God’s Amazing Promises

“God is continually holding out inducements to man to listen to Him, obey Him, and serve Him…..He has….shown His perfect knowledge of human nature, by spreading over the Book a perfect wealth of promises suitable to every kind of experience and every condition of life….Their name is legion. The subject is almost inexhaustible. There is hardly a step in man’s life, from childhood to old age, hardly any position in which man can be placed, for which the Bible has not held out encouragement to every one who desires to do right in the sight of God. There are “shalls” and “wills” in God’s treasury for every condition. About God’s infinite mercy and compassion, about his readiness to receive all who repent and believe, about His willingness to forgive, pardon, and absolve the chief of sinners, about His power to change hearts and alter our corrupt nature, about the encouragements to pray, and hear the gospel, and draw near to the throne of grace, about strength for duty, comfort in trouble, guidance in perplexity, help in sickness, consolation in death, support under bereavement, happiness beyond the grave, reward in glory, about all these things there is an abundant supply of promises in the Word.”
