13 Encouraging Bible Promises

Here are 13 of my favourite Bible promises for different situations. It is my hope that you will be encouraged by knowing God wants to open the windows of heaven and bless you.

This past weekend I took these flower photos in a single walk around on our 10 acre rural homesite... some domestic... some wild.  How many can you name?

1. Need God’s help. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” –John 14:14

2. Guidance. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.” –Proverbs 3:5, 6

3. Wisdom. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and without reproach; and it shall be given to him.” –James 1:5

4. Strength. “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” –Philippians 4:13

5. Courage. “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you.” –Isaiah 41:13

6. Forgiveness. “"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." –1 John 1:9

7. Hope. “There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” –Proverbs 23:18

8. Faith. “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believeth.” –Mark 9:23

9. Love. “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” –Lamentations 3:22-23

10. Peace. “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You.” –Isaiah 26:3

11. Success. "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." –Proverbs 16: 3

12. Prosperity. “The blessing of the Lord makes one rich.” –Proverbs 10:22

13. Good Health. ”I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in good health.” –3 John 1:2

When we share God`s word with others we are in turn blessed. Do you have a favourite Bible promise or verse that you would like to share. Please do.
