Busy, busy, busy. There is so much to do in too little time to do it. Rushing from work ...

When you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you not hide yourself from your own flesh? 8 Then your light shall break forth as the morning, and your healing shall spring forth speedily; and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of Yahweh shall be your rear guard. <BR> <BR> Promise #204: If you share with the needy, My glory will guard yo...

It is really quite an amazing sight to see. They are so sure-footed that they can walk on ledges so thin that it would seem impossible in the natural. <BR> <BR>...

It is interesting to note that the armor does not belong to us, but it belongs to God. It is His armor. <BR> <BR> He...

The Amplified Bible says 'make a covering over them'. When I think of this promise, I imagine that Papa God s...

I chose this particular photo because it represents an overwhelming sense of being surrounded by an unstoppable, never-ending power. I imagin...

Imagine a love that is complete in every way. The love of a father, the love of a mother, the love of a friend, the love of a brother, the love of a spouse, etc. Wha...

Eat the fat, drink the sweet, <BR> and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared; <BR> for this day is holy to our Lord. <BR> Don’t be grieved; for the joy of Yahweh is your strength.” <BR> <BR> Promise #196: Do not be sad for My joy is your strength. <BR> <BR> In this passage of Scripture, Israel had assembled to listen to the Word of the Lord. It sounds like it was a very intense time and people were weeping in such...

In an orphan world system that makes people feel all alone and responsible to claw and scratch for everything they get, t...

Since I have the luxury of living within 15 miles of this great natural wonder, it is easy for me to go there anytime I like. The volumes of water that pass over both the American Falls ...

He is the kindest, most loving, most forgiving Father ever. In today's promise, the KJV Bible says the He delighteth in mercy. This means that God actually lov...

When we were growing up, he blazed the trail ahead of me in most everything in life... School, our parents, work, friends, even girls. Though we did go through many of the things that other siblings go throu...

In the preceding verses, Jesus encourages people to keep on asking, keep on seeking and keep on... Tue, 8 Jul 2014 10:02:48 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733644 Jeremiah 31:3 (WEB) <BR> Yahweh appeared of old to me, saying, <BR> Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: <BR> therefore with loving kindness have I drawn you. <BR> <BR> Promise #188: My love for you will last forever. <BR> <BR> What does it mean for God to love us with an everlasting love? My dear friend, Jack Winter, once told me that being loved with an everlasting love meant that there was never a time in all eternity when I wasn't loved. I was loved before the foundation of... Mon, 7 Jul 2014 09:02:50 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732961 Exodus 15:26 (WEB) <BR> and he said, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you, which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am Yahweh who heals you.” <BR> <BR> Promise #187: I am the Lord your God who heals all your diseases. <BR> <BR> This promise takes place at the waters of Marah, where the Israelites came looking to... Sun, 6 Jul 2014 08:36:35 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732393 Psalm 94:14 (WEB) <BR> For Yahweh won’t reject his people, <BR> neither will he forsake his inheritance. <BR> <BR> Promise #186: I will not abandon My own inheritance. <BR> <BR> My natural children are my children for life. No matter what they do, they are still my kids. While parents aren't always happy with the decisions their children make, that does not change the fact that they are still part of the family. Today's promise is a good reminder that the Lord will never reject us because ... Sat, 5 Jul 2014 09:19:28 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731852 Psalm 68:5 (WEB) <BR> A father of the fatherless, <BR> and a defender of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. <BR> <BR> Promise #185: I am a father to the fatherless and I defend the cause of widows. <BR> <BR> It is such a comfort to know that God promises to be a father to the fatherless. In this fatherless generation that we live in, there has never been a greater need for a Father's love than right now. With almost 50% of homes in many western countries ending up in divorce, there... Fri, 4 Jul 2014 10:01:30 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730406 <BR> Deuteronomy 7:9 (WEB) <BR> Know therefore that Yahweh your God, he is God, the faithful God, <BR> who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him <BR> and keep his commandments to a thousand generations, <BR> <BR> Promise #183: I am faithful to keep My covenant of kindness to a thousand generations. <BR> <BR> How long is a generation? Some say 40 years, others say 100 years. Whatever the number, multiply it by one thousand! Our God and Father promises to be faithful to... Wed, 2 Jul 2014 09:15:18 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730198 <BR> <BR> Psalm 33:6 10:36 (WEB) <BR> By Yahweh’s word, the heavens were made; <BR> all their army by the breath of his mouth. <BR> <BR> Promise #181: I made the heavens by My Word and I breathed the stars into existence. <BR> <BR> Our God and Father is so big that He created the heavens just by a word! He is so powerful that just a breath from His mouth caused all of the stars to come into being. When you think of this promise, take time to reflect on the bigness of our God! <BR> <BR> S... Tue, 1 Jul 2014 23:34:03 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729005 Hebrews 10:36 (WEB) <BR> For you need endurance so that, having done the will of God, <BR> you may receive the promise. <BR> <BR> Promise #181: If you persist and do My will, you will receive what I have promised. <BR> <BR> The KJV Bible says that we need patience, the NLT Bible says that we need patient endurance. The NIV Bible says that we need to persevere. In Hebrews 12:1-2, we are called to run the race uniquely marked out for each one of us. In light of eternity, it might be just a ...

