Wonderful Promises

 On Saturday I was talking to a new found friend I have Matt. I recommend his blog on FREE (that’s right FREE) Christian music (www.thefreechristianmusicblog.com). Well Matt and I were talking about what we had been reading lately in our Bibles and he shared that one of the things he had been doing lately was studying the promises of God. We started listing a bunch and we both got a total “holy spirit high”. Just thinking of all the glorious promises of God filled us with such joy! I tried to get our chat history so I could share what we thought up with you all, but for some reason that chat wasn’t in either of our records. Matt did share a document his cousin had shared with him and that is who wrote these promises down. So thanks Matt’s cousin!

  2. I tried it and it didn’t work. I think Josh tried to help me do it. I still couldn’t find it. Matt couldn’t find it on his chat record either.

  3. Wow, what a short list. You’ve only touched the surface of the New Testament and quoted only one Old Testament book.

    By the way, you could have been chatting off the record.

  4. Very true Josh. Someone could write a whole blog on the promises of God. They are very plentiful. Every page of scripture reflects God’s promises. This is just a few things.
