The Bible is filled with promises that God has given to us to strengthen us in times of trouble. One of my personal favorite promises is:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38–39 (NIV)

What the Bible Promise Means to Me

These verses are a reminder to me that no matter what I do, what I have done, or where I am, God is always there, and He loves me to a degree that I cannot fathom. The devil can never do anything to separate me from God. The only way Satan can accomplish his goal is if I allow him into my life, and even then, God will be there waiting for me to call upon Him. This also means that someday there will be no more sin ever again, that Jesus will make this world anew. I will never be separated from Him again.

The following is one of my all-time favorite Bible promises:

“He has told you, O man [and Woman], what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:8 (ESV)

What the Bible Promise Means to Me

I appreciate the simplicity in these calls to action as a Christian. It’s not complicated; it’s not a rule book 200 pages long. God wants me, His child, to be just, to love/show mercy, and to be humble. That’s it. 

By Lesley C.

My favorite Bible promise is:

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)

Bible Promise Impact on Me

This was the first Bible promise I memorized as a new Christian. It still gives me comfort and confidence today. We have no idea what to pray for most times, or even how to pray, but this verse gives assurance that God is on our side, and He wants the very best for us. The trials are allowed to grow our character, so we can be fit for what our heavenly Father wants to give us. Oh, that we would give our wills over to Him so that He could mold us to match His perfect will and plans for our lives. We can and should trust Him fully.
