Think About This: “Saving faith is not just believing that Jesus lived and died. Faith that saves is the confident, continuous confession of total dependence on, and trust in Jesus Christ to meet the requirements on your behalf to give you entrance into God’s Eternal Kingdom. It’s the surrender of your life in complete trust to Him to do what you cannot do.” – John MacArthur
God’s Faithfulness – The List of 39
Posted on October 25, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters
I have been reading Pastor Robert Morgan’s new devotional, GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, and it has been such a blessing.
Welcome to this new week of Freedom Fighters. We are so thankful for you and trust the devotionals shared are a blessing to you. Thanks to each of you who are sharing them with your friends.
God’s Word is filled with promises. Some are for a specific season and reason, and others reflect His character and are available for us.
Dr. Morgan shares this list that highlights specific promises from Genesis to Malachi. My guess is that some of these are highlighted and noted in your Bible or a journal.
He calls this the “List of 39.” Here are the first 20. I’ll share the rest next week.
He will keep every promise He has made in every Old Testament book. God will keep His promise . . .
in Genesis 15:1, to be our shield and very great reward.
in Exodus 33:14, to go with us and give us rest.
in Leviticus 26:12, to walk among us and be our God.
in Numbers 6:24–25, to bless us and keep us and make His face shine upon us.
in Deuteronomy 4:7, to be near us when we pray.
in Joshua 1:9, to be with us wherever we go.
in Judges 6:24, to be our peace.
in Ruth 4:15, to renew our lives and sustain us in old age.
in 1 Samuel 2:9, to guard the feet of His faithful servants.
in 2 Samuel 22:29, to turn our darkness into light.
in 1 Kings 3:12, to give us wise and discerning hearts.
in 2 Kings 3:16, to fill our dry valleys with water.
in 1 Chronicles 28:20, to be with us without interruption until our work is done.
in 2 Chronicles 15:7, to reward our labor.
in Ezra 8:22, to rest His gracious hand on those who look to Him.
in Nehemiah 2:20, to give us success in doing His will.
in the book of Esther, to accomplish His providential plans for His people.
in Job 19:26, to resurrect our bodies at the end of time.
in Psalm 34:7, to send His angels to encamp around those who fear Him.
in Proverbs 3:6, to direct the steps of those who acknowledge and trust Him (see KJV).
I love how he concludes the chapter:
Every word God speaks in the Bible is, in some way, directly or indirectly, a promise, for it gives His thoughts, His mind, His intentions, and His faithful words to our needy hearts.
