God's Promises: Tuesday

Shame; Lying; Slander & Reproach; Anger; Guilt; Enemies; Prisoners; Loneliness; Worry; and Pride. Taken from the NKJV

Shame: 2 Timothy 1:12: "For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day."
We should feel shameful for believing in our Heavenly Father.

Lying: Proverbs 14: 5: "A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness will utters lies."

Slander & Reproach: Isaiah 51:7: "Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, you people in whose heart is My law: Do not fear the reproach of men. Nor be afraid of their insults."
Although words can strike hard, we must learn to ignore, pray, and let it wash off of us.

Anger: James 1:19-20: "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God."
Anger does no one any good.


Guilt: Psalm 103:12: "As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us."
Hanging on to guilt is not good for your health, therefore it is best to repent, forgive and move on.

Enemies: Deuteronomy 20:4: "For the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for your against your enemies, to save you."
We must never worry. He will always be there for us.

Prisoners: Psalm 107:14: "He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death."
We will never be prisoners unless we allow ourselves to be.

Loneliness: 2 Corinthians 6:18: "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
We are never alone, not matter if no one is immediately available.

Worry: Jeremiah 17:8: "For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out it's roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes: But it's leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit."

Pride: Job 40:12: "Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; tread down the wicked in their place."

Hi,

This comment is unrelated to your post, but I wanted to let you know that I've posted a response to your question of January 30th regarding helping a youngster with Asperger's. Hope you find it helpful. (The post will appear at 6 am on Feb. 3rd.)

Hi Tammy, thanks for your constant visit on my blog. I really appreciate that.
Thank you for your today's post. It helps me remind what are the things we must stay away from.
