Struggles: God’s Promises – Genesis through Leviticus!

Have you ever just taken the time to look for promises God gave us in His word? As we continue to look at struggles and see and hear what God has to say, I pray that you will feel God at work in your life. I think the next struggle I bring up will be struggles through being single! But in the mean time, here are some promises that God gave us in His Word! We will start with the Old Testament and work our way through them since there are many!

Old Testament
GENESIS

“Nothing is too hard for the Lord” (18:14).
God chose Abraham, “so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him” (18:19).
“The Judge of all the earth will always do right” (18:25).
“God promised to bless Abraham and make his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Through his offspring, all nations on earth would be blessed, because he obeyed God” (22:17-18).

“The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, is slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin” (34:6-7).
LEVITICUS
“Among those who approach God he will show himself holy, and in the sight of all the people God will be honored” (10:3).
“I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy” (11:44).
