When God makes a promise, he always keeps it. If you are struggling with hope, I encourage you to find a word from God and hold onto it. Read it, then read it again. Read is slowly, savoring every word. Memorize it. Write it on a note card and carry it around. Write it on a Post-It note and stick it to your bathroom mirror. What will happen? Your hope will burn bright!
According to one estimate, we can find 3,573 promises from God written in the Bible. I encourage you to read them all! To get started, here are what I believe to be the Top 10 Bible Promises. If you have a favorite that I have not listed, I encourage you to share it in the comments below!
