What Are The Promises Of God?

There’s an old hymn we used to sing in church that went like this;
“Standing on the promises of Christ my King;
Through eternal ages let His praises ring.
Glory in the highest I will shout and sing;
Standing on the promises of God.”
Well, what are the promises of God? In Joshua 23:14, Joshua said to the people of Israel; “Soon I will die, going the way of everything on earth. Deep in your hearts you know that every promise of the LORD your God has come true. Not a single one has failed!”
What are the promises of God?
First, Provision. Paul said, My God shall supply all your needs…” (Phil. 4:19).
Second, God has promised Protection. “…I have commanded you…for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”(Deut 31:6)
God has promised direction. “…when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth” (Jn. 16:13)
God has promised forgiveness of sins. “If you confess your sin, He is faithful & righteous to forgive us our sins” (I John 1:9)
God has promised meaning “I have come that they might have life” (Jn 10:10)
These are some of the promises of God. Rest in them.
