the promises of God

“Don’t you forget what He said…”

Promises of God

PSALMS
— “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers” (1:1-3).
— “Blessed are all who take refuge in him” (2:12).
— “Know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord will hear when I call to him” (4:3).
— “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you” (9:9-10).
— “The Lord is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face” (11:7).
— “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you” (32:8).

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy” (145:17-20).

PROVERBS
