His Promises

(A Poem)

People promise just about anything;
But most promises will be broken.
We mean well, but things happen
And we cannot always keep our promises.

Jesus promised that He will be back for us.
We are to be awake and watch for Him.
Only God knows when.
Trust Him, He will return.

1 Thessalonians 5:2 (King James Version)–For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

God promised us eternal life.
His promise will never be broken.
Those who love and accept Jesus
know eternal life is theirs.

1 John 2:25 (King James Version)–And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

He promised He would never forsake us.
We are the ones who leave Him.
He is always with us.
He is faithful.

Hebrews 13:5 (King James Version)–…for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Once we asked Jesus into our heart and He became our personal savior,
He promised that nothing could take us away from Him.
God means what He says
And I believe Him.

John 10:28 (New King James Version)–And I give them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand.

WE CAN DEPEND ON HIS PROMISES!

Jesus promised that He would leave us with a Helper.
He did.
He gave us the Holy Spirit.
We receive Him when we accept Jesus as our personal savior.

John 14:26 (Amplified Bible)–But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf]. He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

Thank you, Jesus, for your promises.
I have faith and I trust in you.
I know I can depend
On You to keep all of Your promises.

2 Corinthians 1:20 (New King James Version)–For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

Hebrews 10:23 (New King James Version)–Let us hold firmly to the hope that we have confessed, because we can trust God to do what He promised.
