A List of the Promises of God
The blessings and gifts that God promises to give to those who believe in Him include freedom from addictions, deliverance from sin and evil, financial provision, hope for lost and hurt family and friends, recovery from depression, restoring a marriage, good health, healing, being free from fear and anxiety, strength, and many more.
We have heard of God’s promise to Abraham and Israel, but what about the promise to us? Are we eligible to receive this promise? You can read about it in this article if you are a Christian. The promises of God are relevant to us today because they are universal. Here are some of them. First, you should read them to understand these promises’ significance better. Then, you can use them to understand God better.
God’s promise to Abraham
If you were to study the Bible, you would find that God’s promise to Abraham is not limited to physical blessings. God tells Abraham that He will bless his seed and their descendants. Those who are descendants of Abraham are called “the sons of the living God.”
When God made his promise to Abraham, he was already 75 years old and had no children of his own. His wife, Sarah, was past childbearing age. Abraham was unsure how the promise would come to fruition, but he trusted God’s promise. It’s important to remember that God’s promises are often made when the circumstances do not match His words. That’s what makes them so important!
Abraham’s name was changed to Abraham, and he would be the father of many nations. His possession of the land would be everlasting. God’s promise to Abraham was confirmed with an oath. The pluralized word seed is used in other versions of the Bible. The KJV, RV, and ESV versions are the correct version of Genesis 22:17. The other versions, such as the NASB, misspell the word.
When God promised Abraham the land, he did not know where he would settle. It took Abraham twenty-five years to get there, but God reminded him of his promise and told him that He would give his descendants more than the stars in the sky. Despite his doubts, Abraham obeyed God’s commands and began to grow in faith. As a result, Abraham grew in faith, and God revealed to him what he would receive as a reward for obeying Him.
God’s promise to Israel
The word “determined” in Hebrew means “cut, decree, determine.” Daniel asked whether God would use them again, wondering if He would punish their rebellion. Then God answered him with this verse: “It is the day of the Deliverer, from Sion.” This Deliverer would turn away ungodliness from Jacob, bringing the nation back to Himself. After the tribulation, God will magnify His name among the nations, and Israel will never rebel against Him again.
As the Creator of the universe, the Lord God of Israel makes it clear that His promise to Israel is everlasting. The promise is expressed most clearly and powerfully possible. It states that Israel will be as sure as the universe’s function forever. Isaiah is a prophet, not a king. We should understand this prophecy as a prophet. The Bible contains these types of promises and the ones that follow them.
When God made the covenant with Israel, He was not only confirming His word but also fulfilling it. When the Jews could defeat the enemies, God promised to give them the land. The Promised Land was a symbol of God’s blessing, and the people of Israel would be exalted and honored. God had not broken His word, but His faithfulness was manifested in Christ. This is the ultimate fulfillment of God’s promise to His people.
Paul addresses the question of Israel’s failure in chapter 9 by clarifying that God’s promises to Israel were not general but specific. God had promised to bless some of Israel’s physical descendants but specifically designated a line through which the blessings would flow. God had chosen Isaac as the seed of the promise, but not the seed of Ishmael or Esau because Jacob’s elder son would inherit his blessings.
God’s promise to all people
“The Lord has given us a new name and a new covenant in His Son, Jesus.” In the words of Isaiah, God’s promise to all people has been fulfilled. In Jesus, the only true God has revealed Himself to us in the flesh. The apostle Paul wrote that Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s promise to all people. We are invited to come to Him and be saved. We are invited to worship Him, to know the true God.
Although God rejected the Jews as partially redeemed, He has not abandoned the Gentiles. Under the New Covenant, God has opened His arms to all people. This promise was made before the Jews were even born, and it has been fulfilled for all of humanity. God made the promise to Abraham even before Isaac and Jacob came into existence. The promise to Abraham had already been made, and it was fulfilled because he believed in God. Sarah would bear Abraham a son, and Abraham would be the father of many nations.
Throughout the Bible, the word “promise” appears over 50 times. The number of actual promises in the Bible ranges from 9,000 to 30,000! Indeed, we would be astonished to find just one of these. However, we have been given a great promise in the Scriptures: salvation. The Bible also promises that all things will work out for the good of His people. The word “promise” has many meanings.
Throughout Scripture, God makes countless promises. Through His grace and righteousness, he pledged certain things to His people. This is the Abrahamic Covenant. In Genesis Chapter 12, God promised Abraham to be the heir of the world. That promise was repeated in Genesis Chapter 22. We can never be sure if that promise will come to pass, but we can rest assured that God will fulfill it sooner or later. Therefore, we should know how to recognize God’s promises.
God’s promise to you
There is power and assurance in God’s promises, and they can give you hope when your circumstances seem unbalanced. When uncertainty strikes, find a Scripture about God’s promise and meditate on it.

We can trust God’s promises to fulfill our dreams and desires. His promises never change. Although they may take a while to manifest, God never breaks them. Whether the promise is in a small way or in a big way, God always follows through on it. Joshua 21:45 tells us that God fulfilled all of His promises. We can also rest because no human being can separate us from God.
No circumstance can separate us from God’s love. Death, sickness, and unemployment cannot separate us from God. Nor can temptation, sin, or betrayal separate us from God’s love. Our faith in God’s grace and power is sufficient to conquer all our troubles. God’s love is so deep and profound that nothing will separate us from Him. So what’s the difference between God’s promises and the promises we make to ourselves?
When God anoints you with His Spirit, He empowers you to be His witness. You’ll be a witness of Christ in Jerusalem, all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. God has promised you the power to live a life of goodness and mercy, and you can be sure of this. If you follow His path, you will receive all of these blessings. You’ll know that you’re never alone.
God’s promise to you in Jesus

Remember that God is faithful to keeping his promises. You will find power, joy, and peace by focusing on these Scriptures. God’s promise to you in Jesus:
You can also claim a Bible verse expressing the promise of eternal life. If you are struggling with addictions, grieving the loss of a family member, or experiencing a difficult financial situation, claim this promise over your life. You can also claim God’s promise of good health, healing, and strength. There are thousands of promises from God, many of which are fulfilled by faith in Jesus.
The New Testament says you will be saved if you confess Jesus as the Messiah. This promises eternal life to everyone who believes in Jesus as the Messiah. When you have faith in Jesus as the Messiah, you will be free from sin and suffering and enjoy eternal life. When you confess to Jesus as your Lord, you will be saved from your sins. However, the truth is that God can fulfill every promise he makes to His people.
When it comes to following Jesus, remember that he is the head of the church and holds all authority. He is larger than the universe and is more significant than sin. His disciples follow Him, seeking meaning in life on earth and eternal life with Him. But if you reject this truth, you’ll end up like everyone else and will not receive the promised eternal life. But Jesus offers a way to overcome sin and live meaningfully on earth.
