Clinging to God’s Promises

Read | Luke 24:13-49

The Bible is a goldmine of promises for believers. These are declarations of God’s gracious intention to give us a gift. During any season, but especially in hard times, they provide an anchor for our souls. They give us hope, enabling us to be courageous and bold when facing life’s storms.

But many individuals do not rely on God’s assurances. There are two reasons for this. First, far too many people are unaware of His promises. Second, some simply do not believe them to be true. A lot of believers can quote Scripture, but when they face a daunting trial—like failing health or job loss—their confidence waivers and doubt prevails.

If we’re unaware of all that Scripture guarantees us, we can Read and study, but we can’t make ourselves believe. Faith is a gift from almighty God. Luke 24 documents two times that people came face to face with Jesus but failed to recognize Him. He had to open their spiritual eyes before they could truly see. The same is true of our faith: it is impossible without the Holy Spirit.

Jesus gives believers countless assurances in the Scriptures—guarantees of protection, hope, eternal security, counsel, and guidance, to name a few. Do you trust Him?

As you Read Scripture, ask the Holy Spirit to point out applicable promises for your life. Study, memorize, and meditate upon them. Our Father wants you to claim these truths. Then, when trials arise, you’ll have a rock-solid foundation on which to stand. You can trust that God will do all He says.
