Rainbow It's absolutely astonishing to read through the Bible and see what God promises those who love and follow Him.

Just look at the rainbow - for instance. After the flood God says, to the effect, "I will never destroy the earth again with water, I promise, for a covenant I give you the rainbow."

Astonishing.

Sure, the rainbow has scientific and mathematical roots - everything God creates does! Let's be real - God is the ultimate scientist and mathematician. He created everything.

I don't believe in magic. But I do believe in God's power to create anything He wants to creates. He is after all, God.

But whether or not you believe that (I of course do because I know God personally, feel His presence every day, know His voice, am getting to know Him more and more as I seek Him, and have been utterly transformed by His love), if you don't, I will believe for both of us right now tell you it's absolutely true!

Here are 10 promises found in the Bible (there are hundreds, maybe thousands more) you can start with today. Be encouraged to read the Word of God every day you can this year - find His great and precious promises - thank Him for them - stand on them - believe them. They are AVAILABLE for you, but may not happen if you don't apprehend them by faith. Remember, faith is a choice we have each and every day. Faith in God is believing what you are hearing FROM God. If you are reading this blog post right now, why are reading it right now? Are you hearing from God THROUGH his post? I believe that you are! So let your faith in God be strengthened today as you read below!

Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Romans 8:37-39

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.”
