Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 20, 2011 (Promises of God)

Promises of God

“God has not promised skies always blue,
flower-strewn pathways all our life through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
rest for the labor, light for the way;
grace for the trials, help from above,
unfailing sympathy, undying love.”
- Annie J. Flint

“The Bible is full of God’s promises
to provide for us spiritually and materially,
to never forsake us,
to give us peace in times of difficult circumstances,
to cause all circumstances
to work together for our good,
and finally to bring us safely home to glory.
Not one of those promises
is dependent upon our performance.
They are all dependent on the grace of God
given to us through Jesus Christ.”
- Jerry Bridges
