54 Promises God has Made to Me.

54 Promises God has Made to Me.

"Not one of all the Lord's good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled." Joshua 21:45

While reading through the OT book of Joshua, I ran across the verse above. I asked myself, "What precise promises has God made to me?" I pondered this, and began a list (initially from memory, then flipping through the pages of His Word). In one sitting, I came up with 54. May these 54 promises comfort (and challenge?) your heart today, as they do mine. For each of the 54, I've taken the liberty of writing it in the first person, so each promise more effectually penetrates my heart. Here we go – 54 Promises – just the tip of the iceberg!
