God’s Promises are Bigger than Our Circumstances

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” 2 Corinthians 1:20

We live in a world where there are many difficulties and changing demographics.  But, God’s promises are greater than any of these! Whatever impossibilities we are facing, God and His Word are greater!!  

“With man this is impossible. With God, all things are possible!”   Matthew 19:26

And, “Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.”  1 John 4:4

These are powerfully, crystal-clear statements about God’s power, and faithfulness to carry to completion His will and purpose for our lives!!


Think of His promises that are so very personal for you today:

1.)  The Bible is Inspired in 2 Timothy 3:16.  It’s not just a ‘Good Book”, nor is it the thoughts of man.  It’s entirely, and eternally inspired by God, Himself!  Actually, the Bible is Yahweh’s or Jehovah’s personal love letter to His child.
2.)  In Isaiah 40:29-31, God promises to give power to the weak; and strength to the powerless. It says that even the youth and young men will get tired and weary.  But, if we wait on Him, and believe His promise, He will bring it to pass.

3.)  In Romans 8:37-39, the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul, describes a long list of adversaries that can plague the Christian. The conclusion?  Not only does He give us the Victory over all these things (see list), but, none of those things shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus!!

In Closing, 1 Thessalonians 5:24 and Philippians 1:6 kind of give the same principle:

God is faithful to perform and complete, by His power, the work that he started in our lives; and individually fulfill every promise that concerns the building, and forming of Christ’s character within me.  It just means He’s going to do it because He’s a good God, and He loves us for Christ’s sake!  This is how we should view every one of the almost 8000 promises in the Bible!!
In Jesus’ Name,
