Promises of God

Faith Rests on the Promises – Richard Cecil

Faith Rests on the Promises – Richard Cecil

Faith laughs at the shaking of the spear; unbelief trembles at the shaking of a leaf, unbelief starves the soul; faith finds food in famine, and a table in the wilderness. In the greatest danger, faith says, “I have a great God.” When outward strength is broken, faith rests on the promises.

God’s Promises are Sufficient – Hudson Taylor

Are we not told to seek first the Kingdom of God—not the means to advance it—and that “all these things” shall be added to us? Such promises are surely sufficient.

An Active Faith – Matthew Henry

An active faith can give thanks for a promise, though it be not as yet performed, knowing that God’s bonds are as good as ready money [cash]. 

– Matthew Henry –


Our Lives Are Full of Supposes – Hannah Whitall Smith

Our lives are full of supposes. Suppose this should happen, or suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we bear it? But, if we are living in the high tower of the dwelling place of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives. We shall be quiet from the fear of evil, for no threatenings of evil can penetrate into the high tower of God.
