read the 1st & 2nd, then the 3rd , then back to the 1st.. I find in doing it this way it really gets into my heart & I’m not just reading the words.

Blessing osawaru May 19, 2016 at 3:32 pm

dont give up keep on praying , God will not forget you just believe in him.


Don Bailey June 7, 2016 at 11:33 am

Please understand, these are not God’s promises, these are God’s Word. Somewhat like the differences in the usages of the verbs is and shall, God’s word shall be done.


Jack Wellman June 7, 2016 at 12:41 pm

Thank you Mr. Bailey. If these are not promises, then why does Peter write it is “by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire” (2 Pet 1:4) instead of God has granted to us his precious and very great “words”, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire? There are dozens of New and Old Testament Bible verses with the word “promises” in them like:

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:13
But in keeping with God’s promise, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

What do you make of these “promises” then sir?

I counted 163 “promises” in all of the Bible.


daniel July 15, 2016 at 3:16 am

mmmh thats true lisa


Danielle Holt August 24, 2016 at 4:40 pm

Thank you Jack Wellman!!!
Thank you Lord our Father for those promises!!


Jack Wellman August 24, 2016 at 5:41 pm

Thank you so kindly my sister in Christ. All glory to God (1 Cor 4:7)!


Claire August 25, 2016 at 3:45 pm

I sometimes feel like God has always given me second best.
Not that I’m unappreciative or ungrateful of the things his done in my life. Why is it so and how can I overcome this?


Jack Wellman August 25, 2016 at 5:17 pm

Hello Claire. Perhaps you can look at it from Paul’s perspective who said (while in prison), “I have learned to be content in all things” and that didn’t mean, “if I feel like it.” He chose contentment and had the joy that Jesus has despite the shame, looking toward the joy that was set before Him. Start giving thanks….in all things…that’s what the Bible commands us (1 Thess 5:18). Hope this helps you Claire. God didn’t give you second best. He gave the very best; the Son of God for you and I.


Christine September 14, 2016 at 6:58 pm

I am struggling to hold onto my faith. My family is in desperate financial trouble and we literally 100% rely on God for our money because we own our own business. No one has bought anything for two months and we are going under. I cry all the time and struggle to believe that God will provide. It is the 11th hour and we have no money. I have three small kids so I struggle that he has forsaken us.


Jack Wellman September 14, 2016 at 7:53 pm

Have you talked with your pastor at your church. Some churches have benevolent committees. No Salvation Army nearby? They are a great resource too, better than the Red Cross. I can only pray for you other than that, and hope others will join with me in prayer.


Lizelle September 18, 2016 at 10:10 pm

Christine the Bible has many verses on God’s promise towards us. I suggest that you fast and prayerfully remind the Lord of His promises. Also ask for forgiveness if you have sinned against His will. I will pray for you and your family. Stay strong and remain in prayer and stand firm in faith.


Robin September 20, 2016 at 9:55 am

God bless you Josh! Thanks so much for sharing these scriptures. I pray God will continue to grant your family Peace, Grace and Honor.

Thanks to the Lord for this blessed day. Hello and good afternoon.

Could you please pray for me to be able to buy a house? For a financial break through as I have no savings /money to afford a deposit for a mortgage? Will continue to pray to God. Thank you.


Sylvia February 2, 2017 at 9:24 pm

I have breast cancer, balance problems due to a hammer toe, high cholesterol. off and on skin breakouts due to surgery. diabetes, and disagree with the terms I have to live under in order to get support financially and otherwise. I struggle with a bad habit to the point where I have almost given up trying to do anything about it. I figure it is now up to God to do something about it as I don’t have the same desire to give it up as I once did. Please pray that I will start spending more time in the bible and prayer and also spend more time doing other things instead of doing things that are not in line with his will. That I will desire the Lord and what he wants me to do more and more. Please pray for my deliverance and a miracle of God. Also pray for healing. Thank you and God bless you.


Moses February 7, 2017 at 5:00 pm

Claiming God’s promises over the lives of my son, daughter and my life – We are burdened by Satan’s torments day by day and nothing seems to be moving to the right direction day by day – I am almost giving up. I am overwhelmed but comforted by God’s promises.

Manya Wilson November 16, 2017 at 11:59 pm

Loving it. Praying for God to open the doors for me to get a job so that I can be a better provider for my family. I know that God will not put on us more than we can bare. So with that; it will be in done in his time, and not my time. I want to move to Denver, Co, but I have some questions, and want to have enough money to put down on a home of my choice.


Mario Esquibel November 19, 2017 at 11:13 am

jaquetta February 20, 2018 at 11:14 am

Please pray for me. I have to have a surgery – hysterectomy, and rectocele, and possibly on another area in the next month. I’ve been so upset and scared over this. I worry about the long term of the repair. I also, worry about the surgery. I have never had a surgery before. I love God and I know he is with me, but the devil will steal my peace at times. Please pray for me. I need to have peace, comfort and reassurance that my situation will all work out for the good. Thank you and God Bless You.


Jack Wellman February 20, 2018 at 1:18 pm

STEVE COLLINS May 2, 2018 at 2:50 am

I would like prayer. I am 61, disabled, on Soc. Sec. I have a small business which has been slow for several months. I am about ready to lose my home and will be on the street, homeless. I have no equity so I can’t sell and have anything there. I am a Christian, and God has miraclously answered my prayers for work up until now. I am very depressed and discouraged. I have nowhere to go. I cannot move too far because of my doctors I go to. I am also in constant pain every day because of my injuries, divorced some 15 years ago so I am alone. Please pray for me everyone, I am new to this site, but it looks like there are very sincere Christian people on here like myself. Thank you and God Bless you all.