He boldly proclaims that there is a crown of life/ri...

As a father myself, I know how grieved I have felt when I have seen my children not getting along. A father's heart is for peace and harmony for his kids. <BR> <BR> When I think of this promi... Sun, 22 Jun 2014 12:37:54 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723110 Romans 2:4 (WEB) <BR> Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, <BR> not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? <BR> <BR> Promise #172: My goodness will lead you to a change of heart. <BR> <BR> I love this promise. Romans 2:4 basically says it is the very goodness of God that leads people to repent. Many times, when we think of repentance, we think of it as a shame based response to some form of judgment in our lives. But really, it means t...

We live in an orphan world with orphan values. Jesus told us that if people would reject Him, then they would...

We do not have to be fearful or paranoid about this, but it is helpful to be aware of his opposition. In this promise found in Isaiah, God makes the pr... Wed, 18 Jun 2014 10:32:29 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5719749 Isaiah 43:2 (WEB) <BR> When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; <BR> and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. <BR> When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, <BR> and flame will not scorch you. <BR> <BR> Promise #168: When you walk through the fires of adversity, you will not be burned. <BR> <BR> I took this photo when my wife and I were in New Zealand a few years back. These volcanic geysers continually release boiling hot water onto the earth's sur...

No matter how big you think, God's plans for you are way bigger! The NLT Bible translates the bign...

Today's promise talks about how God shares His secrets with those who fear Him. It is important that we know that the word 'fear' isn't intended to mean that we are afraid of God, rather that we revere Him and deeply respect His awesome power. <BR> <BR> This pro...

They are filled with awe about their surroundings and continually asking their parents questions about what, where, when, why, how, etc. I love to see the interaction between these little ones ...

For most certainly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. <BR> <BR> Promise #164: Nothing will be impossible for those who have even a little faith. <BR> <BR> In this promise, Jesus tells us th...

God is saying that anything good that you receive in your life comes directly from Him. That beautiful sunrise, the twinkle in a loved one's eye, even that raise at work. All good ...

This is not an option, it is a command. Another version of the Bible says that it is for the very sake of freedom that Christ has set us free. God loves it when we a...

Since these two anchors point in polar opposite directions for all eternity, I would say that there is no greater way to express the farthest distance than east from west. I love how God has used this analogy to illustrate the promise o...

Some of us feel like this because people have let us down in the past while others just don't live with a deep sense of belonging to anything or anyone. <BR> <B...

I am continually amazed to see the ongoing analogies throughout the Bible where God wants us to know that He is really a Father to us! Not just a 'father... Thu, 5 Jun 2014 10:01:59 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5710915 Psalm 145:16 (WEB) <BR> You open your hand, <BR> and satisfy the desire of every living thing. <BR> <BR> Promise #155: When I open My hand, I provide for all that I have created. <BR> <BR> Just think of this promise. When God simply opens His hand, He provides for all that He created! Sometimes when I ask for daily provision, it is like I am doing so expecting some big miracle. But the truth of the matter is that fathers provide for their children. Since God is the perfect Father, He has m...
