10 Bible Verses of Encouragement on The Promises of God - plus FREE PRINTABLE


We all need encouragement and the best place to go is to the Bible.

In this blog Post I have tried to gather some Bible passages or Bible verses which will encourage us all around the topic of God's Promises.







I do believe that we should not just grab a verse and read it on its own but we should always lift our bibles and read a passage of scripture to make sure that we know the real meaning and context of each of the verses we are putting our trust in. 

I pray that you will do the same and only use this list to guide you as to where you may find help.



So here are 10 Bible verses or short passages for us to turn to in times when we need to be encouraged about those Promises God has made to us.


Because these are
 




1. God's Faithfulness

Deuteronomy 7 v 9

Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, 
the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations 
with those who love him and keep his commandments. 




God is faithful to keep His covenant (promise) with all those who love and obey Him.
When we read about the Covenant God made with His people in the Old Testament we can see how sacred and important He considered it to be.



2. God's Presence

Joshua 1 v 9

Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, 
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. 




Many times we just quote the latter part of this verse and in fact when we were leaving Northern Ireland to go and live in Belgium and feeling rather inadequate because I did not speak French or Dutch I was given this lovely picture below and I have loved having it as a reminder of this promise of God ever since.







3. God's Guidance


Psalm 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye. 




God has promised to teach us the way to go through this life.
He has promised to be our guide. 




4. God's Strength

Isaiah 40:31

But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; 
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, 
they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.  




Look at all the benefits spoken of here in this verse yet only one thing is required of us  -  to wait on the Lord.
Take the time to just wait on God, read His Word, think on His Word, memorize His Word, hold it close to our hearts and we will know these benefits.




5. God's Care & Help

Isaiah 41:13

For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand.
Saying to you, 
'Fear not, I will help you.' 



God cares enough to hold our hands through everything, He is promising to care for us and help us and will do not need to be afraid.



6. God's Mercy

Isaiah 54:10

For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the Lord, who has mercy on you. 




God has promised we will never be without his kindness and peace because He has mercy on us and that mercy is forever and ever - even when this world is over. 



7. God's Love

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, 
that whosoever believes on him should not perish 
but have everlasting life. 




God has promised to love us forever and the outworking of that is His gift of Salvation for us when we put our trust in Him. 



8. God's Provision

John 6:35

Then Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. 
He who comes to me shall never hunger, 
and he who believes in me shall never thirst." 




We never have to worry about anything because God is all-sufficient and can provide us with everything we need in our Spiritual Life.



9. God's Heaven is our Hope

John 14:2

In My Father's house are many mansions; 
if it were not so, I would have told you. 
I go to prepare a place for you. 




God has promised the greatest thing of all - HOPE - an eternity in His Presence that He prepared for each one of us.








10. God's Peace

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. 
I do not give to you as the world gives. 
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. 





While we are still here on earth we do not need to be worried or anxious about what will happen as times change and governments change.
God through the words of Jesus has promised us His Peace.
