That’s a Promise!

What He promises

Since the Bible is replete with God’s promises, Herbert Lockyer had no problem finding material for his book, All the Promises of the Bible.

God’s promises fall into three categories: 1) those already fulfilled (e. g., Joshua 23:14), 2) those now being fulfilled (e.g., Matthew 6:33), and 3) those yet to be fulfilled (e.g., Acts 1:11).

God’s promises are guaranteed for three reasons: 1) God never lies, 2) He has the power to fulfill His promises, and 3) He is faithful to do what He says He will do.

No wonder Peter can speak of “His precious and magnificent promises” (1 Peter 1:4).

Have you found that to be true in your own life?

How we respond

God’s promises are for those who respond to His grace with obedient faith.

Do we qualify?
