(More) Quotes on God’s Promises

I have been fascinated to note that the second most viewed post on this blog (after the Home page) is a collection of quotes about God’s promises, so I thought I would find some more for readers to consider.

The original post can be found here.

‘There is nothing God loves more than keeping promises, answering prayers, performing miracles, and fulfilling dreams. That is who He is. That is what He does. And the bigger the circle we draw, the better, because God gets more glory.’
― Mark Batterson, Be a Circle Maker: The Solution to 10,000 Problems

‘The promise of a dreamer’s future will always remain greater than their present ability. God will always give them dreams that are further along than their current level of maturity.’
― Wayne Cordeiro

‘Jesus did not promise us a life free from trouble. He is called the God of all comfort—and if there were no troubles, He would not need to be called by this name. Jesus does not promise freedom from all problems, but He does promise that we will never face situations alone.’
― Jonathan Falwell, 1,000 Days: The Ministry of Christ

‘David found the heart to pray when he received God’s Word of promise—that he would establish his throne and build him a house. Christians, however, have an infinitely greater Word of promise. God will not merely build us a house, he will make us his house. He will fill us with his presence, beauty, and glory. Every time Christians merely remember who they are in Christ, that great word comes home to us and we will find, over and over again, a heart to pray.’
― Timothy Keller, Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God

‘God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.’
― Max Lucado, Just Like Jesus: A Heart Like His

‘David knew that God had called him to be king, but he did not seek kingship. Instead, he trusted God to bring it about. On several occasions, David had an opportunity to kill Saul and claim the position God promised him, but he did not. He wanted it in God’s way and time, and eventually his patience and faithfulness were rewarded.’
― Floyd McClung, Follow: A Simple and Profound Call to Live Like Jesus

‘God makes a promise; Faith believes it; Hope anticipates it; and Patience quietly awaits it.’
― D.L. Moody, Pleasure & Profit in Bible Study

‘In truth, the Christian hope rests not ultimately upon our own diligence, but on God’s faithfulness.30 It is God, not us, who will ultimately persevere, and that is why he is able to promise us eternal life: “where the promise is, there is all this assistance. The faithfulness of the Father, the grace of the Son, and the power of the Spirit, all are engaged in our preservation.’
― John Owen, Overcoming Sin and Temptation

‘The key that unlocks the treasure chest of God’s peace is faith in the promises of God.’
― John Piper

‘It is important that we understand that God manifests no enmity toward us. He has never broken a promise. He has never violated a covenant. He has never sworn a vow to us that He failed to pay. He has never treated a human being in this world unjustly. He has never violated us as creatures. In short, He has kept His side of the relationship perfectly. But we have violated Him. We are the ones who violate the creature-Creator relationship.’
― R.C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross

‘We know not which most to wonder at, the faithfulness of God or the unbelief of His people. He keeps His promise a thousand times, and yet the next trial makes us doubt Him. He never faileth; He is never a dry well; He is never as a setting sun, a passing meteor, or a melting vapour; and yet we are as continually vexed with anxieties, molested with suspicions, and disturbed with fears, as if our God were the mirage of the desert.’
― Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening

‘True faith is never found alone; it is always accompanied by expectation. The man who believes the promises of God expects to see them fulfilled. Where there is no expectation, there is no faith.’
― A.W. Tozer

‘Those who mourn sense the rupture of a world severed from God and thus edge closer to the Father who promises to make all things new.
― Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?

‘My friends, because Jesus endured the cross, He has given us the power to endure whatever we must face in life. Even when the sky grows dark and we feel abandoned by all we love, God is there with comfort and healing. Never alone; never forsaken; always loved. That is the promise of the cross. Don’t ever lose heart. Look to the cross and victorious King, who conquered sin and death on it. He has overcome the world.’
― Darlene Zschech, Revealing Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional
