but my words shall not pass away.
Sometimes the greatness of those treasured promises get lost in our daily routines. The demands of work or finding a job in this economy, raising godly kids in twisted culture and keeping the bill collector from knocking down the door can steal our attention away from the very reason why we can smile with hope through it all.
In case it's been a while since you've heard these wonderful words from the Faithful God of Glory to his children, please take a moment for a Promise Break...
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Ps. 23:4-6)
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalms 37:4)
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. (Matthew 10:39)
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thess. 4:16-18)
