GOD'S PROMISES AND URBAN LEGENDS
Do you really believe that being godly is great gain and not financial gain, but something that really matters and lasts? If you believed that, wouldn’t it change your life?

God's Promise to Christ
There are many truths to grasp in Isaiah 53. A truth worth grasping today is found in Isaiah 53:10, "But the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief. If He would render Himself as a guilt offering. He will see His offspring, He will prolong His Days, and

16. Our Thinking vs. God’s Promises.
a. We say- It’s impossible. God says- All things are possible with Me.
b. We- I can’t do it. God- You can do all things through Christ.
c. We- I’m too tired. God- Come to Me, I will give you rest.
d. We- I’m always worried and frustrated. God- Cast all

On God’s promises, C.H. Spurgeon said;
“God never gives his children a promise which he does not intend them to use. There are some promises in the Bible which I have never yet used, but I am well assured that there will come times of trial and trouble when I shall find that that poor despised

In JAMES 5:15, God promises us that a prayer offered in true faith will even make the sick person well. Let’s take that model of prayer and hold it up against the way we pray today. Most of us, being honest, pray something like this: ‘God I want you to make me well.’ And then in the back of our

God promised peace to those whom His favor rests. Let me close with the words from a hymn that Annie Johnson Flint wrote: "What God Hath Promised"
God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,

What does God promise us? He will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. It goes back to the same theme throughout. The LORD is watching, no matter whether you’re coming or going - He’s watching. I’d compare it to walking through a mall

LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD

WISE MEN SEARCHING
In Biblical times wise men searched for the savior. They searched by looking for his star. When they found the star, they knew that God's promise had been fulfilled.
Today, wise men are still searching. They are searching, not necessarily for a

FAITH AND PROMISE
When something is promised, you have not seen it happen yet, have you? If I promise my wife that I'm going to clean out the basement, there's no proof that you can see. There's only my word. That promise is the only evidence it will happen. And I may prove unreliable for one
