When Jesus died on the cross, He exchanged His life for our life, so that His Father could become our Father (John 20:17). In today's promise, we read that Jesus tells the chu...

In the last few devotionals, I have been talking a lot about love and faith. Today I want to talk about hope. If we have...

If we don't believe that He exists, it will be difficult for us to cultivate a living, loving relationship with Him. Our very...

When we ask God for anything that is in accordance with His will, He hears us. Our Father is a good father who delights in giving His kids good gifts (James 1:17) and He is ...

His whole life is about family. In Ephesians 3:14-15 Paul the Apostle says... 14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, (ESV). God understands that we were created to be i...

When we are convinced that He is loving and kind and gentle, we will be able to risk again and entrust our hearts fully to Him. If we are not yet convinced of His goodness, we will struggle to trust Him. <BR> <BR> I b...

Galatians 5:1 says that it is for freedom's sake that Christ has set us free. In John 8:36, Jesus Himself speaks of the freedom He has for us when He said... If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. (WEB) <BR> <BR> Wherever G...

In this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reveals some of the values of His kingdom. Nine times He says that people are blessed in circumstances that would seem opposite to what the world system would see as blessed. <B... Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:39:50 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5877139 John 10:29 (WEB) <BR> My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. <BR> No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand. <BR> <BR> Promise #47: I will keep you safe because no one can snatch you out of My hand. <BR> <BR> I love the picture that Jesus paints in this passage of Scripture. In order to better appreciate what Jesus is saying, let's read a broader view of this promise found in John 10:27-30... 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they foll...

It has been recited in times of celebration, in times of loss and and everything in between. The author of this psalm was King David who had a good understanding of what it meant to be a shepherd. As a boy, David learned to care for the flock under his care so when he made the statement that The...

This popular chapter of the Bible is often used as the Scriptu...

(NLT) God is a safe place and a strong fortress where your enemies cannot reach you. I believe the more we can believe this, the more we will find peace and rest in ... Thu, 12 Feb 2015 11:56:10 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5873827 Psalm 91:15 (WEB) <BR> He will call on me, and I will answer him. <BR> I will be with him in trouble. <BR> I will deliver him, and honor him. <BR> <BR> Promise #42: Call on Me when you are in trouble and I will rescue you. <BR> <BR> When we are in trouble, God is ready and waiting to help us. We don't have to try and convince Him to come to our aid, for that is what good fathers do for their kids. No matter what the situation, good parents are always there to help their children when... Wed, 11 Feb 2015 11:30:22 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5872500 Proverbs 3:5-6 (WEB) <BR> 5 Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own understanding. <BR> 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. <BR> <BR> Promise #40: Trust in Me with all your heart and I will guide you. <BR> <BR> Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of those Scripture passages that have meant a great deal to me personally over the years. As a person who has had the tendency to trust in his own resources, the idea that I don't have to lean on my ... Mon, 9 Feb 2015 11:56:25 EST 365promises.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5871345 2 Corinthians 6:18 (WEB) <BR> I will be to you a Father. <BR> You will be to me sons and daughters,’ <BR> says the Lord Almighty.” <BR> <BR> Promise #38: I will be a real Father to you. <BR> <BR> In my opinion, this one promise summarizes all New Testament revelation. God's desire for all of us is that He would be our real Father. That is why Jesus came to the earth two thousand years ago... To make the way for each one of us to come home to His Dad (John 14:6). <BR> <BR> Everything that ...

I have swept away your sins like a cloud. I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free.” (NLT) God has swept a...

I don't know if you ha...

While this might be something that we all can agree on, do we live each day with the confidence that our God and Father really is the ruler of heaven and earth? <B...

Not one thing has failed of it. <BR> <BR> Promise #31: Not one of My promises will ever fail you. <BR> <BR> I would encourage you to read the entire chapter of Joshua 23 when you get a chance. This is Joshua's last chance to s...

In verse 43, He tells His disciples that one day the righteous (those who are in right relationship with God) will shine like the sun in their Father's k...

The simple answer is that since we are part of God's royal family, we all get to wear a crown. Romans 8:16-17 says.... 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God;...

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (WEB) He res...

The Lord protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me. (NLT) In Luke 18:15-17, Jesus tells His disciples that the kingdom of God belongs to little children and unless they change and become like little children themselves, they would not...

He is always looking to protect those who cannot protect themselves. That is just part of His character. In today's promise, Psalm 146:9 says that God looks after foreigners in a strange land and helps ...

Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, <BR> 5 doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, <BR> takes no account of evil; 6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; <BR> 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. <BR> <BR> Promise #24: My love will persevere through every situation. <BR> <BR> The Greek word for love u...

Sadly, bad things do happen to good people. We all experie...

I think that most of us have lots of anxious thoughts to deal with. Why do we worry? Probably because we think that we will somehow change the outcome into something better by obsessing over it. Jesus tells us in Matt...

God is our defender and He promises to shield us and deliver us from the hand of the wicked. The New Living Translation says Psalm 27:10 this way... You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of his godly people and ...

I would hide and then they would try to find me. The game is pretty simple and lots of fun. The whole point of this exercise was that they would eventually find me... and that was the b...

If we believe that we will be rejected by God if we stumble and fall, then we may not be willing to risk at all. I love today's promise because it clearly shows that it doesn't bother the Lord...

For he is sent by God. He speaks God’s words, for God gives him the Spirit without limit.

In this one chapter, King David draws from his experience of being a shepherd boy to build an analogy of the Lord's shepherding heart towards us. In John 10:11, Jesus clearly makes the connection to Psalm 23 by telling us that He is the Great Shep...

Are you excited to think of what is ahead or does the thought of the future cause you to be anxious? With an uncertain economy, wars and rumors of wars, etc., it is easy to feel anxious and uncertain a...

Just think of that for a moment. You are an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus (Romans 8:17). Every promise that God made to Abr...
