Promises can mean very little these days. We
hear promises by our politicians and advertising
companies that might sound appealing, yet

does God make a promise and let us down. He
makes promises of predictions, provisions and
personal promises that give to us the blessing
The believer’s assurance does not depend upon
outward circumstances nor inward feelings. It

because God is for us.
Evidence for this is seen in the way God gave
us His Son. With such promises God has given
to us in His Word, we need to take heart and
be uplifted because there is nothing in this
world that can take us away from the
assurance that we are His children.
Yours in Christ
