The Promises of God

Happy Sunday, ladies! It’s hard to believe this is the last Sunday in October. This has certainly been a year for the record books, hasn’t it?

I don’t think any of us will forget 2020 and how it has changed our lives in so many ways. When I began to get weary about this year, I turn my focus on the promises of God.

Max Lucado writes in his book, UNSHAKEABLE HOPE:

People of the Promise have an advantage. They determine to ponder, proclaim, and pray the promises of God.

They are like Abraham, who “didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong” (Rom. 4:20 the message).

They filter life through the promises of God.

  • When problems surface, they can be heard telling themselves, “But God said . . .”
  • When struggles threaten, they can be seen flipping through Scripture, saying, “I think God said something about this.”
  • When comforting others, they’re prone to ask, “Do you know God’s promise on this topic?”

The promises of God serve as an apothecary shelf of remedies. Just as the doctor might prescribe a medication for your body, God has given promises for your heart.

I love that! God has given us promises for our heart. Today if you are hurting, if your soul is weary, would you turn to Jesus and cling to His promises?

Determine today to ponder, proclaim, and pray the promises of God!

This is a beautiful rendition of How Great Thou Art. I get chill bumps every time I listen to it!

  1. I love the quote, “Abraham plunged” into God’s promises. No more tiptoeing around, we need to plunge right in! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Happy Sunday Cyndi! Love the Talbots long cardigan both you and Jolynne wore this week. I bought it and am amazed how soft it is. Question- Do you still take collagen daily? I’m thinking of starting to and was wondering what your opinion was. Wishing you a blessed day!

  2. Thank you Cyndi. I loved that song and it brought tears to my eyes. I am so afraid for our country, all the hate and divisiveness. I also am facing some tough health challenges and your messages give me hope. I wish I lived by you so I could attend your church. Thank you again and God bless!

  3. What an encouraging post! I’m enthused to go & worship this morning! And that soup recipe! I’m going to try it this week….better save all my calories for dinner ☺️. Thanks for being a light in this darkening world, Cyndi!!

  4. Goodmorning Cyndi
    Thanks so much for your Sunday morning posts. I am struggling this morning as my mother went home to be with our Savior this past week from complications from covid. My heart is completely broken. I am clinging to the promises ofGod which is the only thing helping me get by. My father has been a Pastor for 43 years and he is so list without her by his side. But he too is clinging to Christ. Please say a prayer for the Cash family and again I love your post.

  6. Thank you for the nice devotional. I was weary this last week. Still not back in regular church services but online. Just not the same and miss fellowship and worship together. Was really getting me down the lack of social interaction we have, trying to keep our social circle small. I go to His word during these times and He is faithful. 🙂 Just feels like sooo many going about their lives like nothing going on and I just can’t get there. Don’t feel safe. But tired of people judging saying you have to have faith not fear. I have faith but at the same time want to be safe and keep my family safe. Do you know where you caught your covid?

  7. Do you know how to specifically google the promises of God? I haven’t been enough in the Word. I listen to a lot of teachings. Tips on ice breakers? Maybe it’s simply that…google “promises of God”!?
