Promises for: Confidence in the LORD

John 14:14
"If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it."

compiled by Katie Stewart


"Faith... reveals itself in... committing itself to the testimony and will of God,
in resting in the promises and declarations of God, and in the word and work of Christ."
-from "SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY" --New Window by Charles G. Finney

"Can ye find any fault with your Saviour?... Hath his truthfulness departed?
Have his words been broken? Have his promises failed?...
Ah, no!... in him there is no sin."

-from "SERMONS" --New Window by C. H. Spurgeon

"God is represented as clothed with zeal as with a cloak; and after making some of his
exceeding great and precious promises
, he concludes by saying,
'the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.'
-from "SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY" --New Window by Charles G. Finney

"Whereby are given unto us Exceeding Great And Precious Promises:
that by These ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience Godliness;
And to Godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound,
They make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful
in the Knowledge of our LORD Jesus Christ
2 Peter 1:4-8

Confidence Not Misplaced

"The LORD God will help me"
(Isaiah 50:7).

"These are in prophecy the words of Messiah in the day of His obedience unto death, when He gave His back to the smiters and His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. He was confident in divine support and trusted in Jehovah.

O my soul, thy sorrows are as the small dust of the balance compared with thy LORD's! Canst thou not believe that the LORD God will help thee? Thy LORD was in a peculiar position; for as the representative of sinful men -- their substitute and sacrifice -- it was needful that the Father should leave Him and cause Him to come under desertion of soul. No such necessity is laid upon thee: thou art not bound to cry,
'Why hast thou forsaken me?' Did thy Savior even in such a case still rely upon God, and canst not thou? He died for thee and thus made it impossible that thou shouldst be left alone; wherefore, be of good cheer.

In this day's labors or trials say,
'The LORD God will help me.' Go forth boldly. Set your face like a flint and resolve that no faintness or shamefacedness shall come near you. If God helps, who can hinder? If you are sure of omnipotent aid, what can be too heavy for you? Begin the day joyously, and let no shade of doubt come between thee and the eternal sunshine."
