There aren’t enough words to describe the calmness that we feel whenever we bask in the magnificence of our Lord’s love. No other relationship can ever match the sureness of His promises to us. The bible states:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
How fortunate for us, His children, to receive this gift – the gift of everlasting life. It is a priceless gift from a cost so great that it would take sacrificing His son in exchange for our salvation. Wouldn’t it be a spectacle to sing hymns and praises, side by side with the angels in the heavenly realm after we fulfill our purpose on earth?
There may be times when we doubt His words each time we encounter trials and tribulations. The purpose of knowing his vow is for us to be steadfast and be strong enough to endure the challenges of this world.
What are some of God’s promises to us?
“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.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Our Lord reassures us of the path He laid out for us, even before we came to being. As a loving Father, he guarantees a favorable outcome as we abide by His will. No father would ever desire destruction for his children. All we have to do is follow His voice and completely trust in His goodness if this is the case. Everything that He ever lets us face has a purpose, and it is always for our good.
“Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.’” (Luke 18:16)
Evangelization should not be limited to adults. All the more, our children need to know of God’s promises. Let your kids read a storybook about relationship with God or bring them with you to church. They deserve to know about the gift of salvation that we have inherited through the blood of our savior, Jesus Christ, and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to their innocent hearts.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 113:105)
God’s covenant transcends the vastness of time, for He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End (Revelation 22:13). He is the light to the world, the light to the lost. Whenever we fall short of what God calls us to do, His love and mercy bring us back to the path of the righteous. Our sensitivity to the Holy Ghost’s frequency gets amplified as we cultivate our connection with Him.
“… and we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Blessings abound to those who serve our Jehovah with a willing and cheerful heart, for He sees all things and knows our desires. How can we not love our creator for all the goodness given to us? He has appointed us dominion over this lovely planet, over all His creation. The Lord has also given us unique gifts to develop and use for His glory. It wouldn’t hurt to enjoy these beautiful treasures while we fulfill His purpose in our lives.
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
As we call for God in times of weakness, he guarantees infinite energy since He is the source of all things. We will not tire, nor grow weary, for He will carry us as in times of trouble. He understands what we go through since He, too, was not exempted from suffering when He came down from heaven and lived among us. What we have to do is to trust in the Almighty’s infinite grace and mercy to carry the mission He has given to His people.
