Precious promises

“…He has given us His very great and precious promises…”
2 Peter 1:4

God’s promises are precious because they tell of Precious promises
exceeding great and precious things. We have
promises in the Bible which time would fail us to
repeat, which for breadth and length are immeasurable.

They deal with every great thing which the soul can need:
promises of pardoned sin,
of sanctification,
and of teaching,
of guidance,
and of upholding,
of ennobling,
and of progress,
promises of consolation, and
of perfection.

In this blessed book you have….
promises of the daily bread of earth;
of the bread of life from heaven;
for time;
promises for eternity.

You have so many promises, that all the
conditions and positions of the believer are
met. …
There is always a promise in the volume of
inspiration suitable to your present case.

Make the Lord’s promises your delight and your
counselors, and they will befriend you at every turn.

Search the Scriptures, and you shall meet with a
promise which will be so applicable to you as to
appear to have been written after your trouble
had occurred! So exactly will it apply, that you
will be compelled to marvel at the wonderful
tenderness and suitableness of it.

As if the tailor had measured you from head to foot,
so exactly shall the garment of the promise befit you.

The promises are precious in themselves….
from their suitability to us,
their coming from God,
from their being immutable,
their being sure of performance, and
from their containing wrapped up within themselves
all that the children of God can ever need.

“…He has given us His very great and precious promises…”
2 Peter 1:4
