No matter how many hurtles and struggles we are stumbling upon and struggling with in this life, we can hold God’s promises close to our hearts. Through this battle we call “life,” we all struggle with emotions, whether it be anger, fear, worry, grief, sorrow, peace, joy, hopelessness, discouragement, contentment, jealousy, envy, and many others. Remembering the promises that God has in store for us can make all of the trials and tribulations we fight on a daily basis seem a little more worth it in the end.
These Promises from God help us escape from the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
Rainbows are a symbol of God’s Promises, peace, or a new beginning.
Whenever I see a rainbow in the sky, it reminds me of the promise God made after the great flood that He would never allow the flood to destroy the earth and man again. A rainbow also symbolizes peace or a new beginning. However, this is only one of the many promises of God back in the time of Noah and the Ark.
(Genesis 9:12-16) – 12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
What are some more of God’s Promises that we can look forward to?
1.) God promises reconciliation to Him through the death of his son Jesus Christ.
(Romans 5:6-10) – 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

6.) God promises His provision for our everyday needs.
(Matthew 6:25-32) –
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
7.) God promises an answer to our prayers.
(1 John 5:14-15) – 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

11.) God promises a way of escape whenever we become tempted.
(1 Corinthians 10:13) – 13 No temptationhas overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be temptedbeyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

(John 14:1-3) – 14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
