THE PROMISES OF GOD

Articles
A PROMISES OF GOD SAMPLING Consider: 1. The Promises of God are “great and precious”. (2 Pe. 1:4) “All the Promises of God are ‘Yes!’  and ‘Amen!’ in Christ.” (2 Cor. 1:20). And we, of course, are in Him (1 Cr. 1:30; 6:17) and therefore co-heirs of all the Promises. (Rom. 8:17; Gal. 3:16, 26-29.) All the Promises to the Righteous are to us who are in Him, because He is our righteousness. (1 Cr. 1:30) And they are all inherited, every one, through faith and patience! (Heb. 6:12) 2. Satan is our enemy and is behind many of the afflictions we suffer, even though they often have a human face, like the Giants stationed to prevent the Israelites from entering into the Promised Land. Read these Promises of deliverance and protection with the World (1 Jhn. 5:5), Satan (I Jhn 5:19), and sickness in mind and body as our Enemies, so they will make sense to you. The Psalms below were written mainly by David who was being constantly faced with impending earthly perils; therefore, many of the promises only made sense to David to the extent they referred to imminent rescue from his many troubles and afflictions. 2. The constant message is that all are blessed who take refuge in the Lord – why? Because He can be trusted to do exactly as He says when we look to Him with patience and perseverance, believing Him to be faithful and honest. (Heb. 11:6) 2. George Mueller has said: "I would carefully, quietly, deliberately examine and see whether what I was trusting for was something in accordance with His promises in his written word. Then if I found it was, the amount of difficulties would be no hindrance to my trust." The Promises – The Psalms Psa 116:1 I love the LORD, because He hears My voice {and} my supplications. Psa 116:2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call {upon Him} as long as I live. Psa 116:3 The cords of death encompassed me And the terrors of Sheol came upon me; I found distress and sorrow. Psa 116:4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I beseech You, save my life!" Psa 116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate. Psa 116:6 The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Psa 3:3 But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. Psa 3:4 I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah. Psa 3:5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustains me. Psa 3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about. Psa 4:3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly man for Himself; The LORD hears when I call to Him. Psa 4:8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety. Psa 5:11 But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You. Psa 5:12 For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield. Psa 7:10 My shield is with God, Who saves the upright in heart. Psa 9:9 The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble; Psa 9:10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psa 9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion; Declare among the peoples His deeds. Psa 9:12 For He who requires blood remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the afflicted. Psa 16:8 I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psa 17:6 I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech. Psa 17:7 Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up {against them.} Psa 17:8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings Psa 17:9 From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me. Psa 18:1 "I love You, O LORD, my strength." Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psa 18:3 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies. Psa 18:4 The cords of death encompassed me, And the torrents of ungodliness terrified me. Psa 18:5 The cords of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. Psa 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears. Psa 18:30 As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. Psa 18:31 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God, Psa 18:32 The God who girds me with strength And makes my way blameless? Psa 18:33 He makes my feet like hinds' {feet,} And sets me upon my high places. Psa 18:34 He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. Psa 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread? Psa 27:2 When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. Psa 27:3 Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me, In {spite of} this I shall be confident. Psa 27:5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. …Psa 27:13 {I would have despaired} unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Psa 27:14 Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD. Psa 28:6 Blessed be the LORD, Because He has heard the voice of my supplication. Psa 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. Psa 28:8 The LORD is their strength, And He is a saving defense to His anointed. Psa 28:9 Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever. Psa 31:1 In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed; In Your righteousness deliver me. Psa 31:2 Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. Psa 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name's sake You will lead me and guide me. Psa 31:4 You will pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength. Psa 31:5 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O LORD, God of truth. …Psa 31:19 How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of men! Psa 31:20 You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. ... Psa 31:24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD. Psa 32:7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.  Psa 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, Psa 33:19 To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.  Psa 33:20 Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. Psa 33:21 For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name. Psa 33:22 Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You. Psa 34:4 I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. Psa 34:5 ... Psa 34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him And saved him out of all his troubles. Psa 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them. Psa 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! Psa 34:9 O fear the LORD, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want. Psa 34:10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing. Psa 35:9 And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; It shall exult in His salvation. Psa 35:10 All my bones will say, "LORD, who is like You, Who delivers the afflicted from him who is too strong for him, And the afflicted and the needy from him who robs him?" Psa 36:5 Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness {reaches} to the skies. ...And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. Psa 37:3 Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Psa 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light And your judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him Psa 37:23 The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way. 24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand. Psa 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble. Psa 37:40 The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.   Psa 40:2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm Psa 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Psa 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Psa 46:3 Though its waters roar {and} foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. Psa 48:14 For such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will guide us until death. Psa 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me." Psa 54:4 Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul. Psa 54:5 He will recompense the evil to my foes; Destroy them in Your faithfulness. Psa 54:6 Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O LORD, for it is good. Psa 54:7 For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked {with satisfaction} upon my enemies. Psa 56:3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. Psa 56:4 In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can {mere} man do to me? Psa 57:1 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. Psa 57:2 I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes {all things} for me. Psa 57:3 He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me. Selah. God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth. Psa 59:16 But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress. Psa 59:17 O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness. Psa 61:1 Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. Psa 61:2 From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psa 61:3 For You have been a refuge for me, A tower of strength against the enemy. Psa 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psa 63:6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, Psa 63:7 For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. Psa 63:8 My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me. Psa 68:20 God is to us a God of deliverances; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death. Psa 71:1 In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed. Psa 71:2 In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; Incline Your ear to me and save me. Psa 71:3 Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come; You have given commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress. Psa 71:4 Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the grasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man, Psa 71:5 For You are my hope; O Lord GOD, ... Psa 72:11 And let all kings bow down before him, All nations serve him. Psa 72:12 For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help, The afflicted also, and him who has no helper. Psa 72:13 He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save. Psa 72:14 He will rescue their life from oppression and violence, And their blood will be precious in his sight; Psa 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Psa 86:7 In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, For You will answer me. Psa 86:8 There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours. Psa 91:2 I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!" Psa 91:3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence. Psa 91:4 He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark...
