Verse: Hebrews 6:13-17

When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, 14 “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.” 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. 16 Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. 17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.

If you google "how many promises are there in the Bible" you'll find answers ranging from 2000 to 7000 promises!!! That's a lot of promises. Here are a few:

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” Jer 29:11

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Heb 13:5

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Prov 3:5-6

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. " Matthew 11:28

When you take a moment to stop and think about it, the love God has for you and me is overwhelming. All of these promises are flowing from his great love for us. 

Today if you feel forgotten, or alone, or insignificant—know this—God sees you, he loves you, and he is FOR you. Find a promise of God that speaks to where you are today, and let that promise fill your heart.

Thank you, Jesus, for your great love for me. Let my heart be full of your promises to me.
