God's Promises

by Barbara Latta

When the flood ended, God put His rainbow in the sky and told Noah it was a sign of His promise to never destroy the earth again with a flood. A rainbow is just another facet of God’s creative ingenuity, something with every color in the palette. I love the way He shows off!

Every time we see a rainbow we can remember not just that promise, but all the promises He has blessed us with. This one appeared after a rainstorm and was a double rainbow which I haven’t seen too often. Part of the second one is visible in the photo.

Here are some of His eternal provisions:

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you: I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26).

“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:12.)

“He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea” (Micah 7:19).

“He said, the things which are impossible with men are possible with God” (Luke 18:27).

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9).

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

These are just a few of the many thousands of promises in the Bible.  Which ones are your favorites?
